    description: Here is our exciting programme, full of activities to celebrate ShabbatUK in Leeds along side all other communities around the world. ShabbatUK harnesses the goodness and uniqueness of a traditional, authentic Shabbat and invites Jews around the country to celebrate it in a way they never have before. Shabbat is a central part of what it is to be Jewish. It plays a crucial role in Jewish identity with its powerfully uplifting and transformative qualities. The Chief Rabbi calls on Jews across the UK, regardless of their level of religious observance, to celebrate a Shabbat unlike any other, on the weekend of Friday 24th October and Saturday 25th October. What can you do to be part of this experience? You could possibly keeping Shabbat, perhaps for the first time, you may participate in the numerous communal related events taking place over that week. Many find ways to bring Shabbat into their homes, whether by lighting Friday night candles, blessing their children or by inviting others into their home to share the Shabbat experience. Our Synagogues, Jewish schools and other Jewish organisations are planning a series of events to mark ShabbatUK. This is an incredible opportunity to join with fellow Jews around the world, inspired by the South African Shabbos Project, to experience life, for just one day, disconnected from the daily grind and engage with Shabbat in a meaningful way.
