Sabbath Welcoming Ceremony

On Friday night in many Jewish homes, a traditional ceremony takes place to mark the commencement of the Sabbath.

The experience is brought to life for students as they lay the table, light the Sabbath candles, and recite the ritual words known as the Kiddush.

This is performed over grape juice and ceremonial bread, which is then served and shared among the students.

Our simple and sociable approach allows students to learn about the Sabbath and its significance to Jewish people.

Included at the end of most student excursions, this program is suitable to all year levels and curriculum types.
