Meet Your Neighbour Shabbat Dinners

The Intercultural Dialogue Institute’s (IDI) ongoing Meet Your Neighbour project in the GTA is partnering with a number of local Toronto synagogues to facilitate Shabbat dinners on February 22nd.

The Meet Your Neighbour project seeks to bring people from various cultures and faiths together in an environment of kindness, respect, and hospitality. Hosts and guests organise meals throughout the year based around certain feast day celebrations and holy meals of various religious and cultural traditions. By bringing people together in the context of a shared meal, the IDI seeks to promote dialogue in a way that fosters greater personal understanding across social and cultural differences.

Currently, the IDI is looking for people to register as either hosts or guests for Shabbat dinners on February 22nd. If you are curious to learn more about Shabbat, or are interested in hosting or being a guest at a shabbat meal, please visit their website to register and to find out more about this project.

The deadline to register as a host is February 10th.
