Shabbat for Everyone

Wherever you are, there is Shabbat. Whoever you are, there is Shabbat. Shabbat is portable and personal — and we want to help you make the most of it on your own terms with the people who matter most to you.

The Most Ancient ~Wellness~ Ritual

Shabbat, much like yoga or meditation for some, is an act of rebellion against a constantly moving world. We bring ritual to the table not because we have to, but because disconnecting in order to intentionally connect, separate from the work week, and build community is holy – and really good for you.

Our work creates an opportunity for everyone to better engage in their own work. Taking intentional time each week to recharge means everyone can return to their work (whether corporate, justice-oriented, creative, or otherwise) with fresh energy and focus.

From Generation to Generation

May this intergenerational experience be an opportunity to welcome the wisdom of our elders, inspire the energy of our youth, and learn from one another with joy and openness as we celebrate Shabbat.

Why Be Jewish

The guides in this series invite you to explore the question “Why Be Jewish?” in three different contexts: In a Time of Crisis, A Personal Response, and A Communal Response. There will be as many answers as there are guests, and that’s exactly as it should be.

Shabbat Alone, Together

Friday night is an invitation to elevate time and encounter joy. This guide can help you do that while alone, together.

Solo Shabbat Guide

Friday night is an invitation to practice radical hospitality, to elevate time and space, to encounter joy. We have created this dinner guide to support you as you do that alone, together.  Whether you are celebrating on your own, virtually with others online, or in person with your housemates, we hope these resources connect you to the experience of Shabbat in a way that is new and — perhaps surprisingly — sacred.

In Jewish tradition, the world is created in an evolution of seven days: six days of work that culminate in the seventh day, Shabbat, a day of rest. Judaism teaches that we, human beings, are responsible for continuing the work of creation to make the world a better place, day after day, week after week. That work requires Shabbat. Here are the basics.
