Literally meaning, “Pleasure of Shabbat,” Oneg Shabbat is a gathering of the congregation, fulfilling a Mitzvah to celebrate Shabbat through fellowship, food, dressing up, and more.
Temple Beth Israel holds an Oneg Shabbat after services on Friday nights after the service. Members of the congregation, making use of the concept of Tzedakah, contribute to a sumptuous pot-luck dinner by bringing home-made parve, or Kosher dishes for everyone else to enjoy, members and visitors alike.
Below is a roster of names that were chosen to contribute with an Oneg after services.
Please make sure to contact Laurel Steinberg if you have any questions.
- The person(s) in charge of the Oneg will be responsible for setting up and cleaning up of the kitchen and dining area, as well as providing food and refreshments.
