One day a week we hyper Israeli Jews detach and enter into the tranquility of a sanctuary in time.
All because of what Genesis says: "And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy."
In the creation, in the beginning, time was the first thing that God made holy.
The Sabbath has its own architecture of holiness and Jews feel secure inside.
It is said that for the 25 hours of the Sabbath we receive a "neshama yetera," an added soul.
In a few hours the sun will set here in Jerusalem, just after we have lit the candles, and life will slow down.
Wishing you all Shabbat shalom, Sabbath peace.
City Daily Photo group's theme day today is tranquility.
