What’s sweeter than a new baby?  Shomrei welcomed  4 day old Esther Hirsch to the congregation with an in-house catered kiddush on Shabbat, November 19.

Babies come when they are ready so the kiddush volunteers didn’t find out about Esther’s birth until late Wednesday afternoon. We did a quick pivot, abandoning the planned kiddush menu, and substituting a custom menu requested by Esther’s parents, Josh Hirsch and Jenny Leon.

Thank you to the wonderful volunteers who helped make this celebration  a reality: Erin Berman, Marc Grossberg, Lou Hammerman,  Beryl Hiller, and Carol Katzman. A special thanks goes to Josh Hirsch who volunteered his help. He makes an excellent tuna salad.

To schedule a custom kiddush to celebrate or commemorate a special person or event, contact Aileen Grossberg (email hidden; JavaScript is required) or Ehud Klinger (email hidden; JavaScript is required) ideally well in advance of the requested date.
