October 21 – 27 2018

Shabbat San Diego is an independent grassroots level community-wide, inclusive and egalitarian organization of volunteers dedicated to encouraging the entire San Diego Jewish community to participate in a unique, international Jewish identity event that inspires all Jews to experience Shabbat together. The International Unity Shabbat will take place in more than 1500 cities and 97 countries and 10 languages around the globe. For the first time, we’ve turbocharged Shabbat San Diego into a full week of more than 50 exciting diverse activities designed to expand the reach and strengthen our growing Jewish Community. Known as the Jewish Xperience, this week offers numerous spiritual, cultural and social activities across the county. Subjects explore Arts & Culture, Science & Technology, Health & Wellness, History, Jewish Learning and other relevant matters.
