    The Sabbath and then Sunday is yom Rochon. if you live it for instance as we do in jerusalem the busiest day of the week is Sunday everything takes off they've been resting on the Sabbath and then everybody gets going the first day of the week. And most or many congregations of believers in Israel hold their worship services on Saturday because sunday is a day of work. Understand? That's just by the way, but as I say there's no extra charge for them.
