The Gift of Shabbat

"More than the Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews"

- Achad HaAm

We invite you to experience the JOI of Shabbat. Spend Shabbat with us at a program below or let us find you the perfect host to enjoy an unforgettable authentic Shabbat. Get into the driver's seat with resources below that will teach you how to participate and even host a Shabbat dinner of your own. Better yet, learn in person with a Shabbat Coach or attend a Prep 'n Schlep event where we'll walk you through all the details. It's not as hard as you think!


Each week, receive a crate filled with everything you need to have a fantastic Shabbat. Each crate includes an 8 ounce bottle of grape juice, tea lights, challah dough and materials to make a different Shabbat craft and learn more about that week's theme.
