What is The Shabbat Project 614?

Here in Columbus, Shabbat means different things to different people. This weekend is a springboard to bring the community together around one Shabbat weekend.

From people who celebrate Shabbat weekly, monthly, yearly or not at all, this is an opportunity to collectively come together to share traditions and make new ones as a Columbus Strong Community.


Welcome to our global, grassroots movement.

The idea is simple: Jews from all walks of life, from across the spectrum of religious affiliation, young and old, from all corners of the world – come together to experience the magic of one full Shabbat kept together.

It’s our opportunity to renew family and community life, restore Jewish identity, and unite Jews across the globe.

It’s about creating a new Jewish future together.


Your help enables us to bring together every facet of our Columbus Jewish community as we celebrate with over 360 Jewish communities around the world. Sponsorship opportunities are available for individuals and organizations at a variety of levels. Contributing to the success of The Shabbat Project 614 in a significant way offers the opportunity to be promoted all over the Columbus area digitally and in print, and to over 1000 people during our events.
