SPONSOR A KIDDUSH
CAN I BRING HOMEMADE FOOD?
Kiddush is said on Yom Tov and on Friday night before the meal to welcome Shabbat. It is also a Mitzvah to declare verbally the separation between the normal weekday and the Holy seventh day of Shabbat. This is done by holding a cup of wine and saying a blessing.
After Shabbat morning service, the Shul holds a luncheon/reception, which is also called a "Kiddush". It is called a Kiddush because it is preceded after saying the blessing for the wine. The Kiddush is usually sponsored by a member of the congregation in memory of a beloved loved one, in honor of a Simcha, for their football team scoring the winning goal, or for any reason!
At Finsbury Park Synagogue, we have a sponsored Kiddush every Shabbat!
WHAT IS A KIDDUSH?
Unfortunately, no. All foods must be pre-packed and sealed and under Kashrut supervision.
BOOKING A KIDDUSH
DO I HAVE TO ORDER FROM YOUR MENU OR CAN I PURCHASE THE FOOD MYSELF?
You may purchase pre-packed and sealed foods yourself that are under Kashrut supervision (Meat products must be discussed with us prior). Any opened or unsealed foods will not be permitted. You must purchase enough for minimum 30 people. Alcoholic drinks must be provided by you. You will still need to book date with us, so please contact us first.
CAN I BOOK A CATERER?
Yes. We work together with numerous Kosher caterers in the area. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SPONSOR A KIDDUSH?
If you would like to sponsor a Kiddush, please let us know the date as soon as possible. If someone has already booked the date you requested, it will be possible to make a joint Kiddush if that date is specifically for an occasion-don't worry!
Please have a look at our Kiddush Menu with guideline prices. Prices are set for approx 25-30 people as standard. This can be doubled if required.
Please email us your Kiddush options and the Shabbat you would like to sponsor.
Payment for your Kiddush should be made no later than the Wednesday prior to your sponsored Shabbat Kiddush. If catering is selected, payment is required when booking.
