Kol HaLev

Kiddush Sign-Up

Open dates: 5/26, 6/28, 7/6, 7/13, 7/26, 7/27

Dear Kol HaLev chaverim (friends):
Our community kiddushim (plural of kiddishm the prayers over wine and challah, and the meal that follows) are a high point in the communal life our congregation, a time when we can come together to nourish our souls, hearts, and friendships, as well as our bellies. This is why all Kol HaLev members take a turn hosting Kiddush at least once a year, even if they are not regular service attendees.

At Kol HaLev, kiddush host(s) set out the wine, grape juice and challah before the service ends. Most people provide an additional nosh, as simple as humus and chips or cut-up veggies or fruit or more substantial fare (bagels with cream cheese, cheese or tuna/egg salad with crackers or assorted dessert, espcially if hosting kiddush in honor of a celebration. NB: All food service during kiddush must be dairy or parve and nut-free.

For more details, download the complete, recently-revised instructions for hosting kiddush, including set-up, clean-up and food suggestion:  Shabbat Morning KiddushFriday Night/Kabbalat Shabbat Potlucks and Non-Friday Night Potlucks.

If you've never been to kiddush, drop in for kiddush on a Saturday and see what it's like. (Members are always invited to attend kidddush without without attending services.)

Scroll down the lists of dates until you find an open date you want. Log in and sign-up. Make a note of the date; you'll also receive an emailed reminder from the office as your date approaches.

Some dates have need one kiddush host; others need two. This is because attendance is higher at Shabbat services which coincide with Hagiga, our children's education program. If you'd like to co-host a large Kiddush on your own, simply enter your name in both slots. If you'd like to increase the number of co-hosts, you can add a second or third slot if needed. 


Once you've signed up to host a kiddush , YOU CANNOT CANCEL! According to our kiddush policy, YOU are responsible for making sure your kiddush date is covered. It is usally not difficult to find another member willing to switch dates with you or a friend willing to cover your kiddish date for you. Here's how:

1. Examine the names of those members already signed up here. Contact someone hosting on a date that's good for and ask them to switch with you. (You may have to negotiate a three-way switch to get everyone a date they want).
2.  Find someone who has not yet signed and offer them your spot. Compare the names of those signed up here against our membership list.
3. If you make a good-faith effort to find someone to trade with or cover for you, you may ask Deb in the office  to assist you.

  "It's the day before I'm supposed host kiddush and I'm sick"! Ccontact Deb to let her know; someone will find members to step in.
  "I accidentally signed up on the wrong date!"  Immediately sign up for the right date; immediately email [email protected] with the correct date and the date chose accidentally.
