About Us

It all began in South Africa back in 2013 when Chief Rabbi Dr Warren Goldstein ran one big audacious idea past the community - what if we all got together to experience one complete Shabbat...

Shabbat has kept us together across continents and throughout time.
What if Shabbat – the Chief Rabbi wondered aloud – has the secret power to bring us back together, renew our sense of pride as a community, reconnect us to one another and reinvigorate our families and personal life?

The initiative was such a runaway success that communities around the world wanted in on it from year two.

Today, Jews in over 1,688 cities get together annually to experience the magic of Shabbat. In 10 languages – from Panama City to Paris, Long Island to Lagos – Jews are uniting to #KeepItTogether.

The Shabbat Project shows us what a new Jewish future could look like.

Help grow The Shabbat Project.
