Chabad of Binghamton is partnering with 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 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 October 23/24 2015 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.

The Shabbos Project in Binghamton

In joining the movement here in Binghamton, we are having special events and additions to the regular Shabbat experience.

Students have committed to marking this Shabbos in a special way. Some are actually observing (for their first time) the entire Shabbat from beginning until end in all of its halachic detail and splendor, some are joining Shabbat services or an additional Shabbat meal they may otherwise not attend, and others are taking the first step of participating in their first Shabbat dinner.

The community is making an effort to mark this Shabbos in a more special and significant way, #KeepingItTogether with thousands of Jews around the world.

  • Together we will keep the Shabbat of 24-25 October
  • Its rhythm will unite us with each other, with Jews around the world and throughout the ages.
  • On this day we will renew ourselves, emerging spiritually, emotionally and physically invigorated.
  • On this day we will own our precious heritage, wearing it as a badge of pride and honour.

Together we embark on this great adventure to rediscover
our G-d-given gift of Shabbos.

Join us for a special Shabbat of unity, identity and connection.
