שַׁבָּתSHABBAT


BACKGROUND
... And it was evening and it was morning, the sixth day. The heavens and the earth and all they contain were complete. On the seventh day, God completed the work and rested on the seventh day from all the work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, for on that day, God rested from all the work that God had intended to do.
~ Genesis 1:31 - 2:3

Shabbat is the first holiday mentioned in the Torah and the only holiday discussed in the Ten Commandments. As stated in the Torah, the holiday was first celebrated when God ceased work after spending six days creating the world. The text states that God rested, blessed the seventh day and made it holy.
