Jersusalem on a Friday Evening

2014-01-03_001We found ourselves in the Old City on a Friday evening.  Without realizing it, we were about to witness an ancient and beautiful tradition – the bringing in of Shabbat.  As a Christian many Jewish traditions are foggy to me.  But after witnessing this paradoxical event – full of reverence, fun, joy, community and solitude for some – I was blown away.  Such a reverence for the Wall, and the Sabbath – we stayed all evening.
