Sabbath and Holiday

The Jewish holidays and festivities are a tradition spanning thousands of years.  Each holiday is set in the Hebrew calendar, beginning and ending at dusk.  There are many holidays in the Hebrew calendar, some derived of the Torah, some of our Sages and some added over the years, commemorating events experienced by the Jewish people.  The first day mentioned in the Torah, in the Book of Genesis, is the Sabbath.
