Laws of the Sabbath. A detailed study guide to help you understand the meaning of the Jewish Sabbath and its laws.

It is written in the book of Shemot (31:12-13): “And the Most High said to Moses: Tell the children of Israel: if only you keep My Sabbath, for it (the Sabbath) is a sign between Me and you in all your generations. So that you know that I am the Most High, who sanctifies you.” Notice here the Sabbath is called a sign. But – familiar to whom and about what?
The ancient Jewish thinker Rabbi Saadia Gaon explains that Shabbat literally tells the peoples of the world the following: before you is a Jew, a son of the people who has been chosen by the Almighty. Those. a Jew can always be recognized by his behavior on the Sabbath. While in town, he closes his store on this day of the week; while on the road, he stops to rest…
The Sabbath is a kind of Jewish flag; it is it that distinguishes the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Yaakov from all the nations of the world. Moreover, it highlights much more than kashrut or national holidays.
