Meet your new Colorado Field Manager: Jessica!

Please welcome Jessica, our Colorado Field Manager, to the OneTable team!

Jessica is joining the OneTable team with a breadth of creative and entrepreneurial experience. Under the artist name Jessica Sirena, she has been a professional singer, vocal coach and yoga teacher for the past 11 years and continues to share her music and her teaching. Originally from Miami, FL, Jessica graduated from Naropa University in Boulder with degrees in music and interdisciplinary performance. Since then, Jessica has combined her passions of music, mindfulness, creativity, and nature in a variety of community offerings around the US. In Miami Beach, she was known for curating monthly community song circles honoring the lineages and songs of traditions she’s studied from around the world. More recently, Jessica has been learning Jewish music and niggunim to share at Shabbat gatherings and in communities beyond. When Jessica isn’t making music, she can be found on a hiking trail soaking up sunshine, on the dance floor, practicing yoga or pilates, and taking her time sharing nourishing meals. Jessica has a passion for creating intentional and beautiful spaces that encourage fun, openness and connection. She is so thrilled to support the curation of Shabbat dinners in the Colorado area and can’t wait to meet you!

What brings you to OneTable?

Over the years, Shabbat has become more and more meaningful for me as a way to honor my ancestry and to connect with myself and my community. I always look forward to sharing a Shabbat with friends and making new ones at Shabbat dinners! Celebrating Shabbat creates the spaciousness, enjoyment and nourishment that help me stay inspired and full in the rest of my life. I’m excited to connect with so many wonderful people in Colorado around sharing Shabbat!

What one food are you bringing to a deserted island?

Young Thai coconuts, with a sturdy spoon to scoop out the inside.

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

I’m most looking forward to connecting with local Shabbat hosts and guests, and creating more community around sharing Shabbat!

What does Shabbat dinner mean to you?

Shabbat dinner means beautiful music, presence, celebration and nourishment for the soul.

What’s your favorite ritual?

Singing and harmonizing with friends around a fire. It’s simple and ancient. There is something so profound about honoring the spark of life together and singing. It brings me such deep joy.

Favorite challah, and can you bake it?

Freshly baked challah by someone I love, in almost any flavor. I want to learn how to bake it myself!

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.
