Bringing Shabbat Home



We are all in isolation, stuck in our homes, praying and hoping for better news, for this terrible virus to run its course, for an end to all the pain and suffering.

In the meantime, there are so many questions. What can we do from the safety of our four walls? How can we reach out to our sisters and brothers, to let them know they are not alone?  What can we do to hasten the end of this virus, to bring the Ultimate Redemption one step closer?

Project Inspire presents Bring Shabbat Home, an opportunity to bring Jews from around the world together to keep Shabbos with enthusiasm and a joyous spirit, the way it was meant to be observed, and “Turn Friday night dinner into Shabbat.”

On Friday, April 3, at 6:15 p.m., Project Inspire will host a Pre-Shabbat live celebration, free of charge, which can be viewed at  The event will be hosted by the dynamic Charlie Harary, who combines inspiration, education and entertainment in an unforgettable message. There will be a special intro to candle-lighting by kiruv dynamo Ruchi Koval of Cleveland, as well as live music by Moshe Storch. As a bonus, there will be a Friday night guide and checklist to download to help people turn Friday night family dinner into a full Shabbat experience.

Take this opportunity to infuse some spirituality, true family connection and faith in these difficult times. Bring Shabbat Home is exactly what you were waiting for. Join your brothers and sisters from across the globe, who will be bringing Shabbat home, some of them for the very first time.

Now is the time to encourage your friends, neighbors and relatives to Bring Shabbat Home together with you. Don’t miss it! CLICK HERE


  1. What about Ashkenazim? Why are they left out?

    Why do I just see “Shabbat” here, and not Shabbos?

    Most American Jews are Ashkenazim, not Sephardim! When they think of their bubbes and zeides who kept Shabbos, they think of Shabbos, not Shabbat.

    If the people behind this initiative feel a need to use “Shabbat” for Israelis and others who might be accustomed to that pronunciation, they should still (as the well-known worldwide Shabbos Project, started by Rabbi Goldstein from South Africa does) use Shabbos in their materials and publicity as well. Shabbos has history and warm feelings of nostalgia embedded within it for myriads of Ashkenaz Yidden.
