A Message from the Shabbat Project
“More than the Jews have kept Shabbat, Shabbat has kept the Jews.” – Achad Ha'am
For the first time in recent history, or maybe even for the first time in world history, we are all home… together.
We have an unprecedented opportunity to bring the joy and happiness of Shabbat into our homes. We can disconnect from the fear and uncertainty of the world for 25 hours and take comfort in one another and our shared tradition.
We’ve curated some of our best Shabbat resources to help you bring the light of Shabbat into your home.
Join us in #KeepingItTogether this Shabbat, uniting our individual homes around the world in the warm embrace of Shabbat. Now, more than ever, we need Shabbat.
United together. Physically apart. One nation. One heart.
May G-d bless our community and our world with healing and health.
The Shabbat Project Team
Our Shabbat Map* will guide you in how to prepare for and fully experience Shabbat at home.

Inspiration throughout your week
Gratitude and optimism are the keys to taking a difficult situation and turning it into a life-changing experience. Here are some of our favorites.
Stealing a day out of life to live
Founder of The Shabbat Project, Chief Rabbi Goldstein, explains how in a world of distraction and disconnection, Shabbat enters to offer us that chance to connect, revisit, reinvigorate and reinvest in our most important relationships.
On Shabbat, we come face to face with the world as it is and ourselves as we are, according to Rabbi Shais Taub. It’s frightening. It’s liberating. And it’s deeply necessary.
A Shabbat State of Mind
Rabbi Ari Shishler teaches us how to move Shabbat from your calendar into your consciousness. Shabbat is not a slice of time... it’s a state of mind.
Have your very own exclusive family challah bake in the comfort and safety of your home. Play, plug and knead with our Challah bake demo video. All you need to do is convince your family to join in.
