Our Shabbat Tables

Fall/Spring 2016-2017
We invite you to join us for another round of Beth El’s popular Shabbat program. Once again we will be matching up families/couples/individuals to share Shabbat meals in each others’ homes. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Program Details:

1) Sign up to be a participant, and possibly a host too (not required). 

2) Beth El will match people based on shared demographics/interests for up to four Shabbat dinners. How many you participate in is up to you.

3) Beth El will provide the main course, side dishes, and dessert; as a host, all you have to do is pick up the food! As a guest, you’ll just be asked to bring one item: wine, juice; challah, salad or fruit.

Host Flexibility

  • Hosts can request families and invite families not in the program
  • Hosts will have the option to cook (Beth El reimburses a portion of the cost)

For participation in the Fall 2016/Spring 2017 round, we’re asking for a one-time payment of $36 per individual or $54 per couple/family, which will help offset the cost for all of the meals. This one time cost includes up to 5 meals! For those signing up for the June session only, the cost is $10 per individual or $18 per couple/family. Financial aid is available.
