There is a mystical tradition that on Shabbat each person has a neshama yeteirah, an extra soul, who joins them on Friday night during Kabbalat Shabbat and leaves on Saturday with havdalah. Take a moment to focus yourself inward and try to find the neshama yeteirah expanding your soul, growing and taking you to a new and different place, emotionally and spirituall.

The Kabbalat Shabbat service is about to come to an end, followed immediately by a special version of the evening service, ma'ariv. We close on themes of gratitude, and how good it feels to show gratitude. What do you feel grateful for this week?
