Children's Sabbath 2019

28th Annual National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths® Celebration
“Uniting Hearts and Voices to End Child Poverty”
October 18-20, 2019
The multi-faith Children’s Sabbath weekend engages places of worship across the country in focusing prayers, worship, education programs, and action on learning more about the urgent problems facing our nation’s children exploring sacred texts and teachings that call us to love and protect children, responding with outreach and advocacy, and—most importantly–inspiring new, year-round action to improve the lives of children. Some Children’s Sabbath celebrations are community-wide, multi-faith gatherings, others take place in individual places of worship. Together, we are inspiring change that will improve the lives of children!

The National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths is designated for the third weekend of each October—October 18-20, 2019. However, many places of worship participate on alternate dates—other weekends in October and even different months—for a variety of reasons. What’s most important is finding a date that will work for your place of worship, and sharing information with CDF so we can connect efforts across dates, place, and traditions.
