Sponsor a Kiddush

Sponsoring a kiddush is a great way to commemorate any milestone from a birth, birthday, bar/bat mitzvah, anniversary, graduation, or a loved one’s yahrzeit.

A congregational kiddush not only provides a meaningful tribute to a loved one with an acknowledgment in the bulletins and a charitable donation receipt, it more importantly provides blessings to the family with the words spoken by friends, members, and attendees to the sponsoring family.

To commemorate your milestone with a congregational kiddush, please complete the following form to begin this simplified, hassle-free experience.

Alternatively, arrangements can be made directly with any COR Kosher Caterer in the city. Please discuss this with the office prior to ordering.

All food purchased for congregational-sponsored kiddushes and tax-receipted remains the property of the congregation and should not be removed.

PLEASE NOTE: Member announcements in the weekly bulletin must be submitted in writing by that family, with all relevant names and the occasion via email or fax to the office by Wed. mornings at 9am for publication in that upcoming week’s bulletin. We reserve the right to edit or exclude announcements that do not conform to our membership policies. 

This is the standard sponsored weekly kiddush including: 2 x half slabs of cake, Potato Kugel, Vegetarian Cholent, Pickled Herring, Assorted Crackers, hummus, babaganoush, Potato Chips, Small Fruit OR Vegetable platter, Plates, Napkins, White Plastic Disposable Tablecloths, Cups, Cutlery, Soda, Coffee, Tea.  This price includes waitstaff for setup and cleanup.

All deliveries, such as centrepieces or alcohol are to be brought to the synagogue no later than Friday noon of your Shabbat Kiddush weekend. Due to Shabbat, potted flowers or plants should NOT be used as centrepieces. Due to health, kashruth, Shabbat, & CRA regulations, kiddush-sponsored food remains the property of the synagogue and should not be removed from the synagogue.

To ensure the right quantity of food and appropriate service a 25% surcharge will be added for estimated guests over 30. 50% for 60+ extra guests.  As well, the additional wait staff will be required and will be charged at $30/hour at 4-hour minimum.  Providing as close to accurate numbers is in the best interest of all parties concerned as it maintains the proper decorum and professionalism expected by all in attendance. 

This amount will be billed to your credit card upon approval of the date and menu and the amount will be adjusted based on actual choices required and appropriate staffing requirements. The purchase is a tax-deductible donation and, as such, the food remains the property of the congregation.
