Sponsor A Kiddush

Kiddush Policies:

  1. No outside food whatsoever is allowed in the Bait HaKnesset. Even if it is to be consumed solely by he who brings it.
  2. No one may enter the kitchen at any time without prior approval from the Rabbis OR Food Service Director.
  3. The Bait HaKnesset will no longer have a weekly meat kiddush. The Bait Haknesset offers weekly Kiddush of cookies/cakes and assorted rotating offerings. However, 2 types of meat kiddush are possible, but only if previously ordered through the office, and by filling out the form below.
  4. For larger Kiddushim when kitchen is in use, NO individuals are allowed in the kitchen during Kiddush, except the Food Services Director, Headwaiter, and the waiters who will serve the food.
  5. Sponsorships are welcome for all the above. Pleae note, when sponsoring the basic parve kiddush, NO changes may be made to the menu.
  6. In order to sponsor a kiddush, please fill out the form below at least 1-week prior to the date of the kiddush sponsorship in order to allow for enough time to prepare properly. The only way to arrange a sponsorship is through our office manager, Mrs Markovits, once the form is completed. As a reminder, a $250.00 non-refundable payment must be made after you have submitted the kiddush sponsorship form. 
  7. OSTC reserves the right to allow any additional sponsors for any Kiddush, at any time.
  8. Due to new OSTC policies, waiters must be hired for every Meat Kiddush. They will be provided by the Bait HaKnesset, and are included in the cost of the Kiddush. For more elaborate Kiddushim, please contact the shul office for the different options.
