The Shabbat Project is a worldwide effort to bring Jews together to celebrate the magic of Shabbat. Participants include the affiliated as well as the non-affiliated, the young and the old, from all walks of life. The dates selected by The Shabbat Project’s organizers are November 15-16, 2019.
Pittsburgh decided to add Thursday, November 14th, in conjunction with The Shabbat Project by having “The Great Pink Challah Bake”. “The Great Pink Challah Bake” is being sponsored by Myriad Women’s Health out of San Francisco, CA. In addition to preparing traditional Shabbat challah, men, women and children (parental permission) will be able to learn more about breast cancers and if they choose to have their DNA tested on site.
Friday afternoon we will hold Mincha after which we will have a brief commeration of Pittsburgh’s 11 martyrs, by lighting 11 Yarhtzeit candles. After the Yarhtzeit candles are lit, Shabbat candles will be lit. Kabbalat Shabbat/Maariv will be conducted by Mr. Sam Henteleff singing the melodies of Shlomo Carlebach and all attending are encouraged to sing along. During Maariv Kaddish will be recited for our 11 martyrs. After services are complete, participants are welcome to enjoy a traditional Shabbat meal.
The next morning Shacharit will begin at 9:30 a.m. Around 12:00 Noon, a tradition Shabbat lunch will be served.
Mincha will be held around 4:00 p.m. followed by the third meal of Shabbat. Participants can return to Maariv services and Havdalah.
At the conclusion of The Shabbat Project we will feature local musicians for all to enjoy.
