This year, the Jewish Passover fell on the same day as Good Friday.

A Shabbat Shalom was organized for our Jewish Residents in Sydney.

The Shabbat is the Jewish Day of Rest. Shabbat Shalom literally means "peaceful Shabbat". A Shabbat happens each week from sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday. During the weekly Shabbat, The Jewish people recall the story of creation from the Torah where God created the world in 6 days and rested on the 7th day. However, this Shabbat celebration fell during the great Jewish feast of Passover and coincided with the Christian commemoration of Good Friday.
