Sponsor an Oneg or Luncheon

Looking for a way to celebrate or honor a special occasion while supporting Judea Reform? You can sponsor a Friday evening oneg or a Saturday Shabbat Luncheon!

Sponsor a Friday Evening OnegSponsorship Cake

Oneg Shabbat (Hebrew for the “Joy of Sabbath”) is an informal gathering of Jews in a synagogue or private home to express outwardly the happiness of Shabbat.

Onegs at Judea Reform are opportunities for our community to come together and enjoy the sweetness of Shabbat with conversation and refreshments every Friday after services.

Sponsor a Saturday Shabbat Luncheon

In addition to weekly Friday night Shabbat services, Judea Reform offers a monthly Saturday Morning Shabbat Service and Luncheon. Services are warm and welcoming, as they are on Friday nights, and are characterized by plenty of interaction and discussion.

Following services, congregants make their way to the Levin Social Hall for a shared meal provided by JRC, attended by members new and old and often frequented by students from the seventh grade Darchei Mitzvah class.

To mark a special occasion of simcha, individuals or groups can choose to sponsor the luncheon component of this warm and welcoming community program. Your $250 sponsorship helps cover the cost for lunch and defray the cost of staff and security.
