Shabbat Shalom

Every Friday as Jews prepare for Shabbat, the People of the Book on Facebook and Twitter, regardless of religious affiliation, are known to post Shabbat greetings. Selfies, table photos, and links to favorite commentators are popular Erev Shabbos post material.

While the hashtag is as new as social media, sharing Shabbos greetings is as old as creation itself. #ShabbatShalom trends much higher than #shabbat. Quickly scan #shabbatshalom on Twitter week by week and you’ll see similar people, motifs, and messages appear every Friday.
