Shabbat At Home

Shabbat-at-Home-websiteAt Temple Beth Israel see ourselves as a community of meaning, charged with the responsibility of helping each other deepen the purpose we find in our lives.

On our better days, we do this by following the lessons of our tradition – by challenging each other to consider the way in which we go about our daily tasks and the way in which we interact with the world around us.

Over the last few years you have heard my colleagues and I talk a lot about our core values – the principles and practices that really matter in life. Chief amongst these values has been the observance of Shabbat which have fostered though our rejuvenated services, the innovation of Pop-Up Shabbat and the re-conception of our Tot Shabbat and Family Shabbat experiences.

Now we want to bring that same energy and effort into you own homes with this Shabbat At Home booklet which we are gifting it to every home in our congregations as part of our 85th Anniversary celebrations.

It has been has been said that “more than the Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews.” More than any single practice, Shabbat is the institution that has kept us Jewish. It has set us apart, it has sustained us, it has made us holy.

Our hope is that this new resource will help you, your family and friends create and enhance your own Shabbat experiences.
