Saturday offers many ways to observe Shabbat. Sleep late. Attend morning services and hear the Torah read aloud. Have a leisurely lunch with family or friends. Spend the afternoon reading, learning Torah, playing outside, hanging out with friends. Later, you can take a nap or go to a quick afternoon service to hear the Torah read again. Shabbat offers an opportunity to pause—to take a break from our daily activities and responsibilities in order to reconnect with our friends, our loved ones, and creation.
