Our weekly Kiddush offers us the opportunity to come together as a community. We can socialize, catch up with friends, and relax together. These kiddushim are an integral part of our Shabbat morning service. In the interest of maintaining and elevating this time together, we are in need of more sponsors of the weekly Kiddush. Over the next few months, you may be receiving a call as you approach a family birthday or anniversary, asking you to take part in sponsoring the weekly Kiddush. While the standard Kiddush costs $350 we are interested in making this honor more available to the entire congregation. For $50, you can co-sponsor the Kiddush alongside others with birthdays or anniversaries at the same time. If you are able, please contact the shul office and consider Kiddush sponsorship as a way to continue to support our shul.
Sincerely, The Board of Directors
