OneTable Live

Hey OneTable Fam, thanks for joining us in this virtual gathering place. We are so grateful to have you here. 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.

Some updates:
  • Jewish tradition teaches that saving one life is tantamount to saving the entire world, and we take this teaching seriously. As such, we may be slower to fully “reopen” than some other organizations. After 3 months of social distancing, OneTable will now support the following options:

FRIDAY | 6.19

This Friday is Juneteenth, a celebration of African-American freedom from slavery. Rabbi Sandra Lawson writes, “We are celebrating what it means to live freely in the United States and we also must remember that for many of us freedom is a journey. The fight for freedom for all is not over. There is still work to be done. Juneteenth is an important reminder to all of us of why we fight: The struggle for freedom for all must continue because until we are all free, none of us is free.”

This week, we’re taking the week off from OneTable Live programming to make space for you to create conversation and organize around your own tables, and to highlight Juneteenth learnings and events already happening across the country. Here are some places to start:

9pm ET/6pm PT | Shabbat Ritual with Aaron Leven on Instagram Live

FRIDAY | 6.5
While our Black community faces racism every day, this weekend was a particular reminder of how far we have to go. Right now, our hearts are aching and there is so much going on in our world that needs immediate energy and attention, so we have postponed any events for this week that don’t actively focus on intersectionality and social justice. If you’re hosting this week, attending one of the OneTable Live events below, or just looking for a moment in community this Friday night, join us on Instagram at 8pm ET/5pm PT as Kohenet Keshira haLev Fife creates a ritual space with the implicit kavannah, or intention, of helping us all slow down and ease into Shabbat, making space for prayers of healing and justice.

5pm ET/2pm PT | Sobremesa de Shabbat: A Night of Alfajores + Conversation
Share your stories and experiences of intersectional Latin American and Jewish identities while bringing in Shabbat with Latin American flavor. Jessy Cohen and Martina Bialek are teaching us how to make Alfajores — delicious Argentinian dulce de leche cookies. While we give the dough some time to rise we’ll chat about being Latinx and Jewish as a large group and then in more intimate groups based on interests. We’ll finish the night with a sweet Kabbalat Shabbat and some buena musica.

During the night we’ll have live performances, sketches, and small group breakouts where you can share about times you’ve used humor to get through a tough spot or to cope with these scary COVID times.
