Having a #hashtag #shabbat #outofcontrolrabbi #smilestyle
Hashtag Fun! Did you know the history of the hashtag was an accident? It simply started by typing the number sign to actually represent only a number sign. However, because tweets on Twitter can go Viral, the number sign hashtag became the tweet of pop culture. What was once a simple typing addition has now built into comedy, conversations, roasts and even Shabbat. Rabbi Andrea had a little fun to bring light …to Shabbat. Shabbat is beautiful and so simply to observe in a Reform Judaism type way. Five minutes into your evening to light the candles, say the blessing over the wine and the Challah bread. Is is more that Shabbat is a holy day and scares most of us away. It is not part of the lifestyle. There is a reason for the title, ‘The Chosen People.’ To stop, focus, remember and for that brief five minutes in your evening, slow down and enjoy what has been given as a gift. So, if it takes Social Media Hashtag Fun to bring the joy, even for the moment, this #outofcontrolrabbi ( #smiles ) will #shabbat in a #funway.
