According to the Torah, Shabbat commemorates the day that God rested from creating the world; the word Shabbat literally means “he rested.” Shabbat is celebrated, first and foremost, by observing the holy day as a day of rest from all work.

Synagogue services every Friday night include kabbalat Shabbat, receiving the Shabbat, when special songs are sung. It is a beautiful way to start Shabbat. At home, candles are lit and blessed and parents bless their children.
