How good it is to have Shabbat! We all love the Sabbath - one day of rest, after six days in which we are busy with so many things. Shabbat is a wonderful day where no work is done, one day of peace and quiet. It was given only to the people of Israel and unites them. The writer Tami Halevi has collected for you some beautiful Shabbat stories from the Talmud and the midrashim: a story about a man named Yosef who loved Shabbat so much that he won a diamond, a story about Rabbi Hanina ben Dosa and the miracle of the candles that were lit in his house, a story about a unique spice that makes Shabbat foods delicious, a story about A guest who came to sit down and ate almost all the food that was served... and more great stories that will enrich your world, accompanied by Shirley Weissman's beautiful illustrations. The Jewish Stories series is a series that brings the best stories of the Jewish people to their generations in accessible adaptations and in a beautiful new format.
