Sabbath in the Sky in Tel Aviv

| |

The Chabad-Lubavitch movement has unveiled a new project in Tel Aviv that will have beachgoers seeing the Sabbath in the sky.

The group’s Tel Aviv-Yafo branch has prepared a special glider that will hover over the coastline with the pre-Sabbath candle lighting times printed on its underside, allowing passersby to see when the holy day begins.

The new project is part of an ongoing campaign to increase Sabbath observance in the largely secular city. In addition to the glider, Chabad activists have distributed material explaining the holiness of the Sabbath day, put up billboards explaining the importance of Sabbath observance, and spoken to hundreds of families about the mitzvoth (commandments) relating to the Sabbath day.
