Making the Most of Your Friday Night

Interested in slowing down, unplugging from the week and building a community over Shabbat dinner with other young adults?

Through a new Shabbat initiative between The Associated’s Young Adult Division (YAD), Pearlstone and OneTable, young adults ages 22-39 can now host or attend Shabbat dinners anywhere in our community. 

Whether you are interested in meeting people at a Shabbat dinner in someone’s home, or are looking for a way to connect with a group of your peers virtually, we will help provide the meal and resources so you can make the most of your Friday night experience. And, unique to the Baltimore community, Pearlstone is offering custom Kosher, farm-to-table Shabbat menus redeemable for Shabbat Dinner Credits exclusive for OneTable hosts on certain dates. Meals will be available for pick up at a central location in Baltimore City on the afternoon of your Shabbat dinner.

How Does it Work?

Sign Up through OneTable. You’ll find different cities that OneTable offers Shabbat dinners. Choose Baltimore as your city to find available dinners. 

Join a table that fits what you’re looking for. Whether you are looking to meet people in your stage of life, or others with interests similar to you, explore the Shabbat dinner tables that are being hosted.

Get Excited to attend your Shabbat dinner and meet new people in the Baltimore Jewish community! 

Shabbat is every week so we encourage you to plan your Shabbat experience when it works best for you, even if it doesn’t align with dates Pearlstone is offering their farm-to-table option.
