Receptions


We are here to make your event memorable and to help you
and your guests enjoy the experience free of stress and worry.





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

Kosher Policy: Temple Emanu-El does not impose strict kosher regulations on catered events. What we routinely permit is “kosher-style” catering, which means that while some foods are not permitted — such as shellfish and pork products — dairy and meat may be served together.

Please note: Evening events are limited to six hours and must conclude by midnight; an additional fee will be required if special arrangements are made to exceed that time limit. Afternoon events are limited to four hours and must conclude by 6 PM, unless special arrangements are made.
