PLEASE SIGN UP NOW TO SPONSOR A SHABBAT KIDDUSH
There is an old Jewish proverb that says, “worries go down better with soup.”
Enjoying a community Kiddush following services is one of the unique ways that we, at Kol Shofar, help to joyfully build our relationships and support each other. We have now started a new approach to providing food for our Shabbat Kiddush. This new procedure will be used for the 35 Kiddushes during this next year that are not programmatic celebrations or sponsored by a b’nei mitzvah family.
We have developed two menu levels with caterers who can prepare and drop off our kosher Kiddushes. Menus are $400 and $600 and each will feed 100 people. The $400 menu offers bagels, cream cheeses, salad or egg salad, fruit, and desserts; the $600 menu may include a frittata, hummus or small sandwiches. Kol Shofar will provide coffee and tea. For $200 or $300, one can co-sponsor a Kiddush at one of the above levels by finding another co-sponsor to share the day with you.
Alternatively, for those wishing to sponsor a Do-It-Yourself Kiddush, we have prepared a guide with shopping lists, simple menus, and quantities needed to make it easy for you. Please click here to download Kol Shofar’s kiddush guide (PDF). Our own Rabbi Susan Leider is serving as our Mashgiach (Kashrut supervisor) to help answer any questions you might have about ingredients or food preparation. Email your questions to email@example.com or call Rabbi Leider at 415-388-1818, ext 110.
Please consider sponsoring a Kiddush to celebrate a simcha or to honor or remember a special person. As always, the community is counting on its members to step forward to provide Kiddush; without sponsors on a given Shabbat, no Kiddush lunch will be provided.
To sponsor a Kiddush, please contact Marcy Levey-Klassen. Kiddush sponsorships will begin September 3. You may want to reserve a special date advance, but please call at least one week prior to a Kiddush to assure your sponsorship at 415.388.1818 ext 100 or email Marcy at Mlklassen@kolshofar.org and send your check to the synagogue.
Questions? Please contact Marcy Levey-Klassen (415) 388-1818, ext 100 or Mlklassen@kolshofar.org.
