I’m actually not Jewish but I am very curious about Shabbat after a recent encounter I had and would like to learn from you guys, the Jewish community of Reddit.
So I live in an apartment complex, and my neighbor two doors down, whom I don’t know too well, is Jewish. He and his family seem to be friendly and lovely people. However, today, which i believe is Shabbat, my neighbor came over to my door and gave me a nice book as a gift and prayed for me. I thought that was very thoughtful of him. My question is, is this normal during Shabbat? I really am not too familiar with Judaism or Jewish practices so I would love for you guys to help shed light on this topic for me.
