Special Announcement Regarding Shabbat Dinners
We’ve been advised by the JCC that they need earlier notice of Shabbat Dinner reservations in order to deal with staffing issues and to avoid significant loss and food waste. In consultation with the JCC we arrived at the following policy:
Reservations for Shabbat Dinner must be received by The UJC office NO LATER THAN 10:00 AM ON THURSDAY.
You must have a reservation in order to attend Shabbat Dinner.
This policy will take immediate effect so that reservations for Shabbat Dinner are due to The UJC office no later than Thursday at 10:00 AM.
Thank you for your help and your timely bookings!
For many years, the weekly UJC Shabbat Dinners have been a hallmark of our congregational programming, bringing together members, friends, and visitors for a traditional Shabbat celebration.
As such we appeal to the members of the UJC to help continue this tradition by sponsoring and hosting a Shabbat dinner.
There will be no Shabbat Dinner until further notice.
Information for Sponsors
Anyone wishing to sponsor a dinner can choose to be very involved in the planning or just a little.
Dinner costs are based on the menu cost and the number of people who attend. You may choose your own menu style and food. The dinners are served family style, that is in larger dishes for self service, which helps contribute to the community feeling of the meal.
Nancy is available to help and clarify anything you need to discuss, so give her a call at 2523-2985 to arrange your special Shabbat.
For Shabbatot when dinner is not sponsored, we offer a “Dutch Treat” opportunity to continue our important community meals at the Jewish Community Centre. Here’s how it works:
Nancy and Charlene will take bookings for the dinner up until 10:00 AM Thursday morning. Cost for adults: HK$200. Cost for children up to 12: HK$70.
(Advance notice is particularly important so the UJC staff can order the right amount of food from the JCC.)
