Bring them home
We have set up an empty Shabbat table at the Magid campus.
This Shabbat table has been constructed as a reminder of the more than 200 hostages currently being held in Gaza by Hamas. We leave the seats empty as a symbol of the hostages who are unable to attend Shabbat with their loved ones. This installation originated from the Tel Aviv Museum of Art where they set a table of over 200 seats for the hostages and is now being used as a way of holding the hostages in mind, all around the world. This Shabbat table is constructed as a plea for these people brought back home to their families and to their country. Our students and staff are praying for the hostages’ safe return.
