    A really great book about Shabbat in modern Jewish homes, Jacobz is lighthearted, enthusiastic, and encouraging.This book is excellent about offering practical advice like recipes, multitasking lists, and all the necessary transliterated blessings, while also sprinkling bits and pieces of deeper Jewish theology like the duality of Sabbath and its importance as a cultural cornerstone I also really appreciated Jacobs own Parashat notes they hit all the right points, made me really think, and in A really great book about Shabbat in modern Jewish homes, Jacobz is lighthearted, enthusiastic, and encouraging.This book is excellent about offering practical advice like recipes, multitasking lists, and all the necessary transliterated blessings, while also sprinkling bits and pieces of deeper Jewish theology like the duality of Sabbath and its importance as a cultural cornerstone I also really appreciated Jacobs own Parashat notes they hit all the right points, made me really think, and included questions appropriate for all ages I took quite a few of my own notes It also has a great biblography for further reading on Jewish life and homemaking, recipes, theology, Shabbat and others.Some readers may object to her unorthodox suggestions like having Shabbat whenever the family can get together on Friday night, not necessarily eighteen minutes before sunset but others will appreciate her for it Also, this is not an advanced text so if you already have your own standard traditions this likely won t add too much However, I ve been doing a version of Shabbat for a year and still found new information so there are some unique pieces

About the Author: Meredith L. Jacobs

Jewish Mom's Epub â from Publisher s WeeklySuburban Mom Offers Fun Way into Sabbath Observanceby David The Modern eBook Ç Klinghoffer, Religion BookLineFebruary , For most American Jews, Sabbath observance including the once Modern Jewish Mom's eBook ✓ cherished Friday night Sabbath meal largely went out the window in the th century Meredith L Jacobs would like to help restore the lost institution with a sprightly new book, The Modern Jewish Mom s Guide to Shabbat Connect and Celebrate Bring Your Family Together with the Friday Night Meal HarperCollins, FebA suburban Maryland wife and mother, Jacobs grew up without traditional Sabbath observances, and says of herself even now, I m not shomer Shabbos meaning Sabbath observant but in the book I talk about how theI learn, theI want to do in embracing other Jewish traditionsJacobs finds meaning in the link the Sabbath gives her with the Jewish people, past and future When she lights Sabbath candles on Friday night, I feel connected to every Jewish woman who has ever been and will ever be, she saidThe book includes chapters on creating the right Sabbath mood, another on recipes, along with a selection of discussion topics for the family based on the weekly Torah readingThat may sound like serious stuff, but neither Jacobs nor her publisher wanted to create another somber Judaica title It s really fun It s really cute, said Jacobs of the book s cheerful, colorful packaging I can t wait to see it on the Judaism shelf with all those brown and black covers It s hot pink And a book, perhaps, with an appeal even outside the Jewish community In our first meeting with her, I remember thinking, I wish I was Jewish because this sounds terrific, recalled Jennifer Hart, v p and associate publisher for Harper Paperbacks She said the book will publish initially with a , copy printing, bolstered with targeted advertising to Jewish publications and trifold author business cards including a Jewish Sabbath prayerIt s not unthinkable that the book could interest Christian readers looking for ways to incorporate Jewish customs into their spiritual lives a significant phenomenon in some Christian circles.
