Kiddish Corps Volunteers

Kiddish Corps ... Volunteers of the Future!

The recent history of the Kiddish corps dates to the 95th and Wormall campus, when synagogue staff would prepare Oneg Shabbat, consisting primarily of challah and wine.

In 2002, the practice of preparing and serving food resumed under the leadership of Gertie Epstein and Rhea Salasche. Over the last few years, while the number of family simcha services including bar/bat mitzvahs has shifted, members of our congregation have continued the tradition to help prepare our meals, for about 35 Shabbatot annually.

Our current Kiddish corps volunteers remain a dedicated troupe! In addition to arriving at the synagogue about 8:30 am on Shabbat morning, to fully appreciate a true act of giving, current volunteers purchase all the foods for the kiddish, prepare, tray, and display the foods, as well as cleaning after each of us enjoys the meal and camaraderie following services.

Contact any member of this team when you are ready to be enlisted with this tremendous group!

Contribute to the Kiddush Fund or sponsor a Kiddush for an upcoming Family Simcha!

Many thanks to those volunteer congregants that regularly help with this endeavor!
