Welcoming Shabbat Around the World
Ji Connect celebrates the diversity of the Jewish people in a visually stimulating and active way, connecting Jews around the world. Users tap people at the Western Wall in Jerusalem and are transported to their countries to look at their synagogues, history and customs. They hear how they welcome the Shabbat in that country, and how they sing the song ‘Lecha Dodi’. It is a tool to encourage pride in identity, tolerance, and to celebrate cultural similarities and differences.
Although aimed at children aged 6 to 11, this app can be enjoyed by Jews of all ages!
