Congregation Hakafa

Friday Evening Oneg Hosts

An oneg, hosted by members of the congregation, follows services every Friday night throughout the year.  Hosting a Friday evening oneg is a nice way to celebrate a bar/bat mitzvah, birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion with the congregation.  It is also a nice way to honor the memory of a loved one on his/her yahrzeit.  

Normally, responsibilities include bringing the food/drinks for the oneg, coming to services early to set-up, and staying afterwards to clean-up. Since we are meeting via Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing the opportunity for members to "sponsor" a virtual oneg.

Here's how it works:

  1. Choose a Friday night to sponsor, and sign up here or by contacting Suzanne Shore or Ilene Holt-Turner ([email protected]). If you'd like, you can list the charity that you will be donating to in the comment section of the sign-up.
  2. Make a donation to a charity about which you are passionate.
  3. Light the Shabbat candles that night at services (Sara will lead us all in the blessing, unless you would prefer to recite it yourself.).
  4. During announcements, you will be able to tell us about the place to which you donated.
  5. Hakafa will make a donation to that organization in your honor.
  6. Even if you cannot be at services that evening, we will tell participants about your cause, and Hakafa make the donation in your honor.
Location: via Zoom
