HOW TO SPONSOR A KIDDUSH
To make reserving a Kiddush luncheon easier for our community, our website includes a Kiddush Sponsorship page. Just click here . You’ll see a list of several months’ worth of upcoming Sabbaths, in both English and Hebrew dates. The green boxes indicate Sabbaths that are available; red boxes indicate Sabbaths that are already sponsored. Click “Reserve,” and you will see a form to fill out including your contact information and the event for which you are sponsoring the Kiddush. You will also be asked to create a “4-digit PIN number;” this is your personal code to access your sponsorship information and make corrections if necessary. An email will be sent to the address you enter to confirm your reservation. That’s all there is to it!
HELPFUL TIPS FOR KIDDUSH SPONSORSHIP
A typical Kiddush at Chabad of Ann Arbor includes 25 – 45 people, plus friends or family whom you would like to invite to join us. Kiddush Luncheons for 45 people typically cost between $250 – $400. You may make your Kiddush as elaborate you wish, of course, and can augment the suggestions below. In addition, fresh cut flowers for the buffet table add to the Oneg Shabbat (enjoyment of the Sabbath) and are always welcome.

PREPARING THE KIDDUSH BUFFET
Please arrange to bring all items to the Chabad House on the
Thursday evening or Friday before, no later than early Friday
afternoon. Contact the Rabbi at 734-995-3276 or email
so that everything can be arranged in accordance with Sabbath
requirements. We ask that you allow yourself time to assist us in
preparing the platters of food then, to simplify preparations on the
Sabbath morning. If you wish to use special tableware, please
purchase disposable plates, utensils, etc., and bring them,
unopened, at the same time as the food items.
