OneTable Announces New Vice President of Growth
Tamara E. Cohen Joins OneTable to Lead Marketing and Communications Efforts
New York – OneTable, a national non-profit funded to support young adults (21-39ish) looking to find and share the powerful experience of a Shabbat dinner practice that is authentic, sustainable, and valuable, announced Tamara E. Cohen (she/her) as Vice President, Growth to continue the organization’s strategic and sustained growth.
“Adding Tammy to our team will enable OneTable to help more young adults nationwide build an authentic and meaningful Shabbat dinner practice,” said Emily Zussman, Director of People + Culture. “Tammy brings valuable experience and expertise that will expand our reach and provide more opportunities for our hosts and participants to build their Shabbat traditions.”
About Tamara E. Cohen (she/her): VP, Growth
Tammy joins OneTable after four years building and managing Remix Market NYC, the creative reuse center operated by The Junkluggers of NYC. While at Remix, Tammy built the foundation for a dual-mission business, establishing partnerships with dozens of local nonprofits, as well as expanding the retail arm into a top NYC destination for secondhand shoppers — all during a global pandemic. Prior to Remix, Tammy worked on Believe in Bambara, a food start-up dedicated to the commercialization of an underutilized legume. She also spent four years in business development, sales and customer success at PandoLogic, an Israeli start-up in the recruitment tech industry. Tammy is profoundly committed to the ideals of sustainability and social and economic justice and is driven by her strong Jewish identity.
In her free time, Tammy can be found rediscovering Broward County, FL, where she recently relocated after a lifetime away. She holds a BS in Entrepreneurship and Emerging Enterprises from Syracuse University and a MA in Global Migration and Policy from Tel Aviv University. Tammy is psyched to join the OneTable team and to bring her expertise in building hybrid communities nationwide in her new role as VP of Growth at OneTable.
“We are certainly excited about the growth and new perspectives Tammy brings to OneTable,” continued Zussman. “She will make a unique and important impact on the organization as we work towards supporting more young adults in their Shabbat practice.”
OneTable empowers people who don’t yet have a consistent Shabbat dinner practice to build one that feels authentic, sustainable, and valuable. OneTable is a national nonprofit funded to support people (21-39ish) looking to find and share this powerful experience. We envision a whole generation of slowing down, joining together, unplugging from the week, creating intention in their lives, and building meaningful communities. onetable.org
