I honestly am so grateful for Shabbat at the end of a non stop week. I literally count down, and it started last night making Challah. The kids and I will braid it today, and enjoy it more than ever especially after Pesach.
My children love having guests every Friday night, and I love that there are no devices or electronics to get in the way of quality interactions. Saturday mornings are a creative play time for my kids, and I never want that to end.
Turning off the world in 10 hours!
Yesterday we talked about the atrocities of #Holocaust. Today, let me give you some hope. 100 years ago Hebrew was a dead language. Outside reading the prayers, no one spoke the language. This morning, I drove my kids to their Jewish Day School at Wise. As I entered the long driveway, I was greeted by the Israeli flags waiving in the wind beneath the American flag flying high. As I drove up further, I heard Hebrew music blasted all over campus in preparation for Shabbat and the teachers and rabbis were dancing with the students and greeting them in Hebrew. We may be small in numbers, but not in spirit. Hebrew, Israel, Torah, Jewish spirit is alive and well. A tiny light can break massive darkness and the proper answer to the night is not to curse the darkness but to shine a light. Be the light my friends. Be proud of your Jewish heritage. Teach your children when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way… #ShemaYisrael. #ShabbatShalom #AmYisrealChai
