Last Friday was our bi-annual Shabbat event, with over 2075 Penn students and young professionals sitting down at 80 Shabbat dinners on one night. JHP supplied the food, instructional booklets, and candles and students brought their friends and family to dine in their dorm rooms, apartments, and fraternity/sorority houses.
Shabbat for 2000 is a signature event for JHP. It promotes Jewish identity and leadership, and it teaches students and young professionals to balance their work, personal, and spiritual lives. Shabbat is a time to rest from projects and deadlines, and instead reflect on life while relaxing with friends and family.
