“There are really two kinds of Shabbat experiences: those of the fall and winter months, when the Sabbath begins around four o’clock on Friday afternoons and ends around five o’clock on Saturday, and those of the spring and summer, when the Sabbath starts at eight or eight-thirty and ends at nine o’clock or even later.”
