    Really nice! I love the soundtrack as well. Showed this to my five year old (who has lots of questions about shabbes) and she seemed to ‘get it’– as usual beautifully done, Allison.

    Clear and to the point. A great thing is leaving the audience with a next step, namely Shabbat.com. Nice job.

    Hi Allison
    I just came across your jew in the city series
    kol ha kavod to u for making judasim SO hands on and explaining all the issues involved so succintly and real
    On ur shabbat video ,u mentioned that
    ‘shabbat is to recharge ur batteries for the rest of the week”
    i feel that shabbat is a time to commune with ur family ,to commune with g-d, to commune with ur own growth, to realize what u are about ,what Gd is about etc
    and lastly it is to recharge ur batteries for the coming week
    Once again, kol hakavod to u
    Cheri Belzberg, from Israel 🙂

    Video is informative but the cc text was not done by anyone Jewish and the words they use make it very confusing.
