Hi,

Here more doubts with text I have to write, please tell if it's correct. questions after my text.

Every Shabbat Yaniv opens his house to every Jew and Israeli who is in the region for a warm and traditional Sabbath's meal with a kiddush in a magical Jewish atmosphere filled with laughter, joy, new acquaintances, words of Torah, games, abundant food and even a place to sleep.


1. is that accepted to write "opens his house"? where a person hosting people at his home.

2. "who is in the region"- for plural (every jew and Israeli) is that correct putting in that way?

3. "for a warm and traditional Sabbath's meal"- is that grammatically correct?

4. new acquaintances- I'm looking for expression that describing to meet new people... is that correct?

5. abundant food - is that correct to write it that way? where people have many food to eat.

6. "even a place to sleep", here my doubt if it should be "to sleep in"?

"traditional Sabbath's meal" should be "traditional Sabbath meal". You wrote Shabbat in one place and Sabbath in another. I'm not sure whether that was intentional. "Sabbath" is the anglicised word (not specific to the Jewish religion).

To me, "words of Torah" should be "words of the Torah". However, there are numerous Google hits for the phrase without "the". I'm not sure why. Maybe it is an accepted convention.

"region" sounds like a large area, perhaps too large to invite everyone in it to your house.

"a place to sleep" is OK in itself, but somewhere can't be "filled with ... a place to sleep", which is literally what you say. However, by the time we get to "place to sleep" we have slightly forgotten that it is still governed by "filled with", so it does not leap out as an error.

The rest all looks OK.

Thanks for these corrections,

Maybe I can replace "region" to area? so "who is in the area"? does this looks better? though with "who is the area" i'm checking how to write it more neat.

as for Sabbath, I have to write this one for having a meal on Sabbath, and that other that it happens on Sabbath, something like that, I will see how to edit/change that, many thanks my friend.

You could consider "neighbourhood". This gives the idea of a relatively small area.

Thanks, good idea
