Facility Rentals

The perfect setting for a splendid simcha, concert or meeting 

Looking for just the right spot for a fairy-tale wedding or a bar or bat mitzvah that will leave your family and guests kvelling? Or a concert venue where the setting is as compelling as the music? Perhaps an affordable meeting space that accommodates from 10 people to 300? Sherith Israel can meet your needs.


Couples have taken their sacred vows in our inspirational, 1,400-seat sanctuary since 1905. We invite you and your beloved to visit, and imagine walking down the aisle at Sherith Israel.

Our flexible Newman Hall and pavilion offer an elegant, convenient site for your reception. A full professional kitchen meets all dining requirements.

Please note that although Sherith Israel clergy generally perform weddings only for members and their children, our facilities are available for rental to nonmembers, as long as Jewish clergy approved by the senior rabbi officiate. Co-officiating clergy, if any, must be Jewish.

B’nai mitzvah

Students and their families must be members of Sherith Israel to host a bar or bat mitzvah here. We encourage families to sponsor an oneg following services and welcome them to hold a memorable party in our Newman Hall. Learn more about preparing for a bar or bat mitzvah at Sherith Israel.

Other simchas

A bris or baby naming, a special anniversary or recommitment ceremony—life offers many reasons to celebrate. Whatever your event, we’ll help you plan it, including rentals for our sanctuary and Newman Hall.


Congregation Sherith Israel hosts meetings, seminars, training sessions and classes for corporations and nonprofit organizations. We offer facilities for large sessions, as well as smaller spaces perfect for breakouts.
