Gala Kiddush February 20 Last year we decided to schedule a monthly hot Kiddush following the Main Minyan. as the cost of a private Kiddush has become prohibitive, the goal was to make a monthly communal Kiddush celebrating all the Smachot that month. Along with our annual sponsorships and Simcha sponsors, the cost of the Kiddushim becomes affordable to all and allows for a more friendly and social culture Shabbat mornings on a monthly basis.
