Lots of changes happening in my life. Most of which I can’t tell the inter-verse just yet. What I can tell you is I’m going to start half doing the Jewish tradition of unplugging on Friday nights. The real Jews do it for 24 hours. I’ll start with Friday nights. If you’re wondering why I haven’t communicated with you on Friday after sundown it’s because my phone is on airplane mode.
My parents who are agnostic, think I’ve become a fanatical Jew, just because I want to light the candles at sunset. I still eat shrimp, I haven’t picked up the Torah and have no desire to attend synagogue. This one little ritual is about the only connection I have to the religion I was born into.
This Friday I’m co-hosting a Shabbat candle lighting gathering. I invite you to join us, email firstname.lastname@example.org for location details.
