Shabbat at Home

Can’t make it into synagogue for Shabbat services? Don’t worry! Shabbat has long been a “home ritual” in Judaism as well.

While Reform Jews typically do not keep shomer Shabbos (a strict observance of Shabbat rules, such as not driving or using electricity), Shabbat has come to be a meaningful time for families to spend time together. At the very least, Shabbat should be a time to do something different than the rest of the week. Entrances to the holy and the spiritual are everywhere!

Shabbat Shalom!
