Sponsor a Shabbat

Sponsor a Shabbat

Help support the Jewish highlight of the week!


Sponsoring Shabbat is a meaningful way to partner in Jewish life in Ithaca. Shabbat is far more than simply a meal. It's a warm, inviting experience where students, faculty and local residents can enjoy an inspirational story, a heartwarming idea, sing an upbeat melody and socialize with other Jewish people in Ithaca.

The magic is made possible by you!

Thank you for being a Shabbat sponsor. :-)
