Members who wish to prepare their own Kiddush or Seudah Shelisheet must pay a $150 kitchen fee. Without exception, an approved mashgiach (kosher supervisor) must be present at all times. If you wish to bring in an outside caterer for a synagogue event (kiddush) there is a $250 kitchen fee. In order to be permitted to use our kitchen, the caterer must arrange for an approved mashgiach to supervise its work. All fees have been set by the Board of Directors of the synagogue. Please speak with the Executive Director if you have any questions or would like further information.
