An enterprise that crosses tribes and sectors and is held occasionally over the weekend.
Families from all over Israel host others or go to other homes for Sabbath (Shabbat) meals with people different from themselves (religious, secular, Arab, settlers, Ethiopians, etc.).
Many families are happy to experience a different weekend, to get to know others, learn about different traditions, visit new places, and mainly to give and receive an experience that involves learning about the other and tolerance.
An affiliated program to the Alternating Weekends is the Alternating Chanuka, intended for people wishing to light Chanuka candles in a different environment that what they are used to, expanding their circle of tolerance in society.
