In Melbourne Shabbat begins Fri 10 Apr 2020 05:41 PM and ends Sat 11 Apr 2020 06:40 PM

Shabbat across the world

י"ט כסלו ה' אלפים תשס"ח

Under impulse of the Chief Rabbi of France Joseph Haim Sitruk
Endorsed and blessed by the Chief Rabbis of Israel
And by world Rabbis
(Hassidim, Ashkhenazim, Sepharadim)

Every Jew, all over the world, is being asked to join in observing this Shabbat Chanukah, on the 4th day of this Festival of Lights, so that we can concretize the words of the Sages:

"if all Jews together observe one Shabbat, they would be immediately delivered."

Everyone can experience this Shabbat in the most convenient way : at home with your family and loved ones, with friends or with a community Shabbaton organized in your area. The Chief Rabbi of France suggests to set up the principle of "One plus One". If every person who already enjoys every Shabbat can invite, at least one person who doesn't, we will build all together a wonderful Shabbat!

In order to start organizing ourselves, we suggest that all the Community rabbis and persons in charge, the volunteers helping to make this single world event a great success, mark this date on their calendars and disseminate as widely as possible this information, by using all the media at our disposal today (Internet, Press, Radio, Posters, Flyers, Announcements...), in order to reach our brothers and sisters everywhere in the world. It is desirable to organize a Community Shabbat where it is possible.

Shabbat is the most beautiful gift which the Creator granted us: one moment of re-uniting with oneself, our family, our friends, our neighbors, our community. Far from the constant demands of the materialistic world, it is a moment when one reconnects with his or her Source and where one can learn how to approach the events of the week to come: our social relations, at work, with our children, our parents, and to study the advice given by the divine Torah to live a harmonious and peaceful life. This is a beautiful program, proposed to you to live this Shabbat Chanukah, December 8th.
