To sponsor a kiddush:
1) Check for the availability of your preferred date on the calendar below.
2) If your preferred date is in fact open, please submit the following information in the box at the bottom of the page:
Name / E-mail / Date of Kiddush / Reason for Sponsorship
3) Provide the food. A simple kiddush of cookies, cake, chips & dip (with drinks, grape juice and paper goods) can easily be bought at local supermarkets for under 500 NIS. If you prefer something more substantial, consider a caterer. Any kosher caterer is acceptable, though below are a couple of caterers who have provided kiddushim in the past and are thus familiar with Shir Hadash and our policies:
OF COURSE, you don’t need to hire a caterer if you don’t want. You can also purchase the food on your own (which, with the exception of uncooked fruits and vegetables, must be in sealed packages or from kosher supervised take-away places). You will then be responsible to bring the food (and drinks and paper goods) to the shul during a specific time on Friday afternoon.
