Get into Shabbat

There I was with 20 other young Jewish people who had never done Shabbat before. My first impression, and it’s what I remember till this day, is that I witnessed true peace and serenity in the home. The wife and husband were getting along and the children were so respectful to their parents. I felt intuitively that this was the true path; inside myself I wanted this type of life one day.

At this time in my life I also began to play with the thoughts of free will. Often I would ponder the evil atrocities committed by the Nazi regime. Although at the time I had no real answer, I came to the conclusion that if man can have such potential for evil then man can have the same potential for good. I wanted to live my life to be good. I just didn’t know how or what to do.

This is an excerpt from my new book Not A Lone Soldier, due out this Fall. Take control of the wheel and make this world good. It needs YOU!
