How It Works

Welcome to new friends and new flavors, to rich aromas, fresh bread and two single flames.

STEP 1: Set your Intention

It’s Friday night. How do you put down your work in order to pick up your spirits? How do you create space for food, for friends, and for yourself? At OneTable, you explore these questions with personalized one-on-one support from a Shabbat Coach. Let’s get a coffee or grab a beer and talk about you, your life, and what Shabbat dinner has to do with it.

STEP 2: Post to Host

Post your dinner. Invite your friends or make it open, where anyone is welcome at your table! For more instructions click here.

STEP 3: Nourishment

Choose what type of nourishment you want when posting your meal, and your local Hub Manager will contact you by email to go over your Nourishment options.* You must post your dinner on the OneTable platform no later than the Tuesday before your dinner in order to be nourished for that Friday night.


STEP 4: Invite Guests

Your dinner is posted, your Nourishment is set. Invite your friends, and consider saving seats for fresh faces! When guests book a seat, they simply enter their name and email address.


STEP 5: Dinner Time

Check in with your guests a day or two before your dinner and make sure they know when and where to arrive. Breathe. You’ve got this. The table is set and your preparation will pay off. Your guests feel at home, cared for, and excited to be with you. Welcome Shabbat dinner. Welcome happy.

*OneTable partners with different on-demand services to make hosting easier. Currently, hosts choose from a range of Nourishment options like ordering from Seamless, getting groceries delivered via Instacart, or picking out table decor on Etsy. OneTable provides credit of $10-$15 per person (with a maximum of $150 per dinner) depending on the number of guests, dinners require at least four guests to be nourished, for a minimum of five people at the table.

Once you apply to be a Host you will be able to access the OneTable social dining platform to help you create, organize your meal, manage RSVPs, develop your unique Shabbat dinner style, and join the community of Hosts.
