National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths Manual Vol. 17
A multi-faith resource for year-round child advocacy.
What is the Children’s Sabbath?
Sponsored by the Children’s Defense Fund, the annual, multi-faith National Observance of Children’s Sabbaths weekend is an occasion to celebrate children as sacred gifts of the Divine and to recognize and respond to the urgent needs of children. It provides the opportunity for communities of faith to renew and live out their moral responsibility to care for, protect, and advocate for all children. This resource book (and our website, www.childrensdefense.org/childrenssabbaths) provides all you need to plan a service of worship, educational programs, and activities to affirm what your place of worship already does with and for children while challenging members to take new actions and commit to new efforts to meet the needs of children in your community, state and our nation.
