Temple Beth Tikvah To Participate In 28th Annual ‘Shabbat Across America’ Program On March 1

On Friday, March 1, members of the Jewish community will gather at Temple Beth Tikvah in an unparalleled display of Jewish revitalization and Jewish unity.

Conceived and organized by National Jewish Outreach Program (NJOP) in 1997, Shabbat Across America represents a united effort by the entire Jewish community to renew interest in the fourth of the Ten Commandments — observing a weekly day of rest (Shabbat in Hebrew).

Temple Beth Tikvah will be one of approximately 700 synagogues across the continent that will simultaneously open its doors to all Jews, so they may join together to experience and rejoice in a traditional Shabbat service and festive meal.

Led by Rabbi Jacob Benzaquen, attendees will experience an interactive explanatory service and a traditional Shabbat dinner with all the rituals explained. The event will take place Friday, March 1, from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

Designed to teach a generation of unaffiliated Jews about the beauty and significance of the Jewish Sabbath, Shabbat Across America is the first and only program aimed at uniting Jews across North America through one event and will take place in every community where there is a Jewish presence.

Located at 4550 Jog Road in Greenacres, Temple Beth Tikvah is an egalitarian Conservative synagogue serving Jews in central Palm Beach County. Since its founding, Temple Beth Tikvah has been an innovator in Jewish programming and education. The congregation invites everyone to this exciting event.
