*This “Shabbat Shalom” series is about sharing inspiring and supportive ideas with you on Thursday before Shabbat. Please note that Jewish Food Hero is not making a recommendation to “do” these activities during Shabbat. Rather the post is shared in the spirit of giving you nourishing resources before Shabbat that they may intentionally bring into your life at the right moment.
