Shabbat shalom

image Dream of Goldfish, Jiri Meitner

“In discussing the meaning of the verse, ‘and on the seventh day He finished His work,’ the ancient rabbis suggested that an act of creation took place on the seventh day. The world would not be complete if the six days did not culminate in the Sabbath.”
Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2005), 54.
