They’re Here: OneTable Zoom Backgrounds #TableGoals

Physical social distancing is hard, and some days (okay all days at the moment?) Zoom feels like one of the main things keeping us together. It’s changed how we WFH and—most importantly—how we connect over Shabbat dinner. Though most of us can’t be spending Friday night lighting candles at a beachside picnic, drinking in a rooftop soirée, or even just hanging in our apartments with friends, that doesn’t mean we can’t imagine we are.

Enter: our #tablegloals Zoom backgrounds. If you know, you know. If you don’t, it’s basically a virtual green screen when you video-chat. Here’s how to add them: First, download the images below (right click, save image). Then, in the bottom left corner of your Zoom window (while you’re Zooming), you’ll see an icon that says “Stop video.” Click the little arrow right next to it, and select “Choose a virtual background.” Then upload one or all of these!

Note: If you’re getting an error message, head to the top bar where it says “” and then check for updates. Once you update and open Zoom again, these should work no problem. Make sure both “Mirror my video” and “I have a green screen” are not checked (unless you have one, then props).

Plus, you know we’ve even got you for Passover.


OneTable empowers people who don’t yet have a consistent Shabbat dinner practice to build one that feels authentic, sustainable, and valuable. The OneTable community is funded to support people (21-39ish), not in undergraduate studies, and without an existing weekly Shabbat practice, looking to find and share this powerful experience.
