so something i have noticed about living in israel. everyone talks about the lack of a sunday, and how much they wish they had one, and to be honest i would also sometime s appreciate an few extra hours to pull things together after shabbat before plunging back into the thick of things. but one consequence i have realised of not having a sunday is that shabbat really is the day of rest. it is my only day of rest, it is our only family day of rest, and this has returned shabbat to its correct place as the calm in the midst of the storm.
