I was introduced to practice of shabbat during my time at Livnot. It has been the ABSOLUTE GREATEST LIFELONG GIFT that anyone has ever given to me. I am the kind of person who is deeply nourished by “being”, and so it is a challenge to live in a culture dominated by “doing”.
When I discovered shabbat, this island of being once every 7 days, my life was transformed on the deepest of levels, brought more into into balance.
It has been 20 years since I did Livnot. I have celebrated shabbat every week since then. My experience of it changes and deepens with time. Now I have the honor of sharing it with my husband and my children. I can’t imagine my life without it. I am forever grateful.
