The Sabbath and its Connection to the Redemption

Shabbat, i.e., the Sabbath, is not simply a time of relaxation and rest. It is not simply a time for family and good food. It is, as the zemer states, "a taste of the world to come." Shabbat is very much connected to the Redemption. The last verse of Mah Yedidut puts it beautifully

;

A taste of the world to come, the rest of the day of Shabbat

All who enjoy it, will reap great joy

From the travails of the coming of the Moshiaḥ,

they will be delivered to tranquility

Our redemption will sprout, and pain and suffering will vanish


Discover what that means as we review various passages related to this amazing concept.
