I am Jewish and have Jewish parents and grandparents. Until I was 27, I had never heard of Shabbat. When I first heard of Shabbat, I thought it was on Sundays and was only for nuns. After experiencing Shabbat in other people’s homes, I decided to learn to light Shabbat candles and keep Shabbat. I need Shabbat so much. I work incredibly hard for six days and six nights because I love to conquer the world of doing. Yet, when Shabbat comes, I light a candle for each of my five kids, one son-in-law and two grandsons. I pray deeply for each of them to be healthy, marry nice Jewish spouses, have lots of Jewish kids and grandkids. And then I pray for all the Jewish people in the whole world to know, love and keep Shabbat because it’s never too late to light Shabbat candles and keep Shabbat!
