Shabbat Kiddush

Every Rabbi-led Saturday Service ends with a Kiddush. An opportunity for our congregation to socialize and enjoy a Kiddush table, in keeping with the injunction to delight in the Shabbat.

A list of member names is assigned to oversee each Shabbat Kiddush for each Saturday Service on the 2021-2022 calendar. Each member is assigned a corresponding number or code next to their name.  Codes correspond to the item(s) each member is responsible for bringing:

1)  Challah
2)  Fresh fruit or dried figs, dates.
3)  Cake and/or cookies
4)  Fruit juice – One large bottle and some water

At the bottom you will find the complete list of Kiddush duties. We anticipate 20 to 25 people each monthly session.  If it is a special occasion, we will ask people to bring more food or we will order sandwiches – The wine will be provided.

A List of Members Responsible for the Shabbat Kiddush will be contacted by phone.
