Shabbat is an island in time, where the worries of the work-week melt away and are replaced with the warm glow of the Shabbat candles and Friday night meal. In times of great stress or strife, these moments of peace and reflection are more valuable than ever. It is for that reason that the Shabbat Kit project was born. To provide the basics: candles, challah, grape juice, and other essentials to the families of Jewish patients staying in area hospitals. These kits help to provide peace and comfort to countless men, women, and children at exceptionally difficult times. To request a kit, click here.
