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.
- Check out SSA’s official website, which also features a handy guide that locates synagogues in your area.
- Find a real or virtual Shabbat table at Shabbat Across America 2.0.
- 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.
- Prefer to DIY? Jewcy’s own Tamar Fox offers how-to guides on hosting a Shabbat dinner and performing a havdallah ceremony.
- Some extra Shabbat basics from My Jewish Learning.
- Finally, you can celebrate “Secular Sabbath” ala Mark Bittman of the New York Times by spending 24 hours unplugged from modern gadgets.
