ChiTribe Shabbat Clusters

Shabbat Clusters are for people who are interested in joining a community for Shabbat, but they don’t have a place to go and want to meet new people.

ChiTribe Shabbat Clusters create community by gathering people by their interests, neighborhoods, and age to eat and celebrate Jewish life together.

Signing up for Shabbat Clusters

Believe it or not, signing up is easy – just fill out this form. When you sign up, we will match you with a group of ~15 other individuals who will meet for a monthly Shabbat dinner. 

Where Shabbat Clusters Happen

While people celebrate Shabbat in many places – like synagogues, community centers, even while traveling abroad and on Birthright trips, almost all these dinners will take place in the home of hosts in Chicago that are in your Shabbat cluster. Although – there is no obligation to host a dinner.

Partnership with OneTable

Hosts can utilize the OneTable platform for nourishment subsidies and other resources. ChiTribe is happy to be part of OneTable’s community. 

OneTable brings Shabbat to people in their 20s and 30s of all backgrounds. They believe that taking a step back, connecting with others, having moments of mindfulness, and enjoying great meals on a Friday night is important.

Find your Tribe

Shabbat clusters are a great way to create new make meaningful connections in the Jewish community. Also, we hope you will connect to this meaningful experience of Shabbat.

Shabbat clusters will be happening in the fall, but there are events happening in Chicago all the time that you can find on our calendar.

Groups are for singles and couples. Jews of all backgrounds are welcome. Clusters are formed based on location, age, and sometimes observance level and interests.
