A special message on a special Shabbat | Worship
Last updated 10/5/2016 at Noon
If you want to understand what being Jewish entails, start with observing Shabbat (the Sabbath).
That’s what rabbis frequently tell people considering conversion.
Despite its simplicity, Shabbat is the most important Jewish holiday, as Jews imitate the Divine act by stepping back from the material word, ceasing work, sanctifying relationships with loved ones and the awe of creation.
This shouldn’t be a surprise to you given one of the Ten Commandments states we should “Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy.”
However, all Shabbatot (plural for Shabbat) are not created equal....
