The majority of people who celebrate Shabbat are white and Jewish. However, black comedians Teddy Ray and Slink Johnson try to get into the Shabbat mood. It's part of a series called "For the First Time."
Other episodes in the series are "Black People Celebrate Hanukkah For the First Time", "Black People Try Jewish Food For the First Time.", and "White People Go to a Black BBQ For the First Time."
In this video the comedians join Rabbi-in-Training Lee Epstein and Hebrew tutor Jamie Mittleman in encountering a kippah, kiddush, and challah as they celebrate Shabbat for the first time.
Enjoy and Shabbat Shalom.
