Every Shabbat, doors will open wide for you to experience a
Shabbat meal with friendly families in Jerusalem. You get to meet new people, enjoy Shabbat songs, learn about family traditions and customs first hand and, of course, partake in a tasty Shabbat meal. You can ask to be with a family that speaks English, French or any other language.
You can even ask to be with a family from your or your parents’
birthplace. I myself was a guest several times at a family that took
part in the Heritage House Hospitality program. It was a pleasure to meet the family. They were friendly and very warm.
As for etiquette, just be yourself.
