Elli Smerling(34)
New York, NY


My name is Elli Smerling. I grew up in Deerfield IL, and attended Camp Ramah in Wisconsin for many years. I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I majored in Communication Arts and Jewish Studies. I currently live in Manhattan and am an employee of Sirius XM Radio in music programming.

I love Shabbas dinner, yes I do, I love Shabbas dinner, so should you! For me Shabbat is a great way to unwind and reflect upon my week. I love cooking and hosting meals for my friends and family, giving them the opportunity to unwind and relax.

Starting out in the real world, it is not always possible to host big beautiful meals with a tight budget. I look forward to the opportunity to host multiple meals throughout the summer with the help of this great organization.
