Sponsoring a Kiddush at Tremont Street

Sponsoring Kiddush is a great way to celebrate a simcha or to mark a special moment with the community. You can choose to sponsor the entire Kiddush for the shul or you may help to defray the cost of Kiddush by sponsoring a part of Kiddush like a special dessert, or by just making a donation. Be sure to contact the shul office or (617) 864-6388 if you want to sponsor Kiddush on a specific week or for a specific Parsha. If the details of a specific Kiddush have already been arranged, and you want to earmark your donation for that Kiddush, please use PayPal’s “Note to seller” option to indicate that.


The prices and menus are for a hamish, family-style sit-down kiddush assembled by the TBS kiddush committee. Our wonderful shul has a small kitchen with limited refrigerator space and therefore no room for prepared platters. All food is bought in bulk from our local kosher suppliers and is put together during services by shul volunteers.


For a custom catered Kiddush with freshly cut vegetables and fruit, salads, flowers and any of your favorites, we have our in-house caterer. For information, menus or a quote please email Barbara Model at:
