What is Shabbat Challenge All About?
The Shabbat Challenge is one of our most popular and exclusive programs. Young Jewish guys and girls spend five full Shabbats together (Friday evening until Saturday evening) in different communities in the Tri-State area. They get the chance to meet many great people in different communities, make new friends and bond with old ones. Keeping Shabbat might be a challenge, but not when you’re exploring new places with a bunch of amazing people, enjoying exciting programs, classes, and delicious food.
The real challenge is The ShabBUCKET Challenge. All participants place their phones into a designated bucket on Friday before Shabbat starts, and retrieve them after Shabbat is over. On Saturday night, that week’s host will take out the first phone, and its owner wins a raffle prize!
Shabbat #6 will be longer than the others - Friday thru Sunday in Miami! Only participants who fulfill the challenge by keeping the first 5 Shabbats will be eligible for the Miami weekend.
