We're heading into our first Shabbat back home after spending a month of holidays in Jerusalem. It's been a great month and we've enjoyed sharing some tastes of this great city with you.
We're working our way back to our mix of jokes, music, fun, unusual news items, Jewish Traces in Unexpected Places and Unexpected Traces in Jewish Places, but with Shabbat starting tonight, we'll share just one more Taste of Jerusalem.
This is a taste of Kabbalat Shabbat, not the usual Friday night evening service, but a bonus afternoon musical pre-Shabbat service that's been taking place each week at First Station Jerusalem, the outdoor mall, event and dining center that opened in 2013.
Residents and tourists alike come here to celebrate a musical welcome to Shabbat. For the secular population, it's their Shabbat experience, and for the observant it's a pleasant way to set the stage for traditional services and Shabbat dinner at nightfall.
