What Rekindle Shabbat means to our families:
“We have been meaning to start a Shabbat routine in our home. With the starter kit and prayers, we’ve been able to make our Friday nights special for our family. It’s been a key element of introducing our son to Judaism.”
-Ashley Serotta, South Hamilton
“My husband is Jewish, yet does not practice his faith. This was a way for me to learn about his heritage and pass it on to his/our children. We learned the Hebrew words and about the special traditions involved with Shabbat.”
-Danielle Panneton, Middleton
“We always celebrated Shabbat, but this made it more likely that we would invite another family over.”
-David Kaufman, Lynnfield
“Rekindle Shabbat got our family to come closer together in enjoyment of our Jewish beliefs.”
-Faina Makhler, Salem
“Rekindle Shabbat helped us to meet and connect with other young Jewish families we might not have otherwise met. It’s a tradition our family looks forward to and it’s great to see the kids in our group grow up together with it, too.
-Keiko Zoll, Salem
“Rekindle Shabbat helps my blended family learn about the meaning of Shabbat and carry on the tradition in an easy way. Having a buddy family also keeps us accountable to celebrating consistently.”
-Sarah Tugender, Danvers
“My teenagers are so happy to hear our Rekindle night is coming up, they really enjoy it so much. It’s a time for us to put everything else aside, and just relax, and talk about what we are thankful for and be happy our week is completed.”
-Linda Goodspeed, Beverly
