Around the Shabbat Table Campaign Elevating the People and the World Around You!
The Shabbat meal is a wonderful opportunity to strengthen our families, community and connection to G-d. The Around the Shabbat Table Campaign encourages each family to include three elements at their meal: 1. Share a Torah Insight 2. Sing a Jewish Song 3. Refrain from Gossip-Celebrate Positive Speech
Suggested Torah topic for your Shabbat table: Eventually, in the course of human history, someone inevitably would have eaten from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, precipitating humanity's expulsion from the Garden of Eden. Why would G-d have wanted us to leave paradise? What might Adam and Eve have been thinking as they left the Garden of Eden? Shabbat Shalom Hospital Packages are sponsored by: The Linda Beson Nursing Education Fund.
