from there. In 2017, 1,416 cities in 97 countries participated, touching over 1 million Jews

The Shabbat Project is an open-source people’s movement. It is coordinated in cities around
the world by a network of over 8,000 partners who fund and operationalise the project on the
ground. These partners are supported by the global headquarters in Johannesburg,South Africa
and the global operations office in Tel Aviv, Israel.
