Interested in joining a community for Shabbat, don’t know where to start? Looking to meet new people?

“ChiTribe’s Shabbat clusters are a great way to bring unengaged and unaffiliated Jews into the community. From the 3 cluster shabbats I attended, I was able to meet new people and start building organic and Jewish centric relationships. ChiTribe helps make these shabbats feel intimate, exciting, and comforting through an emphasis on inclusion and pride in being Jewish.” – Jonathan Kamel


Sign Up for ChiTribe Shabbat Clusters and create community and new connections over great food. Eat and celebrate Jewish life together. After the first round of successful clusters, ChiTribe will be organizing the winter round 2019! 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.    

The first 3 months of the program will have set dates for when the same group of clusters will gather hosted by participants. In order for Shabbat Clusters to be successful, we like to have a critical mass of 12-25 people so you will be asked to rank your top 3 choices. Not every cluster will be gathering this round, but we are raising awareness for the many options in ChiTown.

Hosting Shabbat is a rewarding, meaningful experience. It’s a fun, relaxed way to meet and connect with other young people in the Jewish community – Hayley Levitan
