Jews are people who are Jewish. One Jewish holiday is Shabbat. Shabbat happens every Friday at sundown. We light two candles on high stands to celebrate it. It lasts until evening on Saturday. Shabbat is basically a day of rest. The Torah mentions it and tells us that no work should be done during this period. 

In the bible, Genesis talks about how God created the earth in 7 days, but rested on last day. Shabbat commemorates this by having Jews also take a day off each week to reflect on things and be more mindful. Many Jews also attend Shabbat religious services on either Friday night or Shabbat morning.

Special meals are often eaten, such as having delicious Challah bread.
