The Shabbat Catalog - Submission Form

A meaningful keepsake and learning tool, this year’s BJ Celebrate Community Auction journal will be a beautiful bound book full of valuable insights, reflections, and aspirations on our Jewish homes and Shabbat. Members, rabbis and staff will contribute their collective wisdom to the book, and all BJ members will receive a copy.

Consider the following prompts and choose one that moves you. We're eager to hear about both traditional practices and contemporary interpretations.

  • Describe the moment when you feel Shabbat comes in.

  • Share a memory about someone who opened you up to the experience of Shabbat.

  • Tell us about your favorite Shabbat ritual.

  • Recount a favorite Shabbat activity.

  • Share a special Shabbat teaching or idea.
