The Shabbos Project

  • The Shabbos Project is a unique, international grassroots Jewish identity movement that unites all Jews to keep one full Shabbat together. The idea originated last year in South Africa, where the majority of the country’s diverse Jewish community joined together to observe a single Shabbat, most for the first time in their lives.

    The International Shabbos Project will take place on the Shabbat of 24/25 October 2014 in more than 170 cities and 30 countries around the globe.

    By experiencing the magic of Shabbat just once, we can rejuvenate family and community life, restore Jewish pride and identity, and build Jewish unity across the world!

    A Social Movement
    The Shabbos Project is a social movement with Shabbat at its core; a movement that unites Jews all over the world through one common, achievable goal. While The Shabbos Project is coordinated and managed through formal communal organisations and partners, the project is essentially a grassroots movement that is driven by the people for the people.

    An Undiluted Experience
    The call of The Shabbos Project is to observe an entire halachic Shabbat  together. Shabbat has been kept this way for thousands of years. Undoubtedly, it is the undiluted Shabbos experience from which we can draw its full power and inspiration. The pilot in South Africa saw an extraordinary proportion of “first-timers” – far exceeding expectations – responding enthusiastically, perhaps not despite, but because of the challenge. Judging by the level of interest and enthusiasm to date, this phenomenon looks likely to be replicated around the world.
