In Judaism, the Shabbat is no ordinary day of the week. It is a time when the world is filled with peace and calm, when families gather round the table to celebrate the miracle of serenity. During the Shabbat, the Torah calls people to distance themselves from the chaotic noise of weekdays to realise that the world has already been created and, for one day, can go without man’s help. Six days a week, people strive to rule the world but on the seventh day, they must strive to master themselves.

The Jews believe that by respecting the Sabbath, a person becomes like God himself, who rested from the work of the world creation on the seventh day. Thus, a man releases himself from the enslaving routine and becomes the master of labor, but not his slave.

Combining the theory set forth in the Torah and the practical, life approach, Shabbat is also called upon to curb the egoism of a person and to remind that freedom on the seventh day is not permissiveness at all. Shabbat is the glorification of the Supreme and the refusal of creation as a sign of respect for Heavenly Father, who rewarded man with the opportunity to create.
