JDC Entwine is partnering with OneTable to bring global Jewish communities to your table.

Global Shabbat Toolkit

For generations and for Jewish communities across the globe, Shabbat meals have offered the opportunity to bring together people in our lives to share in food, tradition, and conversation.

Entwine’s Global Shabbat Toolkit was created to help share experiences overseas with JDC Entwine in an interactive and meaningful way over Shabbat dinner. We provide all the items you need to set up a dinner for eight: Shabbat ritual items, resources on global communities, dynamic conversation prompts, and more! (And if you have more than eight guests, that’s ok too!)

Step One

Register for your own Global Shabbat Toolkit HERE.
