Onegs and Kiddushes

Festive Oneg in CBE LobbyQuicklink: Donate to honor your simcha(s) now

It is customary to end Shabbat morning and holiday services by joining together as a community to bless the wine (make Kiddush) and the bread (make hamotzi), and to enjoy good food and company. This is referred to as the Kiddush. Similarly, at the conclusion of Friday evening services we gather for an Oneg Shabbat, where we bless the wine & bread and share light refreshments.

Helping support these weekly community events is a wonderful way to celebrate a simcha or to mark a special moment in one’s life, or to honor someone. 

Your suggested minimum contribution of $54 for each simcha will be acknowledged in the lobby, on the website and in the Shofar newsletter, and helps the community know you and to share important moments in your life. It is also a way to say thank you to your community.

To make your contribution, you can

  • Download the printable form and return it with your check, or
  • Log into your CBE ShulCloud account and go to (or choose the Donate or Pay tile). Choose "Payment is...a donation," then use the "type" dropdown to choose "Oneg-Kiddush Sponsor" for the month of your simcha. Then choose "in honor of" in the dedication area and let us know what simcha you are honoring. 

If you would like to mark your simcha by sponsoring an entire Oneg or Kiddush, please email
