The 2017 Shabbos Project garnered coverage in major mainstream publications such as the Chicago Tribune, the San Diego Tribune, the Huffington Post and the London Times; major Jewish media houses such as the Times of Israel, the Jerusalem Post, the Forward, Algemeiner and JTA; local Jewish newspapers across the US; and all of Israel’s main news sites.
At the hub
At The Shabbos Project headquarters, in Johannesburg, a team of designers, copywriters and campaign strategists worked around the clock, custom-designing materials for literally hundreds of cities, putting together global reports and executing print-runs in the tens of thousands.
From the field
To co-ordinate the initiative on a global scale, the head office in Johannesburg worked with more than 8 000 partners worldwide – up from 6 000 partners in 2016.
Around the world
This year’s fourth international Shabbos Project reached 1 416 cities and 97 countries around the world – up from 1 152 cities and 95 countries in 2016. More than one million people took part in celebrations on and around the Shabbos of 27 and 28 October, with events attracting record numbers of participants in many locations.
