Room Rental Procedure

Please contact Laura Rosh with any rental inquires. 

Social Hall, Kiddush, and Shabbat Dinner Rentals:

Depending on the rental space, all rental requests must be accompanied by either a $1,000 or $500 damage deposit made by PayPal or check (made payable to Temple Rodef Shalom). Please submit a check to Laura Rosh’s attention.

You will receive an email confirmation from Laura Rosh when your request form and PayPal deposit have both been received.

If your rental date is available:

You will receive a facility application and rental agreement. We require half of the rental fee as well as the $1,000 refundable damage deposit at the time of application. Please send the signed rental agreement (provided by Laura Rosh) to Laura Rosh along with a check for half of the rental fee and refundable damage deposit. Alternatively, you may submit your payment online via PayPal to: info@templerodefshalom.org. The rental is not confirmed and placed on the Temple calendar until the signed rental agreement and payment are received.

Beginning in 2022: those renting space must also sign off that they have read and understand the contents of the Rental Booklet. Additionally, please be aware that caterers will receive an abbreviated version to sign off on as well.

**Please note that a family may not reserve more than one room at the Temple until the partner family has declined use of the facilities (with the exception of a Friday night dinner). In addition, in a weekend with both a Shacharit (morning) and Mincha (afternoon) service, the morning family may not reserve a room for an evening event until the Mincha families have declined use of the facilities for an evening event following their service.

***Evening Reception rentals are especially challenging. Planning an elaborate Reception with multiple vendors will not work within the limited time frame, 5pm-12midnight. Early and late overtime for set-up and break-down is not available for evening Receptions.

Please note the start and end time of the rentals. There is no access to the kitchen or rental space until the rental period begins. All rental space must be cleaned and vacated by the end time.

All families must hire a fully licensed and insured caterer. “Drop off” catering is not permitted. No pork or shellfish may be served in the Temple at any time. Families must abide by the Temple’s Noise Ordinance Policy and each family will be required to submit a signed Noise Policy Acknowledgement prior to their rental date. All of the policies and procedures of TRS must be abided by. To review them, please download our updated Rental Booklet
