On Friday morning, the Forward received a pre-shabbos greeting in fluent Yiddish from an Israeli soldier.

In apparently good spirits, the soldier displays a kugel that he received for shabbos. He then wishes everyone “a gutn shabes mit a sakh ruikeyt un nakhes” — a good shabbos with peace of mind and joy.
