Oneg & Shabbat Hosts

banner oneg

Congregation Emeth has a tradition of a warm and welcoming Oneg Shabbat table (reception), with sweets and fruit after services on Friday night, and bagels, fruit, cut veggies, and sweets following services on Shabbat morning. In addition to blessing the wine and challah, attendees partake in refreshments, conversation, and the opportunity to renew existing friendships and begin new ones. Please help us to build community by remembering to bring some small contribution to our Oneg if and when you are able–any contribution is appreciated.

Temple member families host the service and Oneg on a rotating basis. A board representative is also assigned to each service to support the host family. The following guidelines are provided for host families and board reps:

Oneg Shabbat Host Responsibilities – Shabbat Morning Oneg Shabbat Host Responsibilities – Friday Evening Oneg Shabbat Board Rep Duties


Hosting duties are not onerous, yet they are important.. Please take part  by volunteering once a year to be a Shabbat host.
