Jews Celebrate Shabbat from Sundown Friday Night Until Sundown Saturday Night
Shabbat, or the Sabbath, is a weekly observance by Jews all around the world.
The idea behind Shabbat is that it is a day of rest, as G-d created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th, so do we. Yes, that means in Israel we start our week on Sunday and generally work until Thursday or Friday at around 14:00. Then Shabbat begins at sundown Friday night and lasts until Saturday night at sundown.
We refrain from using electricity or cooking for these ~25 hours, so our recipes are designed for delicious Friday night meals and Saturday lunches (and afternoon noshes)!
