Kiddush Offerings


Kiddush Offerings

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.
