Natalie Solomon – Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel

I kept Shabbat in it’s entirety according to Halachka for the 2nd time in my life. I was all alone at home as I was super sick and not able to go to any of the wonderful events I had been helping to plan. It was very hard to be alone and isolated, but, I was comforted in knowing that there were literally a million people together around the world, and, even though I was physically home alone, I was spiritually together with my People in keeping these mitzvot. Thank you to Chief Rabbi Goldstein for asking me to give this a try. I may not do this every Shabbat, but it definitely is a journey and this was an important stop along the way.
