About Us:

We want to help you celebrate Shabbat!

Plan your own Shabbat dinner, and invite at least 3 adults. They can be friends—or people you’d like to get to know better. The intention of this program is for you to create a community of your peers, so we encourage you to invite other interfaith couples and/or families to have Shabbat, though we believe that inviting guests from different backgrounds can help inspire a lively discussion about Shabbat and Jewish life, so feel free to cast a wide net.

We will reimburse you for up to $20 per adult and $10 per child (10 and under), for up to 10 adults and 10 children. Here’s how it works:

• Contact us at at least one week before the dinner. Put “Shabbat Dinner” in the subject line and make sure to include your name and a phone number where we can reach you.

• We’ll send you a sign-in sheet for guests and some Shabbat resources. Before dinner, take a picture with everyone around the dinner table and send it to us. Try to get as many of the participants in the picture as you can. We will use your picture on social media to inspire other people to take part in this program.

• What you serve is up to you – you can cook dinner yourself or order it from a restaurant or have it catered.

• Within two weeks after the dinner: email or snail mail us your picture, a list of your expenses with all receipts attached and a short description of the night (or post in our Facebook group

• You may host up to 3 dinners. Each dinner must be at least four weeks after a prior dinner.
