Shabbat Chai means “Live Shabbat.” Our goal in creating Shabbat Chai was simple: learn through authentic experience.  Instead of learning about being Jewish on Sundays, we will learn about Shabbat and holidays by celebrating them together. We will learn about Jewish values by going out in the community and living them.
