Host a Shabbat Dinner + Educate Your Peers on Israel

The mission of Shabbat 25K is enabling people to experience the magic of Shabbat dinner while learning more about the current situation in Israel. In this difficult moment, it might seem like the problems are too big to solve, but every single one of us can make a difference. We need to proactively be part of the change by learning and engaging our peers. Together, we can build a grassroots movement of over 25,000 people across the country uniting for Israel and Jewish life. Join us.

Sign up below to receive a digital copy of the custom-made Shabbat 25K Hosting Guide! Plus, we’ll share the full recording from the Shabbat 25K Zoom briefing and the interview with Yossi Klein Halevi.
