Shabbat is almost here

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for Shabbat. This week leaves me anxious and exhausted, my soul yearns to be refreshed. This week in the Torah we read, “The People of Israel shall guard Shabbat, observing Shabbat throughout the ages as a sign of the special relationship, the covenant, for all time,” (Ex. 31:16). On the Shabbat may our souls be refreshed and renewed. May we take lots of healthy breaths. May we observe physical distancing from the people that we encounter and great them, instead, with words of warmth and welcome. May we remember our blessings and express gratitude to God for them today and every day. May we know rest and renewal. Shabbat Shalom.
