Meet your new Regional Field Manager: Jordan!

Please welcome Jordan, our Regional Field Manager, to the OneTable team!

Jordan is joining OneTable as the Regional Field Manager for Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, after five years of working in k-12 and higher education as a Spanish teacher and study abroad advisor. Jordan just completed her MA in Second Language Acquisition, Policy, and Culture and before that, her BA in Spanish. Now that she’s no longer studying, Jordan spends her free time playing guitar, playing piano, singing, painting, and traveling. Jordan grew up in the Indianapolis area. After moving to Cincinnati for a temporary job at a summer camp, she fell in love with the city and moved there permanently. Some of her life goals include writing a book and visiting all 50 united states. Jordan is a big believer in the power of community and her goal is to strengthen the Cincinnati and Pittsburgh Jewish communities through mindful and meaningful shabbat dinners.

What brings you to OneTable?

A friend in another Jewish organization told me such amazing things about OneTable and encouraged me to apply. Previously I was in the field of K-12 education and was looking for a change.

What one food are you bringing to a deserted island?

Pizza!

What’re you most looking forward to doing in your new role?

I can’t wait to begin making more connections and meeting people in my region’s Jewish community.

What does Shabbat dinner mean to you?

It means that I get to take a deep breath and focus on food, friends, and family and have a small celebration to look forward to every week.

What’s your favorite ritual?

My favorite ritual is lighting the Chanukah candles because it always reminds me of my grandparents coming to visit and my grandma’s latkes.

Favorite challah, and can you bake it?

My favorite challah is one I once had with chocolate chips! But I can’t make it myself yet.

Create your own OneTable Shabbat dinner plans this week!

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.
