Light of Shabbat Project



In memory of Rabbi Gabi and Rebbetzin Rivky Holtzberg, who brought the light of Shabbat to Jewish people of all backgrounds in Mumbai, India.

To bring the light of Shabbat into Jewish homes by delivering Shabbat boxes with food and other items on Fridays.

To spread this mitzvah through the dedication of volunteers.

To foster community spirit.

Every Friday, select Jewish homes on the Island receive a “Shabbat-kit” that includes some basic items for the Shabbat table bringing the light of joy of Shabbat to their home.
