This year, Human Rights Shabbat will be December 10-11, with the alternate date of December 3-4 for communities with a conflicting program. Participation can be either minimal or more extensive-the important thing is to celebrate the 62nd anniversary of the passage of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in your community. Human Rights Shabbat is free, and materials will be distributed in early November.
With International Human Rights Day falling on a Friday, this is a wonderful year for Jews around the world to celebrate universal human rights together with people around the world.
