What does your Friday night look like?
There is an old story about the angels we welcome with Shalom Aleichem. One is friendly, one not so much. If the table is set for Shabbat, the songs are sung and the meal is shared, the bad angel must say Amen to the good angels prayer that next week will be the same.
If nothing is set and Shabbat is ignored, the good angel must say amen to the icky angel's prayer that next week will look the same.
This past Shabbat we had a lovely dinner and services at Congregation Agudas Israel.
In August we will have Luau Shabbat with our friends at the JCC and TBJ. In September, all will be invited to the rabbi's backyard for a festive Shabbat dinner. I pray you can join us!
