This isn’t going to be a long post, it’s more of a public service announcement to tell the people who stand around a kiddush table without holding a plate or moving along need to get the heck out of the way.

Want to see violence? Go to a sushi kiddush!

Click to Enlarge

Kiddush can be a violent place, this is mostly because frum Jews have a minhag to forgo breakfast on Saturday mornings due to halachos about eating before davening and the general thought that milk and cereal is not shabbosdicke, but also because most normal Jews want to be on time to shul. This and the fact that many shuls that have gala kiddushim tend to take a while to finish up shabbos …

Kiddush: Is that cholent made with free range beef?

Do shuls have a responsibility to be friendly?

… that I expect too much, shul is a place to daven, it’s not a social event, unless you count kiddush and sleazy over the mechitza staring, but both of those things are by products of coming to shul to daven – so do shuls even have a responsibility to be friendly or welcoming in the first place?

The Rabbi in San Francisco told me that I should be a shul consultant, I could go into a shul and tell them what they were doing right and what they had to work on.

The cholent sucks here

When I first moved out here I didn’t mind the green kiddush much, some chips and salsa, veggie sticks, guacamole and several varieties of cookies seemed alright to me – but I’ve been here a year and this is one of the true sides to living in the west.

I’m sure there are shuls in LA that know how to throw a kiddush, but here in the Bay Area and several other west coast communities I have been in – they just don;t know how to do it …
