Since 2011, hundreds of campuses, primarily through their Hillels with supporting materials from ASF, have created Avi Shabbat experiences, generally around February 12th, the anniversary of Avi’s death. This annual event commemorates how one remarkable young man can and did make a difference on his campus. The Avi Shabbat, developed by each campus, includes the sharing of a communal Shabbat meal and a shared conversation incorporating one or both of the following two areas of interest:
- Promoting open and respectful discourse within the Jewish community, specifically surrounding conversations about Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian Relationship
- Fostering interfaith understanding and cross-cultural encounters
