That would be an honor and a mitzvah, but I don't think I could offer a great Shabbat at this stage.
Here's the routine: I shoe my students out of our house around six PM. I run and collect the babies from kindergarten. The wife comes home cooks friend rice or something.

Sometime between 7 and 8 we are all finished. I set the Shabbat table up, pop on Shalom Sesame, It's Shabbat Grover.
We say the blessings for candles, the grape juice (wine) and the bread, The kids like to sing BimBam. And I'm sneaking some little things in here and there. The kids look forward to Shabat Shalom.

I live in PingDong County, just over the Kaoping River. If you have other reasons to come to this area, please PM me with your real id, face book info or other info that will help me identify you as you. And I'll reveal my real contact info. We can get toeh

Well, it depends on which service you go to. Shachreit (morning) Mincha (afternoon) or Maariv (evening) services all have the same basic structure, but differences between them. The services are also different at certain times of the month and week--i.e. Shabbat services are different from weekday services, we only read from the Torah on certain days of the week, we have certain prayers for certain seasons, we have more prayers to say on a Rosh Chodesh (new month) or on a fast day or holiday....

I have found a webpage that can give you an idea to how some of our services are conducted.
