Shabbat and Holidays

OneTable helps make Friday night dinner prep a breeze! This means people that are post-college/pre-family can take advantage of OneTable's Shabbat resources to host Friday night dinner or be a guest at one, too.

The OneTable website is a lot like Airbnb for Shabbat dinner. You can post a dinner, or sign up to attend one any week of the year. Keep your dinner private, semi-private, or make it totally public. Here's how it works: dinner hosts get a $15 credit per person (up to $150 per dinner) redeemed online for groceries or dinner delivery. Head over here to get started. 

If you want to bounce around some new ideas or have any questions about food prep, drink, or ritual, feel free to dial a OneTable Shabbat coach through the OneTable website.
