Torah and Shabbat Belong Exclusively to the Jews

24 Tevet 5779

HaKadosh Baruch Hu gave His most precious gifts to the Jewish People...
...And the Children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to make the Sabbath an eternal covenant for their generations. Between Me and the Children of Israel it is a sign forever that in six days Hashem made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.

You did not give it, Hashem, our God, to the nations of the lands, nor did You make it the inheritance, our King, of the worshipers of graven idols. And in its contentment the uncircumcised shall not abide - for to Israel, Your people, have You given it in love, to the seed of Jacob, whom You have chosen.... 

(Excerpted from the Amidah of the Shabbat Service)
