My First Shabbos

This weekend was my first time keeping Shabbos on my own. It just feels right. Keeping the Shabbos is easy in this environment, with the Chabad House right on campus. It'll be harder at home; we'll see what happens. In Brooklyn it'll be easier, especially if I end up in Crown Heights.

Rabbi Adelman seemed especially pleased that I decided I want to keep Shabbos from now on. Everyone I told was definitely supportive, but I think Rabbi Simcha and Rabbi Adelman were perhaps even proud of me. I made them hug me goodbye on my way out, after havdallah. Sender was standing right there, so I hugged him too. I like that most of these guys are openly affectionate. It's a warm feeling.
