The Shabbat Project a global event

In recent years in home and shuls around the world, family and communal Shabbat dinners have risen in both frequency and popularity.

Organizations have banded together to host Shabbat Across Canada, and now the Shabbat Project has gone a step further by taking observance of the week's holiest day global.

The idea originated last year in South Africa, where the majority of the country’s diverse Jewish community joined together to observe a single Shabbat, many for the first time in their lives.  

The international Shabbat Project will take place this weekend on Oct. 24 and 25 in more than 212 cities and 33 countries worldwide.

In Toronto, there are three events we here at Heebonics can tell you about. The first, a challah bake, takes place tonight, Thursday, Oct. 23 at the Embassy Grand Convention Center in Brampton, and a second, a  Havdallah concert  , will take place as Shabbat ends on Saturday night at the Lebovic Community Campus in Vaughan. A Shabbat dinner is also being held at the Annex Shul in the downtown core Friday night.
