Product Description
The Vilna Gaon notes that the creations of the first three days and those of the next three days paralleled and complemented one another. Light was created on the first day, and the luminaries were set in place on the fourth. The seas and atmosphere were created on the second day, the aquatic and bird life were created on the fifth. The dry land and vegetation were created on the third, and populated on the sixth. The Midrash notes this phenomenon and comments that the Sabbath came and protested to G-d, as it were, saying, "You have given a 'mate' to each of the days, but You have not given me a mate." G-d responded that the Jewish people would be its mate, because Israel would accept the commandment to observe the Sabbath. Bats HaLevi explains the Sabbath's plaint. The items completed on the first three days were implemented on the next three days, but what would bear the message of the Sabbath that G-d is the Creator Who brought the world into being in six days and rested on the seventh? G-d replied that Israel would declare that testimony - it would be the mate of the Sabbath.
