This past week, we went to the Old City Jewish Center for shabbat dinner and it was lovely. My family doesn’t normally (or ever) have shabbat dinners so I love the opportunity to experience it with others. It wasn’t even the religious aspect that most appealed to me. I loved the idea of sitting down for a meal and bringing together a mix of friends and strangers to form a new community. Have you done anything recently that was outside of your comfort zone? On that note, have a great week and enjoy this week’s Sunday Edit links!
