New York, meet your new Field Manager: Lilli!
Please welcome Lilli, our new New York Field Manager, to the OneTable team! Lilli is joining OneTable after graduating from Mount Holyoke College where she studied Religion and Entrepreneurship. Her interest in critical religious studies inspired her move to Israel for a year where she attended the Hebrew University and traveled around the country learning about the roots of some of the world’s most practiced religions. Lilli loves meeting new people, hearing their stories, and cultivating pluralistic and engaged Jewish communities wherever she goes. She is thrilled to join the OneTable team as the NYC Field Manager and to make lasting connections with guests and hosts using OneTable.
Reach out to say hi and get to know a little about her:
What brings you to OneTable?
I’m always searching for an inclusive and welcoming Jewish community and found that in OneTable. I wanted to be a part of a team that created accessible and sustaining Jewish rituals and communities for all kinds of people.
What one food are you bringing to a deserted island?
What’re you most looking forward to doing in your new role?
Connecting with hosts and guests!
What does Shabbat dinner mean to you?
For me, Shabbat dinner has always meant that I have a set time to reflect on my past week and focus on my intentions for the week to come. It also feels like a sacred time where I can practice being present and enjoy the company of the people around me. Of course, my favorite part is laughing, sharing stories, and eating the best food.
What’s your favorite ritual?
My favorite ritual is lighting candles on Shabbat. I like to think of my own practice of praying, setting intentions, and lighting the Shabbat candles as a small part of a huge chain reaction of all the other people who are lighting their candles on Friday night.
Favorite challah, and can you bake it?
Crumbled sugar challah. Can’t bake it but love to eat it.
