Yet My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you for your generations to know that I am the LORD Who sanctifies you. The Rabbis expound the word “know” and say that intrinsic to the Sabbath experience is knowing that God gives us the Sabbath. There are many great ways to relax, unwind and take a break from the routine of the week but they’re not all the same as Shabbat. If we are blessed with two day weekends, then one day should be set aside for God’s Sabbath and the other for taking a well-deserved break from the routine of the week.
