Global Shabbat Toolkit

What's the Global Shabbat Toolkit?

For generations and for Jewish communities across the globe, Shabbat meals have offered the opportunity to bring together people in our lives to share in food, tradition, and conversation.

This toolkit was created to help share experiences overseas with JDC Entwine in an interactive and meaningful way over Shabbat dinner. We provide everything needed to set up a dinner for eight- Shabbat ritual items, resources on global communities, dynamic conversation prompts, and more!

The rest is up to you. Whether dinner is hosted in a home, in a park, or at a restaurant; whether all of the pieces in the toolkit are used or just a few – there’s no wrong way to do dinner and each one will reflect the host’s unique style, taste, and experiences.
