614 Shabbat

A million Jews in 1,000 cities will celebrate Shabbat together next week.  As reported in the Jewish Press, venues will include a kosher Shabbat dinner at a backpacker’s lodge in Dalat, Vietnam; a 9,000 women-strong challah-baking event in Buenos Aires; a glow-in-the-dark challah event in Costa Rica; a bi-national gathering on the Mexican-U.S. border; a dinner for 1,000 Israelis in a shipping hanger in Tel Aviv; and, a Shabbat kept in full on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro. These are just a few of the remarkable events taking place this year as part of the 5th annual Shabbat Project on October 27 & 28.  Here in Columbus, the 614 Shabbat on October 26-28 will include Challah Bakes, Shabbat Dinners, a Havdalah Concert with the MeshugaNotes, and many more activities throughout the city.  Check out 614 Shabbat on Facebook or email 614Shabbat@gmail.com for more information.
