Jewish Treats therefore presents five things that you can do during the work week to prepare for Shabbat:
Monday--Dry Cleaning - Sounds mundane, but it is customary to wear nicer clothes in honor of Shabbat. Finding stains on Thursday can add unnecessary stress to the end of the week.
Tuesday--Invite Guests/Make Plans* - Whether you plan to host or to be hosted, it’s good to make arrangements early in the week.
Wednesday--Food - Shopping on Wednesday leaves ample time for special Shabbat food preparation.
Thursday--Parasha Prep - Take a few minutes to review the week’sparasha (Torah portion) so that you will have an interesting D’var Torah to share at the Shabbat table.
Friday--Table Setting - Set the table early in the day so that the aura of Shabbat is apparent to all who enter.
*Look ahead to March 3, 2017, and make plans to attend Shabbat Across America and Canada at a location near you.
