At Congregation Beth Jacob our goal is to create a vibrant community that cares about, understands, and is committed to Judaism and V’ahavta l’re’echa kamocha, to love thy neighbor as thy self. In order to ensure the success of our programs, we need your support and commitment. Volunteering is a wonderful way to role model V’ahavta l’re’echa kamocha. As you model your own positive participation in our school and CBJ community, your children will respond with enthusiasm and embody the Jewish values we strive to impart upon our families. Your room parents will be contacting you for volunteer opportunities. Our hope and expectation is that every family participates.

Thank you for your interest in sponsoring a simple kiddush for Junior Congregation. It's easy, not expensive, and a mitzvah!
Please provide the following:
- 3 challahs with hecksure/kosher symbol -- you can find them at the JCC or Jewish day schools on Friday or at Molly Stones or Trader Joe's.
- 5-6 lbs or 6 packages of cookies with hecksure/kosher symbol (most packages are about 1 lb)
- two-50 oz WHITE grape juice bottles with hecksure/kosher symbol -- brands like Kedem or Manischevitz available at Safeway or Molly Stones
In the CBJ kitchen, locate the Jr. Congregation cupboard (as you enter from the social hall, the row of red cabinets on your left). There you'll find materials for and written directions to set up the kiddush. Although the directions will be posted, this is what you'll have to do: plate the cookies on platters, use the knife provided and cut challah into bite-sized squares and put on a napkin-lined basket, and pour approximately 50 kiddush cups of juice and place on the kiddush table on the far side of the social hall against the wall of windows. Laura, Lorna or Michal will be there to assist.
Set up is in the conference room/Beit Mifgash unless there is a chesed program that day. In that case, the Jr. Congregation kiddush is set up on one table in the social hall/Beit Kehillah.
Throw away table cover & cups and rinse platters in the kitchen.

Thank you for doing this mitzvah!
