Sponsoring a Kiddush

Beit Sasson invites all members and guests to stay for Kiddush following Shabbat or Holiday morning services. These sometimes feature traditional Sephardic Shabbat cuisine like hamim and zhug – and they are always a time for reconnecting with friends and making new ones.

If you have a simcha or nahalah (azkara, yahrzeit), consider honoring the occasion by sponsoring a Shabbat morning Kiddush or Seuda Shlishit. For more information, contact our events coordinator Leann Shamash at lshamash@comcast.net or 617 527-7355.

Fee for a pareve kiddush:
Members $180
Non-members $260

Note that for large events (Bar Mitzvah, Shabbat Hatan/Kalla, etc..) we request a paid helper to help clean up the Social Hall for an additional cost of $100. Fee is waived if caterer provides waiters.

The fee covers:

  • Hamin, Israeli Salad, hard boiled eggs, an assortment of chips, crackers and hummus, cookies, dried fruit, fresh fruit, hot water for tea and coffee;
  • Various soda drinks;
  • Grape juice;
  • Kiddush Helpers whose job is to set up and clean up;
  • All paper goods.

If you wish to add to our Basic Kiddush you may choose from a variety of pareve or meat platters from an approved kosher caterer. These platters can be accessed by contacting one of our approved caterers (see list below). The synagogue can also directly arrange with the caterer if an expanded Kiddush is desired.
Some people may choose to add their own fruit and pareve pastries. Pastries must be purchased from the list of either approved caterers or approved kosher bakeries. Fruit must be whole and can only be cut at the synagogue. Leafy vegetables must be packaged and carry the approved hechshar. Other vegetables must be approved by our mashgiah.

Please note: NO COOKING IS ALLOWED AT THE SYNAGOGUE KITCHEN.

All food must be sealed, carry the proper hechshar and be approved by George Kirby, Synagogue mashgiah.  George can be contacted at George.Lori@verizon.net.

You also have the option of sponsoring Seuda Shlishit on Shabbat afternoon between Mincha and Arvit (March through October only).
