UK Community Shabbaton at Home- Jerusalem Edition – 22nd/23rd May

Dear Member,

We are very excited to send this email to you.

It contains all the details for the UK Community Shabbaton at Home- Jerusalem edition.

This is a project of Mizrachi UK and the United Synagogue and it will allow tens of thousands of homes of all across the UK to join together both with their communities as well as nationally to celebrate Shabbat in our homes this Shabbat 22/23 May in honour of Yom Yerushalayim.

Once again from Sheffield to Stanmore, from Woodside Park to Whitefield we celebrate Shabbat together.

We will be launching on Friday at 6:30pm with a special Yom Yerushalayim concert featuring some of the UK’s favourite names in music, as well as addresses from the Chief Rabbi and the Israeli Ambassador. Once again, a total of over 60 communities across the country are participating in this Shabbaton, sending the project into well over 30,000 homes.

We will then have Kabbalat Shabbat live from HGSS led by Chazan Avromi Freilich and Rabbi Daniel Friedman

This can all be accessed via the United Synagogue YouTube channel:
