Hillel helped me tremendously during college; it was the only community where I felt I belonged and I don't think I would have graduated without it. If they believed in me as a leader, I felt I could also believe in myself as a leader. Hillel helped me gain confidence and connected me with people who made me feel cared about and valued.
Now, I am the Phoenix Community Ambassador for OneTable. OneTable empowers people who don’t yet have a consistent Shabbat dinner practice to build one that feels authentic, sustainable, and valuable. We support folks (21-39ish) to find, host, and share Shabbat dinners. We provide resources to make your Friday night extra special: support from your Field Manager (me!), Shabbat guides, and Nourishment (gift cards for food/cookbooks/ritual items or whatever you need to host — $10 per person, up to $300 per dinner!). If you're interested in becoming a host or connecting further, email aleeza@OneTable.org.
