We’re bringing together youth groups from every major world religion to do the things we love to do. We’ll laugh, we’ll sing, we’ll play, we’ll eat, and we’ll serve by preparing backpacks for Centro Legal de la Raza full of survival supplies which will be distributed to immigrants released from detention centers oftentimes with nothing more than what fits in their pockets.
We will explore Shabbat through Jewish chant, silence, quieting the mind, and Torah reflection. Together we will weave a space for healing and introspection and experience the gift of Shabbat anew.
