Consider Shaare Tefila for Your Next Special Event

Whether your Simcha celebration is an anniversary or retirement party, Bar or Bat Mitzvah, wedding or other special occasion, Shaare Tefila provides the ambiance, beauty and professional experience with every detail to make your event truly memorable. Shaare Tefila offers a compelling alternative to dark, windowless hotel ballrooms or restaurant venues. Our spacious new ballroom has vaulted ceilings and tall windows, adding beauty to any celebration. Shaare Tefila’s new, fully equipped modern kitchen can handle all types of catering requirements.* Seating is available in flexible table configurations to accommodate up to 300 people. We also provide an attractive, in-laid dance floor for your convenience. Carefully designed to incorporate outdoor beauty with a bright and airy indoor space, Shaare Tefila’s synagogue and social hall enhance our guest’s enjoyment while celebrating any special occasion. From our hilltop setting, the outdoor courtyard areas offer views of the Lafayette Reservoir. These areas may be used for photo sessions, small receptions, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. To discuss your event, reserve a date or tour the facility, please contact our Executive Director at (301) 593.3410.
