Welcome Shabbat with TBT

 In Judaism there is one holiday that occurs every week – Shabbat –  beginning at sundown on Friday and ending on Saturday evening with Havdalah, a short ceremony that separates Shabbat from the rest of the week.

Inspired by the Torah’s story of God resting after creating the world (Genesis 2:1-3), Shabbat celebrates creation and offers a respite from the hectic pace of the rest of the week. Shabbat is a day of rest, and also a day of pleasure and delight. Shabbat is a time that is set aside to take notice of the wonders around us.1

We offer a variety of ways to welcome Shabbat with our TBT community.
