We got ready for Shabbat and headed back to the old city where we were in for a big surprise. Rav Yom Tov Glaser, a former surfer and present day Chassid and musician set the tone for Shabbos with his amazing concert. He had us up on our feet singing and dancing our way into Shabbat. We could only ask for more.
As the spirit of Shabbos entered our hearts, we each received a gift of a beautiful woman’s Siddur from TORCH. (Thank you TORCH!). We used our Siddurim to welcome in the Shabbat with candle-lighting and songs at the Kotel. What an amazing feeling- the holiest day- Shabbos- at the holiest place!! We ate dinner under the stars, on the rooftop in the Old City! Rabbi Motty Berger and his family joined us for the meal. The highlight of the meal (it’s hard to pick just one!) was sharing our meal with the lone soldiers- young men and women from around the world who have separated from their families to move to Israel and serve their country and home, Israel. What an honor for us!
