Representatives from AJC’s 22 offices across the United States reached out to clergy, diplomats, local government officials, and other civic leaders to encourage them to participate in the #SHOWUPFORSHABBAT campaign, while the organization’s 11 international offices worked with partners in over 35 Jewish communities around the globe to launch similar initiatives locally.
Other local, national, and international Jewish organizations encouraged their members to participate in the campaign. Synagogues welcomed the influx of attendees at their Shabbat services with explanatory programming.
