Throughout 2016, ten Darchei Noam families did all the kiddush shopping for our weekly wonderful kiddushes. Thank you and a big "yasher koach" to them for making our kiddushes delicious and healthy! This is different from the weekly kiddush set-up volunteers, and also from the weekly sponsors, to whom we are also very grateful! Thank you to the Krebs, Friedman/Shapin, Portnoe, J. Shapiro, Mintz, Kats, Huntley, Glotter,
Kusnetz,and Bloomfield/Karasov families for being kiddush shoppers! If you'd like to join their ranks and shop for a month of kiddushes sometime during 2017, please contact Judy Shapiro.
