In our Torah reading for holidays, we not only recite the laws of holidays, we include Shabbat, and oddest of all, some laws about sacrificing animals. What do all these laws have to do with one another? Shabbat and the holidays seem like separate phenomena, but... is the Bible trying to say something about the importance of Shabbat as it relates to other Jewish holidays?

In this video, Rabbi Fohrman makes a fascinating argument about how Shabbat works and shows that there are Shabbatot in different realms. Through this analysis, he uncovers what Shabbat is really about, and the importance of the Sabbath Day for understanding other Jewish holidays.
