The Shabbos Project Coming to Rockland

The Shabbos Project is a wonderful program that aims to bring the beauty of Shabbos to thousands around the world who would otherwise not celebrate and keep Shabbos. This program has been carried out very successfully in South Africa and other communities.

Rabbi Dov and Shevi Oliver and Mrs. Bracha Meshchaninov are working on bringing The Shabbos Project to Rockland and join in this global show of Achdus on Shabbos Parshas Noach, Rosh Chodesh Cheshvan, the 24th and 25th of October.

We are asking you to invite people who would otherwise not keep Shabbos to your home - family, friends, work colleagues or anyone else you may know - who could benefit and enjoy a genuine Shabbos experience.

There will likely also be a pre-event on Thursday night and a post-Shabbos musical Melave Malka on Motzei Shabbos.

While we don't expect rock solid commitments right know, please email dovoliver@gmail.com if you think it's likely that you'll be able to participate by hosting your people for that Shabbos.
