Together at the Table: Celebrate Unity and Diversity This Shabbat

This Friday, August 18th, OneTable, The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, and Repair the World join together for Together at the Table, a celebration of unity and diversity in the face of fear and division.

It is hard to put into words how many of us feel following a weekend in which we witnessed white supremacists and neo-Nazis marching openly in America, leaving violence and tragedy in their wake. Regardless of where we each stand politically, we can ALL agree: hatred, bigotry and violence cannot be tolerated. When our civic and faith values are threatened in this way, we raise our voices and rise up—not just in opposition but in unity.

In this spirit, OneTable is joining with more than 65 partners to inspire and mobilize a grassroots movement of Shabbat meals across the country. These dinners are dedicated to celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion in the face of fear, division and hate. To engaging in constructive dialogue with diverse perspectives. To addressing deep, painful divides in our communities. To considering the role we must play in strengthening civil discourse and society.

Learn more about Together at the Table and the resources available here and please get involved and share.  Colorado OneTable Shabbat listings are here.

About Staff

They call me “NewsHound III,” because I’m a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
