How do you and your family celebrate Sabbath?

I myself attend reform synagogue during Saturday morning, have Sabbath lunch at the temple and then do some shopping or walk around the park until Sabbath dinner. I do drive, shop and have no restriction on Shabbos.

Shabbat Shalom

I presume you believe in "Yawed"~? I know of a few folks like this and we have had a congregation in our city which has now closed. I was invited, but never went. When I was in Florida, I found a couple of them. They advertised one and I went there that, and they had no services that night. Found another and talked to someone on the phone and when I got there, there was no one there. I was curious to the prayers that they do and mostly if they have a Torah and ark that are part of the prayer worship. Well, does the one you attend have a Torah as part of the services~?

As far as Sabbath goes, I go to services and then I come home. I have no family, except my dog that I consider my family. I socialize with people there but nothing more.

First, please try to use one word instead of the three. In my view the correct word is Shabbat. The way you are following Shabbat is known as secular. Its ok and long as you understand what the day is and how it's supposed to be different from other days. In my personal view its a day of rest. From Friday evening to Saturday night I do not work or do any physical projects around the home. I do not drive thus I do not go out and shop. I will go walk my property with my dogs. My meals are usually cold and I've wired a switch to my frig so the light won't come on when I open the door. My iPad is set to shuffle so it plays all night and all day. My computer is on and its voice controlled so I do use it as in my personal opinion the spark was done before Shabbat started. But I do not do anything work related (unless its an emergency - I work in IT) on it nor do I do any shopping on it. Its my reading material and I only read items that are restful in nature. As for washing, the tub is kept filled with water and I use that water as needed to freshen up and if it matters to anyone, I have a two handled cup.

Are you referring to me or the original poster~? What 3 words, I don't follow you~?


Edit: I think I depends where you live in the USA, because here we say "Sabbath or Shabbos" to Good Shabbos"

The OP

Sabbath, Shabbos, Shabbat.


FYI:
Sabbath is a descriptor so its use would be The Sabbath.

Shabbos is the Yiddish version of the Hebrew word Shabbat. Shabbos is primary used by American Ashkenazi Jews but in Israel its only used by the Haredi. In Hebrew the word Shabbat ends with a T sound (the letter is Tav). Some Yiddish speakers take it a step further and also convert a Tet into a S sound. There is one user here who instead of saying Kotel (Wailing Wall), says Kosel

The OP says, "Shabbat Shalom", so is this only said in the Reform or do other sects says this~? Just curious.

No. It depends on the area you're in. Currently 99% of the people I know around the world say Shabbat Shalom and they are anywhere in between Reform and Orthodox. The only times I hear Gut Shabbos(es) is when I go to NY or to FL.

Our synagogues looks exactly like any other.

What do you think we study? Even Christians read from the Old Testament, a.k.a Hebrew Bible.
Jesus himself read and taught from the Torah, and Messianic Jews follow Jesus, the Messiah.
