Ages All

Delight in this moment. Shabbat is more than a day for resting. It’s also a day to enjoy the delights of the world.

  • Holidays
  • Jewish Life
Table setting for Shabbat

Every Friday at sunset, by lighting candles, drinking wine and sharing meals, we can connect with others and create more joy in our lives. As you enter Shabbat, reflect on the following questions:

  • What is different about you this week from last?
  • What are you grateful for this week?
  • In what ways would you like to make more time for yourself and others this week?

Need a little extra shalom in your home? Head over to our Facebook page on Friday afternoons where each week one of our Jewish educators shares a short video, photo, poem, or inspiring text filled with wisdom and opportunities to reflect on the week as we bring in the light of Shabbat together as a community.

Shabblock Parties

We’re bringing Shabbat to the streets! You’re invited to join us each month as we bring a little JCCSF delight and end-of-week ritual to a new neighborhood in San Francisco as part of our Shabblock Party series.

Each Shabblock Party will highlight the neighborhood, our community partners and the season through crafts, music, poetry, snacks and meaningful reflection activities curated especially for you. Design your own experience with our Shabblock Party kit that you can enjoy in the moment or take with you on your own Shabbat adventure.

Find us across the city, on slow streets and street fests, from the beach to the bay. We’ll bring the vibes, you bring your light.
