Question for “pulpit” rabbis and/or hazzans: how do you feel about Shabbat and Yom Tov being in a certain sense your biggest work days?

Borrowing the “pulpit” term because I want to differentiate from a rabbi who is principally a teacher, law decider, etc. I’m talking about rabbis who lead a synagogue community for a living.

I appreciate that the tasks one does in this don’t meet the actual meaning of the prohibited labour, but I’ve been thinking about how for some rabbis and hazzans, shabbat and Yom Tov are often the days you are really on, probably the most strenuous and important day of your work week.

How has this changed your Shabbat experience?
