 Host a Shabbat Dinner 


OneTable is Friday night magic. We’re a national nonprofit. We offer ritual guides, cards, and Coaches to make Shabbat dinner accessible and habitual. There’s an iOS app and a platform to help you find one another. We’re leveraging corporate partnerships and meaningful partnerships with other organizations to bring you the resources you need as a guest and a host.

OneTable empowers people who don’t yet have a consistent Shabbat dinner practice to build one that feels authentic, sustainable, and valuable. The OneTable community is funded to support people (21-39ish), not in college, and without children, looking to find and share this powerful experience. We make it easy for hosts to welcome people to a Shabbat dinner at home, for guests to savor a Friday meal and for all to experience unique events for Shabbat dinner out. Guests of any and all religions and cultures are welcome. There’s nothing better than a great dinner with people you love. Join us for slowing down, joining together, and sharing stories. Join us for new connections and moments of meaning.

  • Nourishment Credits: OneTable provides a Nourishment credit to qualified hosts of $10 or $15 per person with a maximum of $100 or $150 per dinner, depending on the number of guests and type of dinner.
