The Friday night meal is a special time for friends and family to be together and celebrate the Shabbat spirit. We sing zemirot — traditional Shabbat songs — and share words of Torah. Before Shabbat, prepare something about the Torah portion to say at the table.'s parshah section is a good place to start. Print out a story to read together. Make sure your table is imbued with the spirit of Shabbat and the beauty of Judaism.
