The Jewish Sabbath, in Hebrew called Shabbat, or rest, has been kept and understood for 4000 years of Jewish history. We know by the books of Moishe Rebbeinu (Moses our Teacher), the Torah (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy), that Moses copied down all of man’s history. The full weight of history, from Adam and Eve onward, was all Orally passed down to Moses. And, every Jewish family was required to put to memory all of the history of Judaism, not just Moses! Abraham, Isaac and Jacob were all required to learn and then teach the younger ones the full history of man and then its continuance as each Jewish son grew up with this knowledge. It was an awesome responsibility.
