The Day of Rest - The Good Gift from God

Every Friday evening, Jerusalem quiets down to celebrate the Sabbath. The bustle and noise of the city stops, the shops are closed, and the people gather together around the Sabbath table.

When the surroundings and the society quiet down, it is easier for the people to rest. In this episode of Israel Speaks, we will learn about the day of rest, the Sabbath, in Israel. We will tell about its forms in Orthodox Judaism, but we will deal it also from the point of view of a Messianic Jew, Daniel. For him, the day of rest is above all a gift from God to people, a source of joy and relaxation.
