Sweet 16

Written by OneTable’s Resident Rabbi, Jessica Minnen

As we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome 2017, Friday night is our chance to let go of the week that was, or in this case the year that was. Shabbat dinner is about what’s possible. In Jewish tradition we call this possibility olam ha’ba, the world to come.

Olam ha’ba isn’t about some unattainable dream. It’s the world we work for every week — a world that is good and just and safe. On Friday night we come together to celebrate that work, and the possibility of goodness that is its result.
