Noam Zion and Shawn Fields-Meyer do for Shabbat what Noam did for Passover in A Different Night — treat each component, from preparation to havdalah, in loving detail.
Each section starts with basics: instructions, brachot, everything translated, transliterated, and explained. But then there is more: a section for beginners, a section for parents, a section of reflections (kavanot), a section of guidelines from the tradition, ideas that will add to anyone’s oneg.
And all the way through . . . lots of art and stories from every corner of the Jewish world.
This book is widely used in rabbi's classes and conversion courses. It belongs in your library, or that of someone you love.
Each book ships with a “Shabbat Host Guide” by Rabbi Dov Gartenberg.
