FIDF Shabbat Dinners

Friends of the Israel Defense Forces is proud to partner with OneTable to bring unique and meaningful Shabbat experiences to 2018 Gringlas & Greenberg Rising Leaders, friends, and the broader Jewish community. Through dinners hosted by the 2018 Mission Alumni, we hope to empower the New York, Miami, and Los Angeles communities to form and deepen relationships with each other and strengthen their Jewish identity. We are excited to enhance your Shabbat experience. You are encouraged to utilize the resources provided below, receive one-on-one coaching from the OneTable hub managers, or reach out to your local FIDF professionals.

Please reach out to Danielle at 646-854-3071 or danielle.david@fidf.org if you have any questions.

HOW TO HOST AN FIDF SHABBAT DINNER:

  • Complete the OneTable hosting application.
  • Upon approval, post your dinner not later than the Monday prior to your event. Be creative – add a theme or meet at a special location. You must tag your event with FIDFShabbat so that others can find it.
  • Invite friends! Share the link to your dinner, post about it on social media, and start to prepare for your guests to arrive.

AS AN FIDF SHABBAT HOST, YOU RECEIVE:

Nourishment

In addition to our other Nourishment options, a unique nourishment option is available to FIDF hosts: book space!

If you’d like to host your Shabbat dinner in a larger space you can host in a local restaurant or book a different space for the dinner. Check out these options below, or let your Hub Manager know what you’d like to do.
