Shabbat Dinner Events
OneTable is looking for exceptional hosts to create Friday night dinner experiences through our Event Partnership program.
At OneTable our mission is simple: to inspire people to create their own Shabbat dinner experiences. We believe that at the Shabbat dinner table you can slow down, join together and celebrate what you love. You can connect with new people, new places and new traditions. So we provide resources to enable skilled hosts to create elevated experiences for guests.
We are seeking the most innovative event hosts out there and want to help bring to life your ideas for elevated Friday night dinner experiences. We are looking to expand our community and provide people with more opportunities to find a Shabbat dinner that feels authentic.
We are most interested in partnering with chefs, restaurateurs, influencers, bloggers and social entrepreneurs (individuals or teams), and have a preference towards independent initiatives rather than established institutions or organizations. We have limited partnership opportunities available to work with pluralistic Jewish or other community organizations.
Event Partnership dinners should take place on Friday nights, in creative spaces outside the home, be open to the public and ticketed. Selection is very competitive and will be based on creativity, willingness to try something new and proven ability to execute an event. Priority will be given to dinners open to guests within and beyond our network.
Event Partnership grants are not intended to support existing Shabbat programming. Grant funding will vary depending on the host’s city, number of guests, event expenses as detailed in projected budget and follow-through strategy. Event Partnerships must be in line with OneTable values, target the appropriate demographic and engage guests who would not regularly attend Shabbat dinners.
We can currently support events in our hub cities: Atlanta, Bay Area, Chicago, Denver/Boulder, DC, and New York. If you’re not in one of these cities, but think you have what it takes to create something awesome, contact Zoe.
In order to apply, please connect directly with OneTable’s Manager of Event Partnerships 6-8 weeks in advance of your proposed event.
