                                  Answer:
   
   Judaism doesn't make much distinction between the days of the week,
   except for Shabbat. In fact, the days of the week are called Yom
   Rishon, Yom Sheini... (i.e., 1st day, 2nd day, ....), and then
   Shabbat. The only philosophical oddity is that not only is day 7
   called "Shabbat", but each day is "of the Shabbat". In other words,
   "the first day" (Sunday) is liturgically called "yom rishon beshabbat"
   when introducing the day's psalm.
