B'nai Mitzvah guide - Meals

Eating Together

The first word in the name of our synagogue is “Congregation.” Here at Congregation Shearith Israel it is our mission to create meaningful and lasting Jewish experiences and connections to others. We accomplish this through our sense of passion and feelings of warmth in our place of comfort and celebration.

All Simchas promote a sense of connection and community. In this regard, the most basic mitzvah we can perform is to break bread with our family, friends, and fellow congregants. It is with this in mind that the family of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah hosts the Kiddush luncheon.

Please note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, no meals are served at the Synagogue.


Friday Evening Shabbat Dinner

If you choose to have your Friday Evening Shabbat dinner at Shearith Israel, please contact Jodi Salomon, our Executive Director to reserve either Social Hall.

Shabbat Morning Kiddush Luncheon

Families of the Bar/Bat Mitzvah at Shearith Israel host the Kiddush luncheon at the conclusion of their Bar/Bat Mitzvah Shabbat Service. Arrangements should be provided for 75 - 100 regular Shearith Israel congregants in addition to your invited guests.

Sisterhood Simchas is a cooperative-style program in which Sisterhood members create festive Kiddush meals for Bar/Bat Mitzvah families. Members volunteer for other members' simchas by shopping, cooking, or supervising serving staff. Families accumulate volunteer hours prior to their own event. In return, Sisterhood caters their kiddush for the cost of food, supplies and a nominal donation. Join our growing Simcha community, meet people, have fun, get tips on how to plan your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and help others make their simcha special. This program is on hold during the pandemic.

Any questions regarding food requirements and fees should be directed to our Executive Director, Jodi Salomon at / 404-873-1743.
