Nourishing Passover Seders + Shabbat Dinners April 5-7
Who are your people? How do you want to invite them this year?
OneTable is Nourishing Seders on April 5 + 6 and Passover Shabbat dinners on April 7! OneTable hosts can receive Nourishment ($10/person, up to $300 per dinner) for one Seder (1st or 2nd night — your choice!) and one Passover Shabbat.
We encourage you to share the love + open up your table to as many Passover guests as you can! If you post two Seders, you’ll receive Nourishment for the one with the most guests.
Plus, we’re still Nourishing Shabbat dinners on Friday, April 14 (and all year round!). Our offices will be closed for the end of Passover on April 12 + 13, so if you’re hosting Shabbat dinner on April 14:
- Post your dinner and select Nourishment by Tuesday, April 4 at 11:59 pm.
- Get your RSVPs in by Wednesday, April 5 11:59 pm.
Jewish wisdom tells us to open our tables to our neighbors, those dwelling nearby. Coming together and sharing festive meals with friends, family, and the greater community is just as much a part of the Passover ritual as the uttering of the 10 plagues.
Shabbat is an invitation to rest after the work of creation all week long, and a reminder of our liberation from slavery in Egypt. The essence of any Passover Seder is that story. We gather around our tables to dine together, reflect on a history from thousands of years ago, and think about the freedoms (and struggles) of today.
Allow OneTable to help you set the table, raise your glass, and tell your story. We’ve pulled together resources to support you in any way you need — be it more Seder inspiration, Nourishment, or conversation topics to make your Seder + Passover Shabbat nights to truly savor. Post to host your very own Seder today.

How does hosting a Seder or Shabbat with OneTable work?

Shabbat dinners on April 14 must be posted on the platform by Tuesday, April 4 at 11:59pm local time.
What is Nourishment?
Nourishment is a financial gift OneTable offers hosts to elevate their dinners. It comes in the form of digital gift cards and is not meant to cover the full cost of the dinner. We also offer Books as Nourishment — a great option for recipes and framing to help you plan your dinner! Extra Nourishment can be donated back to OneTable. The return of your extra Nourishment money to OneTable will help us Nourish even more Friday night Shabbat dinners across the country, and provide everyone who wants one a seat at the table.
Dinners are eligible for $10/seat up to $300 for Shabbat and 1st or 2nd night Seders.
When do I need to choose my Nourishment?
The deadline to select Nourishment is Tuesday, March 28 for dinners on April 5-7. You will be Nourished for the number of guests you have signed up by Wednesday, March 29, at 11:59pm local time.
Can I host more than once during Passover?
You can receive Nourishment for one Seder (on April 5 or 6) and Passover Shabbat (on April 7). If you post Seders for both April 5 + 6, you’ll receive Nourishment for the Seder that has the most RSVPs.
Can I have my parents/kids/non-Jewish friends at my table?
OneTable empowers young adults in their 20s and 30s to build community and deepen their Jewish practice by gathering for peer-led Shabbat dinners.
That being said, we know Passover is a major holiday, and we want you to spend it with the people who YOU want to celebrate with – guests of any and all religions and cultures are welcome, as well as folks of all ages.
