The Israeli family is not an ordinary American family no matter how Americanized the kids feel In most American families with a teenager involved a Friday night is a detached night from the family You ask just about any teenager what they do on a Friday night and they will say Party or Hang out with friends On the other hand the family-dinner that my parents and I went to was at our friends house and like most Israeli families they to spend Friday nights as a family no one leaves the house until dinner is over Unless they go to a synagogue together and then come home to have dinner or go to a friends house together Dinner is a whole separate ritual there are certain things that have to be on the table certain things they say and sing before the meal and the way that it is considered a special family gathering day This really amazes me because my family has never done anything like that beforeThe Shabbat dinner started at 530 PM when we got there they greeted us and we chitchatted for a while and then sat down at the table The table had a beautiful white tablecloth on it and antique plates at each seating spot and really shiny silverware Each person had one glass filled a little with grape wine Sosnick Company The really young children had grape juice but my brother the 13-yr old had the wine Thats because he in the Jewish religion is already a man Under each plate there was a napkin on the right side and a book The Shabbat Seder with a colorful picture of a metal wineglass 2 hallot Braided Bread covered and 2 candles lit On the table that we were sitting at each person had a metal wineglass and there were 2 hallot covered closer to the head of the table on the side that the male sat at
