This is long overdue, and I really hope some fringe groups don't ruin this for the rest of us. Part of the reason that Israelis are so intense and stressed is because we have no weekend or leisure time. Shabbat is not a vacation day. Now we have to run around on Friday getting ready for Shabbat, then right after Shabbat back into the thick of things. We need and deserve a day off (besides Shabbat) just to relax, travel, be with family, and for the first time ever, sleep late. Let's hope this happens sooner rather than later.
