(also Shabbas or Shabbes)
The Yiddish term for the Jewish Sabbath.
- It has been said, ‘Even more than Israel has kept the Shabbos, the Shabbos has kept Israel.’
- I came with the yeshiva to wish patients a good Shabbos.
- This is, by no means, to suggest that those in positions of power and decision - making should just pray to God, eat strictly kosher food, keep the Shabbos and hope for the best.
