celebrating tradition- NYC oneg shabbat in Manhattan

Although CuisinEtc  Catering and Special Events is not a kosher caterer, we do a lot of work with various synagogues throughout NYC and recently CuisinEtc was honored to be asked once again, to cater a special Oneg Shabbat for one of NYC historic congregations.

Oneg Shabbat

Pronunciation: (ō'neg shä-bät'), [key] Hebrew. 
a Jewish celebration in honor of the Sabbath that takes place on Friday evening or Saturday afternoon and usually includes a program of songs, a lecture, and refreshments.

This particular Friday night the Oneg Shabbat refreshments included a stunning and bountiful display of hot and room temperature food offerings provided by the talented team of the NYC boutique catering firm, CuisinEtc Catering and Special Events . After the traditional shabbat services and blessings CuisinEtc Catering and Special Events, a NYC boutique caterer was proud to present these lovely and delicious food offerings for the enjoyment of the congregation.
