It’s almost Shabbos and we look around at the hustle and bustle of our preparations.
Kids are mixing up some yummy delicacies in the kitchen, music is playing, table is set and the feeling of Shabbos is in the air.
Now, how does the ‘feeling’ of Shabbos come to be? What really creates this energy in the room, this team of players working towards a goal of peace and serenity…what really infuses the air with the Erev Shabbos power?
Giving ourselves the moment to tap into how G-d created the world and how at every moment He is infusing life into each and every being and substance, lends to a humbling experience.
Bringing these experiences into our own life and into tangible expressions of being Jewish and creating a Jewish home, is the spark that warms us and those around us.
It transforms the energy in our home to the ‘feeling’ that Shabbos is coming, this is a special time, a holy time.
So try it. Set your table with a white tablecloth, place your candles in the middle. Keep Judaism centered. Centered in your life.
Indulge in the spirit of Shabbos.
Join us by lighting the Shabbos candles tonight at 7:03pm and bring added light into our world.
Wishing you and yours peace, serenity and a beautiful Shabbos!
