Many people light the Shabbos candles at the table and then sit at it to eat their meal. I know that they often leave a Siddur or something else which is not Muktze at the table too. However as far as I know even if they did not leave a non Muktze item at the table, they can still eat at the table, they just can not move it.

First why and second the point was missed you are in A shul the sugyah I am looking for is in Avodah Zara I never knew this sugyah applied here too – SimchasTorah Jan 28 '11 at 7:14
What difference does it make if it is at home or in Shul? Muktza is allowed to be touched, it is not allowed to be moved. Your question was whether you can sit at the table and the answer is yes. Please post your answer from Avoda Zara, and often times there can be more than one answer. – Gershon Gold Jan 28 '11 at 14:23
