What to Expect

The AlternativeShabbat program offers an opportunity for incoming tourists of all backgrounds to experience an authentic Shabbat (Jewish Sabbath) at the home of young artists, musicians or simply yet-to-know-what-they-want-to-do dudes. AlternativeShabbat participants receive an informative introduction to Shabbat while munching on vegan food, singing songs and discussing topics no one wants to discuss, like politics, the struggles of the LGBTQ community in Israel, the state of the foreign workers, etc.

We begin with a general introduction about Shabbat as we young Jewish guys in Israel see it, and the role of “Tikkun Olam” in our day-to-day life (Tikkun Olam is a concept in Judaism of “improving the state of the world”).

We then sing some songs and sometimes play a game or two, before breaking into smaller conversations, which evolve naturally with the (new) friends seated next to you.

The AlternativeShabbat was created by a team of artists and educators with the goal of developing a fun evening program for incoming tourists of all backgrounds to experience an authentic Friday night in the city of sins ;)
