OneTable in the News
They love us, they really love us.
“[OneTable Shabbat made me] remember why civilizations form bonds beyond their families and enjoy others’ company. When a group of people connects, with just enough wine, there’s a release. It’s the feeling that you could sit at the table for hours and not want to check your iPhone. It sounds simple, but it felt like nothing short of a miracle.” – The New York Times
“OneTable offers a slew of resources — from guidance on Jewish ritual and hospitality to recipes and cooking classes — and it subsidizes the cost. It even offers “Shabbat coaches” who will meet with hosts and ask questions such as: “What do you want your guests to walk away from the night feeling?”” -Jewish Week
“…participating in Jewish traditions, even something as simple as a Shabbat dinner, makes me feel more connected to my Jewish identity. Now, the next time a friend asks me about my Judaism, I can proudly say I’ve studied in Israel, found a Jewish community, and even hosted my own Shabbat dinner.” -The Jewish Advocate
“There’s something so special about coming into someone’s home for a meal instead of going out, especially on a Friday. There’s no reservations, no paying a check, you can linger longer and play games at the end. It encourages you to walk around and not just talk to the people across from you.” -Crain’s Chicago Business
