About Kiddush

Written by Carrie Barbakoff. Posted in About ASKT

Sabbath Kiddush, the communal gathering that follows the Sabbath morning prayers, is a traditional opportunity to mark joyous events and life cycle occasions within the community. The Kiddush is an important part of our community's character. It generates closeness, allows people to get to know each other, and it integrates new members into the community quickly.

At the conclusion of Sabbath morning prayers, the congregation gathers to say the blessing over the wine ("Kiddush"). The week's Sponsor has an opportunity to speak about the event for which they are sponsoring the Kiddush, and is welcome to say a few words about the Torah portion of that week, an upcoming Jewish holiday, or another Jewish topic.

ASKT has a weekly Kiddush immediately following Shacharit. On the Shabbat closest to Rosh Chodesh we have a sit-down (usually fleshig) Kiddush lunch.

If you would like to sponsor a Kiddush in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or a special event such as a baby naming, graduation, or just another opportunity to give thanks in the company of family and friends or in memory of a loved one's yahrtzeit.

A typical Kiddush at ASKT is approximately 80-100 people, plus friends or family whom you would like to invite to join us. Kiddush refreshments for the basic Kiddush for 80 people are $160.00. You have the freedom to make your Kiddush as elaborate you wish, of course, and can augment the suggestions.

About ASKT

Written by Carrie Barbakoff. Posted in About ASKT

Anshe Sfard Kehillat Torah (ASKT) is an Orthodox synagogue, located within an eruv, in the northshore Milwaukee suburb of Glendale, Wisconsin. Our shul was founded in 1986 by 17 families and has since grown to 100 families; many are Shabbat observers who live in close proximity to the shul. We have a daily minyan for Shacharit. Mincha/Maariv meets during all seasons, except for the winter when there is late Maariv instead. Classes, for both men and women, are taught by our rabbi as well as visiting rabbis and community members. We also have well-attended, regular scholar-in-residence programs and many social activities and learning programs, including a women’s monthly Tehillim group. In our participatory shul, members are actively involved in services through leading davening and reading the Torah, and are innovative in creating programming and organizing holiday events. As a Zionistic shul, we incorporate prayers for the IDF and the State of Israel into our davening, and we participate in community-wide Yom Yerushalayim and Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations.

One of the most impressive things about ASKT is our palpable sense of community. Besides celebrating Shabbat, holidays and Jewish lifecycles together, we are always here for one another. Whether it is a prayer for good health, help finding a new job, babysitting information or milk from the grocery store, the culture in our community is to help without hesitation.

Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee is perhaps best known for its famous breweries and the Major League Brewers, but there's more to the city than beer and baseball. Milwaukee is rich in historical and cultural attractions, boasting a beautiful lakeshore and a diverse population, making it the perfect place for work, fun and raising a family. Check out the newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum or the Mitchell Park Horticultural Society, which hosts an annual show of the same flora and fauna seen in Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. Those interested in the city's history can visit the grand Pabst Mansion, former home of one of the city's famous beer barons, or the Milwaukee Public Museum, to see what life was like in Old Milwaukee. There's also plenty for the kids. Don't miss the Milwaukee County Zoo or the Betty Brinn Children's Museum
