Shabbat is the centerpiece of Jewish life. God has given the Jewish people a day of rest and spiritual reflection. This model’s God’s creation of the world in six days, while dedicating the 7th to rest.

The many customs & rituals of Shabbat include: 

On Shabbat, we take a break from the daily physical work to spend time with our loved ones, enjoy a full day of complete bliss and spiritual reflection.

We don’t work, we don’t drive, we don’t cook (we use a Shabbat hot plate and a Shabbat hot water urn to keep our food & drinks & drinks warm).

It’s the one day our bodies get to rest and regenerate, without the “noise” of the outside world.
