Help Sponsor the Kiddush

Shabbat services start at 9:15 a.m. and are followed by a Shabbat Kiddush Luncheon at 12:00 p.m. 

Each week members of the community financially contribute to the kiddush lunch that is lovingly prepared by our volunteer kitchen crew. This is a wonderful way to mark a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary, to honor the memory of a loved one on a yarhzeit, or to honor other people. 

Ideally, there are multiple sponsors per week to help us cover food costs. We are grateful to all those who contribute to make these lovely community meals possible. There are two ways to contribute to the kiddush lunch:

Sponsors:  Sponsors contribute at least $180 towards the total cost of the kiddush lunch. There may be more than one sponsor on the same Shabbat to cover the costs.  The kitchen crew will prepare the lunch and add some special touches when the kiddush is being sponsored. Someone from the kitchen crew will reach out to find out if there are any special requests. Please keep in mind that special requests may or may not be possible to fulfill. 
Hosts: Hosts are the sole contributors to a specific Shabbat kiddush lunch. Hosts may choose to contribute the total cost of the kiddush and work with the kitchen crew to create a menu. Some hosts choose to purchase all ingredients and help to prepare the meal in the synagogue kitchen. Of course, all ingredients require approval and kashrut supervision by Rabbi Avi. If you choose to host a kiddush, please contact Lisa Schachter-Brooks at or call her at 520.233.7813 to discuss the details.

A special kosher cake can be ordered for the occasion at an additional cost. We will order and pick up the cake from Nadine's Bakery for you. The cake prices include writing and decorations of flowers or balloons at no extra charge, or scanned photos can be added starting at a $10 charge.
