kiddush and oneg Sponsorship

DC Minyan is proud to serve an exciting kiddush spread after most Shabbat morning services and on certain chagim. Kiddush, our after-services cocktail hour (without the cocktails), provides our community with time to meet new people and socialize with friends.

As a lay-led community, we appreciate any community sponsorship of these kiddushes. You can sponsor in honor of a family or life event, in memory of a loved one, or for no reason at all! To sponsor a kiddush in honor of a birthday, graduation, accomplishment, or any significant life event, or in commemoration of a yahrzeit (anniversary of a loved one’s death), please use the form below, and email with any questions. 

A regular kiddush sponsorship costs $250 and you can specify special snacks or drinks you want included. You can also supplement a regular kiddush with catered baked goods or cold food from local kosher bakeries, including Baked by Yael and Sunflower Bakery. Please email for those options and select "Other" from the menu below, or if you have other ideas that we can work with you on. 

In addition, we occasionally have an oneg following Friday night services, with light snacks and drinks. A Friday night oneg is a great time to meet members of the DC Minyan community and make connections with members old and new. For information about sponsoring an oneg and upcoming oneg dates, please email
