Sabbath is holy day of rest observed by the followers of Judaism on the seventh day of the week, Saturday. The Torah describes the Sabbath as a reminder of God's rest after the Creation. The Sabbath is also the celebration the Hebrews' liberation from Egypt. The specific kinds of work prohibited in scripture include the lighting of fire, plowing, harvesting, and cooking. During the Sabbath, Jews eat more elaborately and leisurely. The Sabbath is a day for the family to get together to enjoy each others company and to rest up for the upcoming week.
