About Us

OneTable is Friday night magic. We’re a national nonprofit. We offer ritual guides, cards, and Coaches to make Shabbat dinner accessible and habitual. There’s an iOS app and a platform to help you find one another. We’re leveraging corporate partnerships and meaningful partnerships with other organizations to bring you the resources you need as a guest and a host.

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 Shabbat dinner practice, looking to find and share this powerful experience. We make it easy for hosts to welcome people to a Shabbat dinner at home, for guests to savor a Friday meal and for all to experience unique events for Shabbat dinner out. Guests of any and all religions and cultures are welcome. There’s nothing better than a great dinner with people you love. Join us for slowing down, joining together, and sharing stories. Join us for new connections and moments of meaning.

OneTable Shabbat Offerings

  • Ritual Guides and Resources: From recordings of blessings to printable ritual guides, icebreakers, and recipes, our Resource Library has everything hosts need!
  • Nourishment Credits: OneTable provides a Nourishment credit to qualified hosts of $10 or $15 per person with a maximum of $100 or $150 per dinner, depending on the number of guests and type of dinner. These credits can be applied to resources such as FreshDirect, Seamless, Whole Foods Market, Modern Tribe, and more.
  • Shabbat Coaches: One-on-one support where each host can explore the questions or challenges he or she faces when hosting a Jewish ritual.
  • “Nosh:pitality”: Fun events where our community comes together to learn things such as cooking, challah baking, cocktail making, and ritual facilitation.
  • Welcoming Spaces: For multiple, individually hosted dinners that take place at the same time. An example of a welcoming space is the rooftop of the JCC in Manhattan where 15 hosts can reserve a table, invite friends, and be provided with wine, challah and dessert, plus live music and the opportunity to meet more than 100 other hosts and guests.

Safety & Shabbat Community Standards

We work to ensure that all OneTable staff, users of the OneTable platform, and participants of OneTable events feel welcome and safe. Our platform is dedicated to facilitating a positive, welcoming Shabbat dinner experience.

Community building is made possible in safe environments. We take safety very seriously. We do not tolerate harassment or disrespect of OneTable participants or staff in any form.

The OneTable workplace follows the strictest legal guidelines and ethical standards to offer an office culture that is equitable, safe, and nurturing to each individual. We adhere to the highest standards for prevention, education, and training. OneTable strives to be a leader in offering resources and knowledge to our team to assure these measures are consistently implemented and effective.

Our Codes of Conduct are based on our core values, and we ask our participants to follow both the word and spirit of it, keeping in mind that each of us is an important part of community-building and Shabbat-celebrating. It is crucial to our mission that each person feels respected and that everyone comes to each OneTable associated space with their best intentions.
