Kiddush at B'nai

Every Shabbat, B'nai Israel offers its congregants a kiddush reception following services. We are so pleased to create food and fellowship every week. The costs of the food and plates, utensils, table clothes, etc are significant so we have created a Kiddush Fund to cover these expenses. We encourage donations to the Kiddush Fund and if you are commemorating a yahrzeit, bar- or bat-mitzvah, wedding, anniversary, birthday, and other special occasion, we are happy to recognize it publicly on that specific Shabbat. We are blessed to have many simchas at B'nai so you may share recognition with another congregant.  

E-mail office@jewishdowntown.org or call 410-732-5454 to schedule.
