Meals & Celebrations


Library Minyan seeks to enrich our shabbt experience by providing kiddush lunch after morning services on shabbat and some holidays. The basic kiddush is provided as part of our membership benefits, and includes our renowned veggie cholent. On special occasions, a member of the kahal may sponsor a more sumptuous lunch. About six times per year the Library Minyan cosponsors a bigger lunch, along with members who are celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, or honoring yahrzeits. Occasionally members will volunteer to assemble a special lunch in the TBA kitchen themselves. You may donate to the kiddush fund at any time to help us continue these practices, or for a specific occasion. Follow the link for Kiddush Options below for more information on types of kiddush and how to donate. Send any questions to

Leading Kiddush

Kiddush is recited from the bimah at the end of services. Leading kiddush is one of the more accessible ways you can serve the minyan. Please contact any of the gabbaim if you would like to lead kiddush, or if you would like some help in learning how to lead kiddush.

 Kiddush committee

The kiddush committee seeks individuals interested in creative and inexpensive ways to enhance our kiddushim!  Please contact Kiddush Committee chairperson Carl Sunshine at to volunteer to help plan, shop, prepare and set up kiddushim or with any comments and suggestions that you might have.
