Shabbat Project 2019

by | Oct 28, 2019 | What’s Happening

Friday, November 15—Saturday, November 16

A global, grassroots movement that brings Jews from across the world together around the shared heritage of Shabbat, The Shabbat Project was introduced in South Africa in 2013 to astonishing effect. In the days that followed, the Jewish world heard, and was inspired by how the majority of the community kept Shabbat, and how Jews were brought together in unprecedented ways.

The concept is simple: Jews from all walks of life, from across the spectrum—religious, secular, and traditional, young and old, from all corners of the world—unite to experience one full Shabbat together.

For the past five years, the Tidewater community has joined this global movement. Last year, 200 people came together for a beautiful and inspiring Friday night dinner in the Ghent neighborhood. The Tidewater Shabbat Project hopes to expand and bring together the entire community.
