Sabbath Celebration

What is Sabbath?

The Sabbath was instituted as a memorial to His creation. (p.21)

It really was an awesome experience, and I truly understand why Friday is called "preparation day." I spent ALL DAY getting it ready.



I made Challah Bread. My very first homemade bread. It was delicious!



We also had Basalmic Chicken, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, pineapples, and banana pudding.

I found some candle holders that looked like the Star of David.



This is how we had the candles set up. I had the two traditional white candles representing Creation and Redemption. I also included one candle for each child.



On Saturday (the Sabbath) we went to an annual festival held downtown. I gathered that the day was supposed to be focused on spending time with family.

Supper that evening was very light. Salad, bread (leftover Challah), and pineapples.

  1. That bread looks sooooo good. We have one child who can't have wheat (celiac) so we all do without it for his sake. Everything looks awesome. Now to recover... :) I bet the kids loved it!

  3. What a nice spread! My hubby was working on the day we were to do our Sabbath with MFW. We still have to do it. I wonder, would you e-mail me the recipe you used for your Challah bread???
