The Hebrew Names for the Days of the Week

The 7th Day Calendar is derived from the Biblical account of Creation. In the beginning, G-d created the heavens and the earth... This event took place in 6 days and on the seventh day, G-d ceased from all of His Work and rested on the Sabbath.
On the Hebew Calendar, all of the days of the week are represented by numbers; i.e. Day 1, Day 2, with the exception of the seventh (7th) day. This day is referred to as the Sabbath Day or in Hebrew, Shabbat. It's literal meaing is rest. Thus, the Seventh Day of the Week is the Day that G-d sanctified as the Sabbath and rested. Thus it is called Yom Shabbat.

Below is a listing of the Days of the Week. Please note the Secular days of the Week that coincide with the Hebrew Days.
