The war in Israel is about who we are and what we stand for – an ongoing attempt to uproot our eternal values and history.
In response, this year’s Shabbat Project is a clear statement of intent – a call for every Jew in every corner of the globe to keep Shabbat from sunset on Friday, November 3, until stars out on Saturday, November 4. A sublime moment of global Jewish unity. One people. One heart. One Shabbat.
To make it simple and straightforward, we have a variety of resources and support materials to enrich your Shabbat experience and empower you to keep Shabbat!
