Shabbat, the day of rest, is considered the most important Jewish holiday—and it happens every week! Beginning at dusk on Friday and lasting until sunset the following evening, Shabbat is a time for individuals and families to relax and recenter, shifting focus from the stress of the work week to the pleasures of home, family, community and spirituality.

Find out what time Shabbat starts this week.
