How to Sponsor a Shabbat Kiddush

Many people have enjoyed the delicious Kiddush lunches following Shabbat services each week. There are a variety of costs and lots of work required to present a lunch for our congregants. In order to continue serving the wonderful weekly Kiddushes, you can help offset the costs through sponsorship. There are different ways to sponsor a Kiddush lunch:

  • Donate to the Kiddush/Hiddur fund
  • Sponsor partially
  • Sponsor with others
  • Sponsor for a simcha
  • Sponsor just because you enjoy our lunches!

Thank you to all who have sponsored and donated already. We look forward to continuing this special tradition the congregation has created and supported after participating in Shabbat services.
