The oneg is defined as a celebration in honor of the Sabbath, literally, “Sabbath Delight.” At Sinai Temple, the congregation has the honor and pleasure of hosting our own onegs, every Friday night of the year. We “sign up” for onegs in honor of our parents, our children and ourselves, and sometimes because our congregation needs us.
An option for those who wish to do an oneg, but are short on time or may be physically unable to work in the ktichen, is to hire our kitchen helpers at your own expense, ($20 per hour per helper) to set up, serve and clean up an oneg for you. You only need to provide the food that you want to serve; Pat and/or Katherine will do the rest. If you are interested in this option, please call Diane Ore, chair of the Kitchen/Oneg Committee, at 356-7688.
1. Pat is available for hire to clean up onegs most every Friday night. Again, this option would be at the host’s expense, $20 per hour.
2. If you do not have a key card, and wish to set up before 7 p.m., please make arrangements with Kathy Douglas in the main office to borrow one for entry into the building on the night of your oneg.
3. It is the responsibility of the oneg hosts to close the lights in the pods, kitchen and entryways on the way out of the building. Please help us conserve energy and lower our electric bills! Be sure the front doors lock securely behind you.
