The 7 days of creation follows the Menorah pattern, with 3 paired units (= 6) and the 7th set apart. The 7th day of creation stands alone, unique in many ways qualifying it as the central pillar of the Menorah.
1) It is the only day that God blessed and sanctified.
2) It is the only day God did no creative work.
3) It is the only day that does not have a defined end because nothing was finished on that day, or begun the next day.
Hope that helps
