Have you been here on Shabbat and seen the wonderful kiddushim Anthony, Corey, and Avery prepare?  You too can have one just like it.  Sponsor a kiddush for a milestone you have coming up, or a simcha you have, or just because.  You can co-sponsor one with some friends and share the cost.
Give the office a call and find out what you need to do to sponsor one of our Shabbat kiddush luncheons.  It's a wonderful way to celebrate something in your life with your Temple Israel family.
