The assignment for group Bet was to make Kiddush with friends at some point over Shabbat.
It was a great experience for me because I know that the only times I make Kiddush on Shabbat are when I'm working at a Jewish event, or when I'm at my parents house for Shabbat dinner. It was a great experience because this is my first weekend back in San Diego after a long summer working at a Jewish summer camp. I ended up making plans for Shabbat dinner and lunch on Saturday with some old friends I hadn't seen all summer. It was really nice celebrating shabbat when it wasn't forced and without students. I know that this blog is going to help me keep that in mind over the course of these next 10 weeks and be able to really celebrate shabbat. Shavuah Tov
