More about Saturn and Shabbat
The planetary body Saturn, in Hebrew called Shabbatai, comes from the three-letter Hebrew root for Shabbat. Saturn (or Shabbatai) was the seventh planetary body known to the ancient Jews. Seven is, of course, a special number of rest and is important in Jewish numerology.
