On the seventh day, God rested. We are told about God’s Shabbat because it provides the model for the Shabbat that we enact and experience. If we look closely at this description we can see beyond it to an instruction for how we can make our own Shabbat and how to make Shabbat ours. It demonstrates how Shabbat functions for and within each individual person. As what makes Shabbat unique and beloved is that each person’s Shabbat is truly and entirely their own.
