In Solidarity – Around the Shabbat Table

Shabbat is about imagining a better world. This week, we’re again reminded that Shabbat is a time for pause and rejuvenation, but also an opportunity to bring anti-racism focused action to Shabbat tables across the country.


As we gather, whether with housemates, on a virtual Shabbat gathering, or alone with our thoughts, let us consider how we can bring change to our table, continue to amplify Black voices, and prepare ourselves for the work — and the world — to come.


With deep gratitude to the voices in this collection and our partners at Repair the World, we also thank April N. Baskin – Joyous Justice for her guidance and poetry. The pursuit of justice is ongoing, and OneTable is committed to doing the work necessary for true equity in our society. We will continue to share words, art, reflections, and actions we can all take as we seek to create a better world.

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.
