Many of us are coming from very diverse backgrounds, and thoughts concerning Shabbat observance. Because of this, both The Yahad of East Tennessee and Vero Yahad feel the need to put in place guidelines that will bring unity and stability during our holy convocation.
1. As The Yahad of East Tennessee will be the host, we are therefore asking that there be no cooking, buying and selling, nor laborious work done on either The Holy Days or weekly Shabbat. If someone wants to go off campus during this time, and engage in these activities we are all adults; it’s between them and YHWH. We only ask that these things are not done in, and around the lodge area.
2. Many will have booths selling different items. We are asking that all buying and selling cease at sundown prior to The Holy Days, and weekly Shabbat. These activities may resume after the following sundown.
3. Out of respect for the Shabbat, we ask that everyone refrains from the watching of sports such as college football. Many of us guys love the sport, but we all know that YHWH comes first. We can find out the scores after sundown.
