Aliza Kline
OneTable Co-Founder and CEO

Aliza Kline is the Co-Founder and CEO of OneTable. At a time when many feel isolated and disconnected from Jewish life, OneTable creates new ways to connect with each other, time, and community by linking Jewish wisdom with modern technology. Founded in 2014, OneTable has grown to a national organization that engages tens of thousands Jewish young adults through peer-led Shabbat dinners. Since the onset of the Coronavirus pandemic, OneTable has expanded to serve the broader community – most recently by launching a platform to enable individuals to find alternative High Holiday celebrations. Also the founding executive director of Mayyim Hayyim (, Aliza has devoted her career to re-imagining Jewish ritual open to the full diversity of the community. She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her partner Bradley Solmsen and three daughters.
