Here's To Fewer Lifeboats

One of our resolutions for 2010 (and believe me there are MANY) is to share our Friday night shabbat dinners with our friends. Jewish, not Jewish. We don't care. All you need to do is eat, drink and be willing to share in our little social experiment we like to call "A Year (Or More) of Shabbats." This blog will chronicle our (and your) experience.

Since returning from Israel in 2006 (that is a story for another blog) we have been celebrating shabbat as a family each Friday on a fairly regular basis -- at least what I consider to be regular when you have two kids, careers and all the craziness that ensues. In our most challenging times (and believe me there have been MANY), our dinners have served as a "lifeboat" that helps ferry us out of troubled waters -- even if just for a night. In joyous times the dinners are a celebration of all that is precious in our life.

Here's to hoping that 2010 is filled with more celebrations and fewer lifeboats.
