“… we know that at the sunset of Sabbath eve, [Rabbi Hanina the Great] would clothe himself in beautiful robes, burst forth in a dance and exclaim, presumably in the presence of his friends: ‘Come, let us go out to welcome the Queen Sabbath.'”
Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath (New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2005), 53.
