What Else She Said

I think that is also a sign of the times. There is a reversal back to observing Shabbat and Jewish ritual and celebrating holidays, holidays that I never even heard of as a kid. And we really try to bring joy to a lot of the holidays. As a family we do a huge Sukkoth party and invite all of our friends and family and neighbors and have hundreds of people here to celebrate Sukkot every year.... I don't think it was nearly as much in my parent's consciousness as it is in this generation. And I think it has been a really big deal to my kids. I think there were points when they resented it, "What do you mean that we have to be home for Shabbat." But I think they really loved the fact that they could invite their friends for Shabbat anytime they wanted and know that they were always welcome and that it was always here.
