Daf Yomi - Yoma 52 - Shabbos Kodesh

The Gemara states that the king Yoshiyahu hid the Aron towards the end of the First Bais HaMikdash era. It is hard to imagine how one could hide an article like the Aron that contained so much sanctity. Yet, every week people who are unaware of the holiness of Shabbos, so to speak conceal the sanctity of Shabbos. The sanctity of Shabbos should be palpable on the streets of our neighborhoods, as a Torah observant Jew should dress appropriately for Shabbos and even the way one walks should be in accordance with the holiness of Shabbos. Shabbos is not a time for playing ball and exercising. HaShem gave us Shabbos as a day of rest, which is meant to be a time to study Torah and educate others about the sanctity of Shabbos and Jewish life.
