Non-Jewish atheist here, kinda had a few traditions sprung on me recently that I just rolled with out of respect, but was a bit confused by the whole scenario and didn’t want to prove at the time. There was only one Jewish person present (the host) in a small group of people, so there obviously wasn’t an issue including others as far as they were concerned but seemed odd to me for something religious like that.
Can observing Shabbat be purely cultural for some people, or would you only do so if practicing?
