Custom Kiddush ($190 fee or more)
Custom Kiddushes must be pre-approved by CRO. In all cases, enough food should be ordered for a minimum of 120 people plus the number of anticipated guests. If kiddush is arranged directly by the sponsor, there is a mandatory fee of $190 to cover the synagogue's overhead expenses, such as custodial costs and building maintenance. If the sponsor opts to organize an outside caterer but have the synagogue cover the catering expenses, the sponsorship must be the equivalent to the catering cost incurred by the synagogue plus an additional 10% fee (capped at a maximum of $1,000), and must include the costs of waitstaff. If you are interested in sponsoring a custom kiddush, please contact the office.

CRO will work with you to include extra foods to enhance your sponsored kiddush.  Please notify the office two weeks in advance with what additional foods you want.  For example, we can order a special cake from our standard suppliers.  

Policy on multiple sponsors

When two or more individuals sponsor kiddush for the same occasion, they may divide the cost between them as co-sponsors. When two or more individuals each wish to sponsor kiddush for unrelated occasions, CRO policy is that each sponsor is asked to pay the full cost of kiddush minus a 10% sharing discount. The quality of kiddush that will actually be served will be matched approximately to the cumulative amount of the kiddush sponsorship level (e.g., if there are two sponsors at the standard level, a deluxe quality kiddush will be served.)

Ramath Orah strives to create a community based on achdut (unity) and inclusiveness. As such, we encourage sharing simchas and celebrations by permitting multiple sponsors for all kiddushes. With the exception of bar and bat mitzvahs, all kiddushes may be sponsored by multiple parties. We look forward to celebrating with you.

To sponsor a standard, deluxe, premium, or custom kiddush please contact our office.
