What should we answer to a Jew, when he tells us: "שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם (Shabbat Shalom)"?

  • The traditional greeting among Jews is shalom aleichem, peace unto you; to which the response is aleichem shalom, to you, peace. When Jews say “Shabbat shalom – Sabbath peace” to family and friends after a draining work week, they mean far more than “have a peaceful and restful day.” What they are really saying is: May you be restored to wholeness on the blessed Sabbath! – Ahmed Feb 11 '19 at 11:32
