Oneg means “delight”. It is a special time of food and fellowship. Visitors are welcome to participate in this ‘pot-blessing’ time of meeting new people and being encouraged in your faith by other believers.
We ask that all members and regular attendees bring food to share even if it is something small.
 

All food for the Oneg must be kosher (clean) by biblical standards; therefore, no pork products or shellfish will be served. Dairy, fish and chicken are acceptable, no other meats please.

Keep in mind some baked goods are made with lard and other pork products, if you have a question please see the link at the bottom of this panel on What is Kosher. The kitchen staff will be checking baked goods for ingredients.
You may notice signs on the food that indicate they are gluten free. We have many people who are sensitive to gluten and have marked these items as things that are safe for them to eat. If you are not sensitive to wheat and gluten please leave these items for those who cannot eat other items containing gluten. If you bring gluten free items or specialty foods please ask he kitchen staff to be sure they are marked when placed on the table. The kitchen has gluten free labels available.

Urgent! Read and take action, if not for yourself then for others!
Comments must be submitted on or before December 19, 2019.
The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing new rules that would allow faith-based adoption and foster care providers to receive federal money without compromising their beliefs on traditional marriage. This proposed new federal rule allows faith-based groups to only adhere to nondiscrimination provisions passed by Congress, not any previous agency regulations. In 2016, the Obama Administration added sexual orientation language to an HHS rule, forcing faith-based groups to choose between their biblical beliefs on marriage or receiving federal money to serve their communities. This new proposed rule removes those restrictions. It is now at the public comment stage. Your comment is now needed.

Take action

The proposed rule is posted and open for public comment for 2 weeks. Please make your supporting comment now. Click the button above to protect the religious freedom of faith-based adoption and foster agencies.
