Hosting a Reception at Emanu-El

Temple Emanu-El is pleased to be able to offer our magnificent spaces to temple members, not only for religious services and life-cycle events but also for the celebrations associated with them.

Hosting a grand celebration after a life-cycle service,
an intimate luncheon or a brief Kiddush?

Temple members have a variety of magnificent spaces available to them for private events. Planning your party at Emanu-El rather than at an outside venue can make a celebration far less stressful for you and your guests. We have worked hand-in-hand with some of the foremost caterers and party planners in New York, and we offer rooms of different sizes to suit your particular requirements.

To reserve an event date or to obtain detailed information about hours and regulations for catered events at Temple Emanu-El, please contact our Events Coordinator.

FEES: Room fees are paid directly to the temple and are dependent on the space you choose. Catering fees are paid to your caterer.
