Over 100,000 people took part in what is now thought to have been the largest mass participation event ever organized for the Jewish community in the UK, ShabbatUK. The Chief Rabbi invited all Jews to celebrate Shabbat in a way they never have before by harnessing all the goodness and uniqueness of a traditional, authentic Shabbat.
Jews in communities across the UK joined millions of others in 350 cities worldwide in celebrating ‘a Sabbath like no other’. Over 100 communities got involved in 600 community events including explanatory prayer services, popular Challah (traditional bread) Making events and ‘Havdalah’ parties to mark the end of Shabbat.
ShabbatUK kicked off with 7000 people across the country taking part in Challah Makes in 26 nationwide locations. The flagship event at Allianz Park sports stadium in London, attracted over 3000 attendees alone, making their own challah to take home for their Shabbat meals.
The PR Office is working with East Coast Trains to run a competition offering children aged 5 to 11 a chance to win a trip for themselves and their classmates by designing their 'happy journey'.
A national winner will win a trip on the East Coast route for their whole class and two runners-up will receive tickets for their families. The winning design will be turned into a large scale model by artist Ptolemy Elrington and will be auctioned for the charity Railway Children at their annual ball.
East Coast’s Happy Journeys competition will be judged by children’s author and illustrator Judith Kerr alongside the host of CBeebies TV’s children’s art and craft show, ‘Mister Maker’.
The competition was launched to celebrate five years of East Coast. Since taking over in 2009, East Coast has significantly improved the travelling experience, and the company wants to share its success with customers along its route.
