DAY 573: Reflecting On All That We Had Done

Dear Hevreh,

One of the things I love about our Friday Night service is that in the midst of all the praying and teaching, we take a moment to check in with each other to see how our week has been. I love it because it gives us a chance to be reflective when most of the week we are too active to fully appreciate and realize what we are doing.

It’s pretty normal to not find time during the week to be reflective. Just ask God. On occasion God reflected during creation that what God created that day “was good,” but it wasn’t until the end of the sixth day – Friday night – that God looked back “on all that God had done and saw that it was very good.”

So let’s follow in God’s footsteps and spend tonight, Friday night, the beginning of Shabbat, reflecting on all that we had done this week to make it (hopefully) a good week.

Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Ari Saks
