Hey OneTable Fam, thanks for joining us in this virtual gathering place. We are so grateful to have you here.
- Please only host the people you live with, or host a virtual Shabbat. We’ve lifted the restrictions on the minimum of people needed to host a OneTable dinner. We’re here to nourish you and your roommate(s), or even just you creating the space to make your Friday night a little special. We’re updating our tech to best support you in hosting virtual gatherings to welcome Shabbat. Updates will be shared in this group and at onetable.org/shabbatshalone/
- Every Tuesday, we’ll be posting the schedule for that Friday’s OneTable Live. From group Shabbat cooking classes to virtual ritual to Trivia nights, we’re going to experiment, learn, and connect with all of you.
- We know some people are experiencing difficulties accessing grocery stores at the moment. Feel free to just watch-along with any cooking streams we offer, and we’re compiling a list of ways people with more resources can help out those who need community and assistance the most right now. We’ll post this list soon.

7:15pm-8:15pm EDT | Together We Flow: A Virtual Yoga Shabbat Experience
Sweet dynamic movement, selective stillness, and traditional Friday night blessings. Like the candles we will continue to light, we will warm ourselves with asanas; like the wine we will continue to raise, we will flow with abundance; and like the challah we will continue to bake, break, and share, we will rise up in resiliency, together. This event has limited space, sign up here to reserve your spot.
