Oneg Shabbat - Sign up Today!

Sponsor an Oneg Shabbat!  By Terri Gaines, Board of Trustees Member

In 2018 we asked the congregation to help make our Friday nights a little sweeter by sponsoring an Oneg Shabbat. And, as is so often the case in our generous community … you responded!

As we begin 2019 our Oneg calendar is wide open, and it’s time to fill it up. Sponsoring an Oneg is a great (and delicious) way to honor a birthday, a yahrzeit, a promotion, or any life-cycle event. You can sponsor an Oneg either individually or with a group. You can either bring goodies (enough for 75 people) or make a donation ($100) to the Oneg Shabbat Fund. You can set up the food yourself or just drop it off on Friday. Oneg sponsors are acknowledged in the Shabbat flyer. Of course, any donations to the Oneg Shabbat Fund are welcome!

To sign up for an Oneg, please contact me at tlgaines0@gmail.com or Dean Sinander (Facilities and Operations) at operations@bnais.com.

Ode to Oneg
By Jody Prunier (Board of Trustees Member)

The Oneg comes on Friday night
And B'nai Israel wants to make it right.
With cheeses, veggies, challah, and sweets,
The Oneg is the place to meet.

We see family or friends ... make new ones, too.
In fact we're re-inviting YOU.
After singing and praying we like to eat.
Some stand and talk, some take a seat.

So where does all that food come from?
This question really is not so dumb.
Our members sponsor Onegs, they do!
Long-standing members and even some new.

The Oneg is sponsored for celebrations of things
Like marriages, memories, new engagement rings,
And babies, committees, new homes, and so on.
Better get to that Oneg before the treats are all gone.

It's a Mitzvah to sponsor the Oneg one day.
It even gets you to come here and pray!
Bring simcha and joy to yourself (and more) –
Sponsor an Oneg if you've not done it before.
