This year our Shabbat San Diego is looking a little different and wouldn’t be the same without U! How will U choose to make this one Shabbat extra special?

Instead of large centralized programs we are cohosting with partners throughout San Diego for intimate welcoming and unique Shabbat experiences. From Challah Makes to Shabbat Meals, Learning how to make Shabbat Meals have that EXTRA special touch to Havdalah, Services to Lectures, this year the sky is your limit.   Please visit Sign-in to see what event is best for you. And if you do not see what you want create it and let us know!

Shabbat San Diego provides a spiritual, emotional and educational experience that inspires each member of our community to participate and explore their heritage through ongoing activities at existing community organizations. Shabbat San Diego, for one weekend a year, brings the magic of Shabbat to San Diego, rejuvenating family and community life.

Communities are fragile, and they are not Unbreakable. In these times of growing intolerance, we need a venue to enjoy what we have in common, and create a sense of local and global Jewish solidarity and Jewish pride. Participate in Shabbat San Diego.

Cannot wait to celebrate with U!
