Cultural Tidbit 

Shabbat, or the Sabbath, is Judaism's day of rest on the seventh day of the week—i.e., Saturday. Traditionally on this day, religious Jews remember the biblical story describing the creation of the heavens and the earth in six days and look forward to a future Messianic Age. Since the Jewish religious calendar counts days from sunset to sunset, Shabbat begins on the evening of what on the secular calendar is Friday.  According to halakha (Jewish religious law), Shabbat is observed from a few minutes before sunset on Friday evening until the appearance of three stars in the sky on Saturday night. Shabbat is ushered in by lighting candles and reciting a blessing. Traditionally, three festive meals are eaten starting on Friday night, Saturday afternoon and night.

"I don't understand it myself.  I was one way and now I am completely different.  And the thing that happened in between - was Him.  So yes, I will know him for the rest of my life."                - Mary Magdalene
