What is Shabbat?

Those who have witnessed the candle lighting ceremony in Jewish homes on Shabbat or festival eves can attest to the fact that something very special takes place in at that time. The Jewish women and girls in the house usher in the holy day by lighting candles and reciting quiet prayers. It is a time for introspection and supplications from G-d.


Shabbat is an island of tranquility in the maelstrom of work, anxiety, struggle and tribulation that characterizes our daily lives for the other six days of the week. Throughout the week, our enjoyment of life's blessings poses a certain challenge: we are physical beings in a physical world, and must be ever watchful that pleasure should not sink to decadence. But than comes the holy Shabbat (Sabbath) day. Shabbat is our weekly taste of this future world


We honor the holy day of Shabbat (Sabbath) with delicious food, a richly-set table, the glow of candlelight, sweet singing, luxuriant sleep. But this is not all, the holy Shabbat (Sabbath) day elevates both body and soul to a higher, more spiritual plane, and to pleasure the Shabbat with food, drink and comfort is a mitzvah, a G-dly deed.
