Important Announcement Regarding Kibitz Cafe:

Over the past six years, hundreds of Shaare Emeth congregants attended the popular Sunday morning Kibitz Café, organized by MOSHE (Men of Shaare Emeth). Live music, hand-crafted breakfasts, and great company were enjoyed by all, and MOSHE is so very proud of the program’s positive impact on the Temple and its members.

In an effort to deploy energies toward other areas of Shaare Emeth and the greater community, MOSHE hereby announces that the time has come to end the Kibitz Café’s amazing run.

Of the experience, past MOSHE president and creator of Kibitz Café, Ken Levine, states, “It was an amazing time of both energy and accomplishment to create such a project. We reached a point where we needed additional people-power and resources to maintain the assurance of delivering a consistently top-shelf experience for our customers, who are also our friends and family.”

Additionally, current MOSHE’s President, Gene Jacobson explains, “We prefer to end strong with incredible memories of the thousands of breakfasts and of all of the live music that so many of our congregants and community members enjoyed through the years, all the while sitting and kibitzing with friends, old and new!”

MOSHE thanks everyone who attended and enjoyed breakfast throughout the years. Gratitude is also expressed to all of the MOSHE members, their significant others, and the countless friends and family that volunteered with everything from shopping to cleaning and providing music.

The Men of Shaare Emeth look forward to continued involvement with various Shaare Emeth events such as the Purim Carnival, Chanukah Dinner, and other meaningful programs.

“Todah Rabah” (thank you), MOSHE, for all of the great Kibitz Café memories!
