Sponsor an entire Oneg

Program contact
Andi Kupferberg |

Congregation Shma Koleinu is the congregation most likely to be confused with "Cheers," the fictional bar of the same name where "Everybody Knows Your Name."

When folks arrive for Shabbat at CSK at 6 p.m., our evening does not first begin with services but instead begins with drinks and appetizers. A time to schmooze with old friends and get to know new ones. A time to decompress from our hectic week and gently transition into Shabbat mode. Then at 6:30 pm, we enter into our next Shabbat "stage" with celebration and prayer.  

And what a great opportunity this presents to you!  In celebration of a special person or occasion or to honor the memory of a loved one, we invite you to sponsor a CSK Oneg.

To make sponsorship both fun and stress-free, we are offering the following Oneg Sponsorship Packages.  As there is no “one size fits all” Oneg, you can choose whatever works best for you!  With all four packages, our Shma Koleinu Volunteer Oneg Team will provide all ritual items, set up and breakdown, as well as all disposable paper products, beer, wine, and water.

  • Bring-Your-Own Oneg  — With this option, the sponsor provides 2-3 group size appetizers. If you love to cook and entertain, this option is for you!  This does not require a monetary contribution.

  • Chai Oneg — $180. This option is similar to the Bring-Your-Own Oneg but without the prepping or schlepping.  A CSK volunteer would provide the appetizers on your behalf.

  • Got-a-Simcha Oneg — $250. Menu to be determined. This option is a bit nicer and / or more substantial than the Chai Oneg.

  • Sky’s-the-Limit Oneg – The Oneg sponsor and our special events coordinator, Andi Kupferberg, will meet to plan a special Oneg to fit the desires and tastes of the sponsor.
