321 - JOURNEYING ON THE SABBATH


Exodus 16:29 -- “See! For the LORD has given you the Sabbath; therefore He gives you on the sixth day bread for two days. Let every man remain in his place; let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.”

By this prohibition, it is forbidden to journey on the Sabbath. It is contained in His words, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.* Tradition fixes the limit beyond which it is forbidden to go at two thousand cubits** beyond the boundaries of the town.

* Exodus 16:29
** A cubit is 21.85 inches. In the “Mishneh Torah” Maimonides states that by Scriptural law we may go twelve miles in any direction beyond the boundaries of the town; by ordinance, however, a “Sabbath Journey” is limited to two thousand cubits (Zmanim Hilchoth Shabbath XXVII, 1)
