Join the global movement in Ottawa


Jews from all over the world are coming together November 15-16 to experience one complete Shabbat together.

The Shabbat Project is a global, grassroots movement that brings Jews from across the world together through uniting over our shared heritage: Shabbat. The initiative was first introduced in South Africa in 2013, and has since spread across the Jewish world. Shabbat Project is about: accessing the experience of celebrating Shabbat, together, as Jews around the world. The inspiring gift that Shabbat is – both for ourselves and our families – emerges only when we live out Shabbat practically, in a real and experiential way.​
