Opening the doors to an exceptional place to host your celebrations and events Beth Emet has a variety of spaces that can be used for celebrations, events, lectures (large and small) and meetings. We work with a variety of caterers and party planners to ensure that your event is just perfect.

The Synagogue offers a large social hall (the Mildred and Herman B. Crown Room) that can accommodate 300 for a sit down meal or 600 in an auditorium style; a smaller social hall (Weiner Room), overlooking a beautiful garden, which can accommodate 125 for a sit down meal or 200 in an auditorium style; classrooms, a library that seats 20, and a full catering kitchen. The Sanctuary (which seats 325) can be rented for appropriate events.

You are welcome to choose your own caterer for any event but please note that all catering arrangements must meet Beth Emet's food guidelines (no mixing of milk or meat in a single dish or the use of shellfish and pork). If you prefer, we can suggest caterers who have been widely recommended by Beth Emet families.

Download the pdfFacility Rental Guide to assist you in your planning and when you're ready, fill out the pdfContract for Facility Use and submit to Marla Topp.

For pricing and/or more information, please contact Marla Topp or call 847-869-4230 (ext. 325). Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance for meeting room rental and three weeks in advance for social hall rental.

Whether you are having a b'nei mitzvah Kiddush or an organizational meeting, we look forward to working with you.
