The Shabbos Project is a unique, international grassroots Jewish identity movement that unites all Jews to celebrate 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 enjoy a single Shabbat. The International Shabbos Project will take place on the Shabbat of 24/25 October 2014 in more than 212 cities and 33 countries around the globe. Here at WUJS we acknowledge that Shabbat means different things for different people and this can be seen through differences in the ways people practice and observe Shabbat.
Whilst the Shabbos Project is under an orthodox banner, we would like to encourage all Jewish student unions that wish to participate in this project to do so. We are confident that unions can embrace this project in a manner that is in keeping with the pluralist values of our movement as a space for all Jewish students regardless of denomination, politics, gender etc. If you would like help, advice or resources to do so, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org check out their website for more information -http://www.theshabbosproject.org/
