As part of the Shabbat Project, we are encouraging people from different parts of the community to come together and experience the beauty of a Shabbat meal together on Friday, 23rd October or Saturday, 24th October.
We are here to guide your hosts every step of the way, with invitations to download, print and distribute as well as an exclusive Shabbat Kit! Feel free to invite your Jewish neighbours, dance class friends, local sports team, or children's friendship circle.
Across the world in 65 countries, 465 cities, 1 million Jews will be doing the same thing. We hope you can join us. Please fill out this form to arrange a dinner in your home, local park or street and we'll be in touch.
The Shabbat Project Melbourne 2014 was an amazing success. Thousands of people across Melbourne's Jewish Community came together to celebrate Shabbat in all its beauty with hundreds of thousands of Jews in communities across the globe.
From the beautiful, spiritual Great Glick's Challah Bake on the Thursday night, right through an unmatched Shabbat filled with functions and events and culminating in the magical Havdallah Concert in Caulfield Park, the community experienced something truly special and memorable.
Many people kept Shabbat for the first time and others went out of their ways to help others learn and participate fully in the beautiful mitzvah that is Shabbat. For weeks and months after, people were telling their stories about how their life was enhanced by The Shabbat Project.
In 2015, we are coming together again to do it in an even bigger and better way.
