Shabbat Shalom

Discover why the celebration of Shabbat (the Sabbath) is so central to Judaism. Experience how it is celebrated both religiously and culturally.

Explore Shabbat within a family setting including tasting the traditional symbolic food. Look into the theme of separation through the ceremonies of Shabbat and Havdalah.

Reflect on how Shabbat structures Jewish family life and the concept of rest in the modern world and how this might be interpreted within different strands of Judaism.
