-Exodus 16:29 "Let no man go out of his place on the seventh day"

HaShem gave us the holy day of Shabbat.

He wants us to rest, be peaceful and concentrate on using this

Many of the laws of keeping Shabbat help us in creating this
peaceful atmosphere and feeling of holiness.

We usually feel much more relaxed and calm when we stay in our

over 2000 cubits (approximately a kilometer) from the edge of
town on Shabbat.

Within the settled area of a town or city, there are no limits
on the distance we may walk on Shabbat.
