Shabbat Shalom from CAARI

Just enjoying the sunshine and lovely weather on this Shabbat.  Thinking of our friends and relatives in snowy Canada and the North East!

Well, another Shabbat has come and gone, for some it is their last Shabbat in Israel.  Now, they have to make sure all their shopping is done.  I am sure the craft market at Nachalot Benyamin will miss them.  We will miss them too!
Shabbat is so special here in Israel.  Some go to shul as they do back home.  some just relax and, on a nice sunny warm day, go the beach. Many times at our hotel, people with their extended families come and spend the weekend, Usually with lots of cute children and lovely babies, usually a little noisy, but that is what children do. their weekend consists of Friday night dinner, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and they leave after Shabbat is over.  That’s when peace descends the hotel!  But that is ok, when in Israel we do as Israelis do. 
As for the CAARI group, we have our Shabbat Dinner together, then an Oneg Shabbat where we sing some songs, talk about our experiences, or we might have a topic for discussions.  They are never dull as we have as many opinions as we have participants. 
Shavua tov – which means – good week!  So, we go on.
