The Jewish Community of San Diego is encouraging every household to attend Friday and/or Saturday Shabbat services at a venue of their choice in honor of the victims of the Poway shootings and as a statement against Hate and anti-Semitism. This unity Shabbat program is referred to as #SanDiegoStrongSolidarityShabbat.
We are a people of great resilience and determination with a responsibility to be a "light" upon the world. We will not be deterred! We look to restore the holy day of Shabbat and make sure its blessings of peace, joy, family values and divinity, will be felt in our homes and the world around us.
Please join the Jewish Federation of San Diego County, Shabbat San Diego and the global Shabbat Project in #SanDiegoStrongSolidarityShabbat and encourage others to participate in this coming Shabbat

Shabbat is a day of rest and celebration that begins on Friday at sunset and ends on the following evening after nightfall. In Jewish tradition, the world was created in seven days: six days of work that was celebrated in the seventh day, Shabbat, a day of rest. Thus making Shabbat the centerpiece of Jewish life, and has been so since the infancy of our nation.
