Lucky Friday The 13th....

Why is Friday the 13th a lucky day for Jews?

And also, note the following, from a now-defunct website for an Israeli flower distributor:

In Israel, Friday the 13th is considered to be an unusually lucky day.

In Judaism, Friday is a very special day because the Sabbath begins on Friday evening and because the Bible mentions that God noted that his creations on this day were very good.

Moreover, the number 13 has always had a special lucky significance to Judaism. A few examples:

1. The Bar Mitzva is held at age 13.
2. There are 13 months in the Hebrew lunar calendar.
3. The Bible lists 13 attributes of God.
4. There are 613 commandments.
