Kiddush Lunch

Have a Nosh and a Chat

We have a longstanding tradition* at Beth Am where congregants cook items to share at the Kiddush luncheon whenever we have a Sanctuary Shabbat (typically the first Shabbat each month, see calendar). This tradition enhances our sense of community, making Beth Am “Feel like Home.”  We need your participation to make this potluck a success!

Whatever your practice might be at home, we would love for you to share your culinary creativity — There are a few basic rules:

  • Each main dish should serve about 20 people (12 x 18 pan or larger)
  • The items must be brought to the synagogue in new, disposable, foil pans
  • All ingredients must be dairy or parve (containing no meat)
  • NO peanut or peanut related ingredients; pine nuts and walnuts are OK
  • Served room temperature preferred; if your dish needs to be heated, please bring to Beth Am by 10:30 am

If you would like to participate in preparing Kiddush Lunch, please contact the Synagogue Office to see when the next Kiddush date occurs.
