The Shabbat Project is a unique, international, grassroots Jewish identity movement that seeks to unite all Jews with the ideal of observing one full Shabbat together. It is hoped that by experiencing the magic of Shabbat, even once, Jews across the world will experience a rejuvenation of family and community life, restore Jewish pride and identity and build Jewish unity.

Community members of all levels of observance – religious, secular, traditional; young and old – will unify by keeping one full Shabbat.

Rabbi Kahn noted “Some 9 months ago the RCV Committee highlighted this project as being of great importance for the Melbourne Jewish Community. It was an honour to be tasked with organising the One Shabbat Project and the immediate response from wide reaching areas of the community has been exhilarating”.

Rabbi Mordechai Gutnick, President of the RCV said “The RCV remains committed to strengthening the community’s engagement in keeping Mitzvot. We encourage everyone to get involved with the communal challa baking and havdala events and with organising further Shabbat and family centric events. ”

The Shabbat Project will be on 24-25th October. To sign up, please visit
