We are commanded to Remember Shabbat and Amalek. When we remember Shabbat we become partners with God in Creation, and are able to access His Torah on a deeper level, therefore empowered to battle the most dangerous enemy: Amalek. It is only throug Remembering Shabbat that we will fulfill the Mitzvah to Remember Amalek and destroy their influence on the world. (Pardes Mordechai – Zachor)
