'Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is Shabbos…'' (Exodus 20;9-10) The sages explain that each and every day’s labor has a special connection to the upcoming Shabbos.
My Jewish Days of the Week is a fun-filled journey toward the best day of all. It begins with a family Sunday spent in the garden, a busy Monday spent at school, and ends with Thursday grocery shopping and Friday cooking and cleaning. All week long, the characters prepare for the experience of ushering in and observing Shabbos. The catchy rhymes and old-world illustrations portray everyday life as a joyous adventure for toddlers. Naturally, Shabbos itself is given top billing as:
a go-to-shul and walking day
a story-telling, talking day
a friend and neighbor meeting day
a yummy challah-eating day!
