Do you know G-d is an organizer, creating the world in six days out of chaos? Then on the seventh day, G-d rested. We’ll be taking a look at texts about the meaning of Shabbat and some suggestions for organizing Shabbat in the time of COVID. We’ll cover what it means to prepare, the specialness of Shabbat, being a host even virtually, and time.

A Chicago native, Elesheva was happy to bring her professional organizing business, Soloff Space Solutions, back home after 10 years in Boston. She’s an active member of Mishkan and AES/Rose Crown Minyan and is proud to co-chair AES’s Kehillah Kedosha, which promotes inclusion and access for people with disabilities and their families at AES services, programs and life cycle events. Elesheva got her Jewish exposure via home life, Solomon Schechter Day School, Camp Ramah, UofM Hillel, Avodah and from various amazing Jewish educators. While Chicago is home, Elesheva visits Boston to see clients from time to time. When working with her clients in Boston, she often spends shabbat with Shira and her family.
Dr. Shira Fischer
During the day, Shira Fischer is a physician policy researcher at the RAND Corporation. Outside of work, she is involved in local politics and in the Jewish community. She has been an adult Jewish educator for years, including teaching at Limmud, the Melton School of Adult Jewish Learning, and her local community, currently Washington Square Minyan in Brookline, MA, and has been involved in a number of innovative Jewish learning programs and egalitarian minyanim. She served as an AJWS D’var Tzedek Fellow and is also an avid Torah reader (or was, back when she went to shul pre-COVID). Her home is currently a mess, which she at least partially blames on the 3 young people who inhabit it with her, but is less of a mess than it would have been if it weren’t for her friend Elesheva’s advice.
