Kidddush - not current due to covid

Sponsoring kiddush is an excellent opportunity to celebrate your special occasion, or honor the memory of a departed loved one. Both members and non-members are welcome to sponsor kiddush. There is no preset sponsorship cost, rather you have the flexibility to purchase the food and drink of your choice that is within your budget and the theme of your sponsorship. (all foods must have an approved kashrut symbol). Kiddush can be dairy or pareve*.

In addition to sponsoring the kiddush after Shacharit services, the sponsor also provides the food for seuda shlishit (third Shabbat meal). Seuda shlishit must be pareve and should have an assortment of salads. Prepared salads from the kosher grocery or one of the kosher restaurants are preferred. Rolls for Hamotzi should also be provided.

Although we all pitch in, setup and cleanup of the kiddush and seuda shlishit is the responsibility of the sponsor. If you are unable to setup and cleanup either kiddush or seuda shlishit, please make arrangements for a friend or another community member to be responsible.

If you would like to sponsor Kiddush but not shop/set-up/clean-up, you can sponsor a Kiddush and the Kiddush committee will take care of everything. The cost for a dairy Kiddush is $250 and a meat Kiddush is $400.

Please contact Dan Arking (, Kiddush Coordinator, to reserve your date or for any kiddush related questions.

*If you wish to have a meat kiddush please contact Dan and Rabbi Elliot Kaplowitz ( Any event that is going to be more involved than a regular Kiddush (such as Bar / Bat Mitzvah) should be discussed with the Kiddush coordinator and the Executive Board.

Below is a list of suggested Kiddush items:

  • Snacks: 3-5 bags potato chips, corn chips, pretzels
  • Sweets: 4 bags cookies or dried fruit
  • Sides: 3-5 containers hummus, babaganoush, salsa, salads, olives, pickles
  • Soft drinks: 6 cartons juice, seltzer, or soda
  • A 32oz bottle of Kosher grape juice

Seudat shlishit:

  • rolls for ha'motzi, a few extra salads (Egg salad and or Tuna, approx one or 2 lbs of each--all pareve)
  • Veggies and fruit – Netivot people love carrots, celery, tomatoes, etc.

Please note: you do not need to purchase paper goods as they are stocked in the Kiddush prep area. Also, please check to see what foods are left over from the previous week before making your purchases.
