This weekend is Shabbat Across America, a yearly outreach effort aimed at increasing participation in Jewish life and community. If you don't have plans for tonight, here are a few last minute resources to help you find a dinner or service.

  • College students can contact Hillel to find out what's happening on campus.
  • I’ll be having dinner with some folks from the community service program Livnot U’Lehibanot. Here’s a list of dinners they're hosting around North America, as well as their “Shabbat in a Box” guide.
  • Finally, you can celebrate “Secular Sabbath” ala Mark Bittman of the New York Times by spending 24 hours unplugged from modern gadgets.
