Chabad Illovo reaches out

  • SAJR Seeya after Shabbos
Chabad Illovo is celebrating the Shabbos Project by thinking of others through the innovative “Unbox Shabbos” initiative. This project will ensure that needy Jewish families across Johannesburg will anonymously receive a packaged Shabbos delivery from various members of Chabad of Illovo. This way they can share in the joy of the Shabbos Project.

The shul is providing the boxes which contain a basic Shabbos kit of grape juice/wine, candles, matches, a custom-made challah cover, Kiddush cup and Shabbos instruction pamphlet. Community members and their families will then each fill the remainder of one of the boxes with food and anything else that would help make Shabbos special for the recipient families.

Even though it’s not possible to invite everyone’s families into the homes of the Chabad Illovo community, they want to include as many as possible to their “extended” Shabbos tables so they can celebrate a special Shabbos in their own homes, with dignity, pride, and good food.
