These are the things that no one has probably thought to tell you about celebrating Shabbat in the Reform movement. You’ll be glad to know them. Believe me.
- When you go to your first Shabbat dinner with a family with a family member who already is, or is studying to be a rabbi, do not feel mortified to discover there is more to Shabbat blessings and ritual than you ever dreamed. Also, do not let it upset you enough that you don’t celebrate Shabbat in your own home for several months.
