Shabbat. A Feast Day Every Week

Workshop for Students and After-School Clubs About the Jewish Day of Rest

Friday evening marks the beginning not only of the weekend but also of Shabbat. Many Jews celebrate the start of this weekly day of rest with a shared family meal. The table is beautifully set with two candles, wine, and two loaves of braided challah bread.

On a tour of the exhibition A Is for Jewish, students learn what happens to the bread, why a spice box is sniffed on Saturday evening, and what other traditions shape Jewish life and daily routines.
