PROMINENT INTERNATIONAL RABBI TO ADDRESS SAN DIEGO COMMUNITY
Founder of the Global Shabbat Project and influencer of world Jewry,Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein of South Africa will address the San Diego community at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center (JCC) on Monday December 3rd at 7 pm
The Shabbat Project, a global grassroots movement, last year involved about two million Jews in more than 1500 cities and 97 countries around the world. Shabbat San Diego has been one of the leading cities in this project for each of the past five years. Rabbi Goldstein also established the Sinai Indaba which brings together an array of the foremost international Jewish thinkers and speakers and thousands of Jews of all persuasions, in what is one of the largest annual Torah conventions in the world. These and other initiatives of the Rabbi have changed the face of world Jewry.
His latest endeavor, the House of Learning, will be distributed globally through the Shabbat Project and their thousands of partnering network organizations. The House of Learning is a revolutionary ecosystem of multimedia products, experiences and spaces – expertly curated by global industry leaders to bring Torah wisdom to daily living. The curriculums are for parents and children, teenagers, college students, adults and seniors and all content is integrated across ages and platforms.
“Like The Shabbat Project, the House of Learning is a historic call to unite, not through pain, but in joy through the rich heritage that unites us,” said Rabbi Goldstein.
SOME COMMENTS FROM 2018 SHABBAT SAN DIEGO EVENT ATTENDEES
“Unity in the face of a tragedy during the events was so powerful. The attendance of events was off the chart this year and so many felt the sense of unity, community and belonging!”
“Each event was meaningful, spiritual, loving, warm, and friendly. Great sense of togetherness. We needed it.”
“I’ve attended the Challah Bake every year since its inception. I enjoy being together as a community and knowing I’m taking part in this global celebration!”
“All of these events made us feel connected with our community and Jewish heritage.”
“PLEASE, Have more events throughout the year!”
“Is it next year yet?”
