Kiddush Fund

The congregational kiddush is an opportunity for congregants and visitors to socialize and mingle after services, humbly serving an important congregational function.

Scotch and Arak Sponsorships

Kiddush is an enjoyable time to relax and catch up with friends, but at its core, kiddush requires the blessing over a glass of wine or other alcoholic (or permissible non-alcoholic) beverage. In addition to our weekly Kiddush sponsors and contributors we are also accepting scotch and arak sponsors  to add to the joy of our kiddushes.
