We all enjoy those wonderful Shabbat Kiddush Lunches that Bernard and his team, Warren and Robin, prepare for us each and every week. They do a fantastic job and the time that we get to spend together (now that we’re back) is very precious to us as a community. I’m sure you’ve seen in our Shabbat pamphlets that our weekly luncheons are partially sponsored through the Temple Beth-El Foundation – specifically, the Etta Caine Kiddush Luncheon Fund, the Ceitlin Family Kiddush Luncheon Fund, the Laufman Family Kiddush Luncheon Fund and the Sanders/Levey Fund. Together, these funds have provided just over $6,800 for the 21-22 year and we are most grateful. Also, we have been the very fortunate guests of some of our families who have had B’nai mitzvot this year and have provided some wonderful Kiddush meals.
But did you know that the cost of doing even a modest weekly Kiddush lunch is, at a minimum, $450 or more? That’s an annual cost of over $23,000. So even after the generosity of our Foundation, we must find ways to fund and support our weekly Kiddush lunches. We want to keep these good times rolling and the celebrations going!!
We are rolling out a new program and opportunities for TBE families to sponsor a special Kiddush lunch – and it couldn’t be easier. Introducing Celebrations!! TBE’s new sponsored Kiddush program. Special birthday? Happy Anniversary? Just Celebrating Life? Please consider celebrating with your TBE family. Sponsorship levels start with our Happy Days! ($450) package; or choose Celebrate Good Times ($650); and if it’s a real party, then It’s a Blow Out! ($850). Each level feeds 50-60 guests for the referenced price and varies depending on the entrée and salads included. Bernard has worked hard to provide a variety of choices at various price points and looks forward to helping you build your Kiddush.
Please contact the office for more information and all the details to sponsor your next celebration and let’s keep the party going!
