Shabbat is an opportunity to bring the things that matter to you to your table. June is PRIDE Month for most of the country. Juneteenth is in June. And Shabbat is always a time to bring people together around issues you care about, including our core values of joy, elevation, and welcoming others.
June is Pride Month for most of the country and there are many ways to bring Pride to the Shabbat dinner table, an opportunity to connect with friends old and new for elevated reflection. Check out our resources here – including a Pride guide with JQ International, a Lesbian Shabbat Guide with the Lesbian Bar Project, and a Queer Shabbat Guide made by OneTable hosts!
Together at the Table
Shabbat dinner is an opportunity to be in community, learn from and with one another, and begin to heal from the ills of antisemitism. We invite you to continue to join us by gathering people in your communities and networks for a Together at the Table dinner to engage in constructive dialogue with a plurality of perspectives, to address deep, painful divides in our communities, and to consider the role we can play in strengthening civil discourse and society.
Juneteenth Shabbat Resources
Visit our partner Be’Chol Lashon to find resources about the history and now of Juneteenth, discussion topics for your table, and sign up for the Juneteenth Kabbalat Shabbat with Rabbi Sandra Lawson.
Solidarity Shabbat Guide
Whether Friday night is a time to engage in powerful conversation, or a time to take a break from the work of change-making, this is just one of many ways we can amplify Black and Brown voices at our tables and prepare ourselves for the work — and the world — to come.
Mental Health Resources
May was Mental Health Awareness Month, and we’re inviting you to continue bringing the conversation around mental health to your Shabbat table. 1 in 5 adults in the United States experiences a mental health condition over the course of a given year (National Association of Mental Illness). That’s 46.6 million people annually. Your outreach, your dinner table, and your kindness may impact someone more than you know.
OneTable Live Events
Every Tuesday, we’ll be posting the schedule for that Friday’s OneTable Live. From group Shabbat cooking classes to virtual ritual to Trivia nights, we’re going to experiment, learn, and connect with all of you.
