The Shabbat Challenge
This year’s Shabbat Project might feel a little different without live events and huge Shabbat tables filling up around the world. But in truth – as cities shut down, grandparents stopped hugging grandkids and full time parents became full time teachers – one of the things that remained consistent was Shabbat. An anchor in all the crazy.
And the irony is that this year we may be closer to each other than ever before. Whether we are in Amsterdam or Connecticut, Golders Green or Lagos – we are all home.
The year has reminded us that our homes are our anchor. And it’s clear that our anchor needs even more Shabbat. This year – come November 6 – let’s flood our homes with the light, life, meaning, warmth and depth of Shabbat.
This year, let’s bring it home – that’s where it belongs.
Shabbat is all about unplugging and making it a special day. This awesome list will give you the opportunity to accept a challenge and observe Shabbat by accepting to do a little more, and unplug. Starting on the Shabbat of November 6-7, accept a challenge from the list below to do every Shabbat (Friday night, Saturday or all of Shabbat!) for 12 weeks. You may choose a challenge from the “Add to Your Celebration of Shabbat” section or a challenge from the “Disconnect to Connect” section, or both! Anyone completing 10 out of 12 weeks of your challenge will be entered into raffle for great prizes!
