EUJS welcomes this great initiative coming up in November! We're talking about the Shabbos Project! The event, which takes place in over 85 countries and more than 900 cities, aims to strengthen Jewish identities and therewith strengthen the the Jewish community as a whole.
The Project aims to unite Jews from all walks of life, from across the spectrum – religious, secular and traditional, young and old, from all corners of the world – to experience one full Shabbat together, in full accordance with Jewish law.
The wholehearted embrace of The Shabbat Project by Jews from across every conceivable divide – language, culture, background, geography, level of observance – demonstrated in the most graphic fashion the depth of the connection between the Jewish people and Shabbat. The Shabbat Project is about creating a new Jewish future based on Jewish unity, pride and values. The Shabbat Project transcends the barriers that seem to separate us. It is our opportunity to rejuvenate family and community life, restore Jewish pride and identity, and strengthen Jewish unity across the globe.
