Shabbat Resource Pack
One of the main values of the Jewish people is the day of rest - Shabbat.
Throughout the generations and around the world, we have kept and marked this special day in many different ways: religious traditions, family time, culture and resting from the busy week.
These resources, from the collections of the National Library of Israel, give a glimpse of the different aspects of Shabbat.
Throughout history, Shabbat traditions have differed between countries and times. This activity will allow you to compare and contrast a wide variety of artistic depictions of Jews around the world observing Shabbat during the 1800's and early 1900's.
