CBS Sisterhood Catering

Kiddush Catering:

Our catering program is one of our biggest efforts through Sisterhood.  We offer affordable and competitively priced  kiddush lunches for bar and bat mitzvahs and other simchas.  We also provide weekly kiddush lunches on non-simcha weekends.  We always welcome sponsorships for our kiddush meals, so that we can offer a delectable meal to all who attend Shabbat services.  Come volunteer your time in the kitchen to help our caterer Jan Adler prepare a tasty meal.  We are there on Thursday mornings or Saturday mornings between 9:30 AM and 1:30 PM.  We schmooze, chat, cook and have fun.  All congregants are welcome to help out.  Do a mitzvah for the shul.


Meantime, we are presently offering Curbside Kiddush Brunch/Lunches every other week.  Check Beth Shalom weekly email for upcoming dates where you can order delicious lunches to take home.
