Plug Into Shabbat – October 23/24/25

San Diego will join in on International Unity Shabbat along with 340 cities in 35 countries across the globe. Unplug your electronics and forget your daily schedules, burdens, distractions and demands. For 25 hours enjoy personal rest, spend time with family and friends, attend services, study, enjoy a Shabbat dinner with blessings, light the candles, eat some challah and sing. Get reinvigorated by participating in community unity and global solidarity events.

Shabbat San Diego, along with over 100 participating congregations, organizations, youth groups and schools, is coordinating a full program from Thursday, October 23rd through the 25th. On Thursday, October, 23rd, there will be a community-wide mega challah bake at the San Diego Jewish Academy (register early as space is limited). On Friday evening, October 24th, congregations throughout the county will welcome all individuals to services and to communal or hosted private home Shabbat dinners. Register online to be matched with a host home. On Saturday morning, congregational services throughout the county will be held followed by Kiddush, lunches, afternoon lectures, and study sessions. Children’s activities will be offered at select venues around the city.

On Saturday evening, the weekend will conclude with a huge, vibrant community unity Havdalah and musical celebration with the Maccabeats. Hundreds of children, ages 10 and under, will kick off the evening with a touching entrance. The event is free and all are welcome. Sign up and learn more at www.shabbatsandiego.org .
