The Kiddush exists as an extension of the Shabbat Service. Our Congregation would like to encourage the feeling of community by having our families celebrate together.
To sponsor a full Kiddush there is a required Base Fee of $850.00. This fee includes set up, linens, center pieces, maintenance, kitchen staff, and food (basic Kiddush) for the congregation. A deposit must be made two (2) months prior to your Simcha. Full payment is required 2 weeks beforehand as well as a final guest count. Kiddush fees are payable by check or credit card. Credit card payments will be assessed a 3% surcharge.
BHCBE offers a Basic Kiddush with the opportunity to add a variety of a la carte enhancements. Wine, Grape Juice & Challah will be provided by BHCBE. It is requested that Kiddush Sponsors provide 2-3 bottles of Scotch &/or Bourbon. If any of your guests have any food allergies, please bring it to my attention as soon as possible. Every effort will be made to accommodate any dietary restrictions.
