heading into an amazing shabbat
We just left Tzfat and are now entering into our second Shabbat in Israel. I never fully kept Shabbat at home, turning off technology, reflecting from within. Beeing in Israel, I have began to keepo more of Shabbat and use the time to just be. It is an amazing experience to have one day a week where I do not have to be connected. Being in Israel has changed what it means to be Jewish. It is so much more than just keeping Shabbat, Kosher, and going to temple for the holidays. Being Jewish means being a good person, helping others when I can, and spending time with the people I love, giving them my time for one whole day placing my focus on them instead of my e-mail, facebook, or other distractions.
