Six days your work should be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a holy day, a Sabbath of complete rest to God. (Exodus 35:2)
Shabbat, the seventh day, has a double sanctity: elevation of the earthly, and descent of the heavenly. In the painting, a table with candles seems to be rising upward, the candle flames becoming a golden aura reflecting the uplifting power of Shabbat. But Shabbat is also a gift from Above, crowning us with Divine light, and so a multitude of crowns seem to be gently descending. The crowns can also be seen as bowls holding blessings that flow down onto the Shabbat table. The Zohar says that the blessings of the week are dependent on and inspired by Shabbat. The passive form “six days your work should be done” reflects how work can be made holy when we stay focused on God. Just as the Shabbat table is a “vessel” to receive blessing, so too (through our efforts during the week) we are able to create channels for blessings, culminating in a “Shabbat of rest.”
