Temple Shalom can be rented for large events using the full sanctuary or smaller events using the area shown above that can be walled off. Examples include family parties or other special occasions, lectures, club or organizational meetings and entertainment events. We routinely make our facilities available to other religious institutions in the area on a singular or longer term basis who are in need of the space.
We have a fully equipped catering kitchen with restaurant level appliances that can be used for cooking or warming food. We can supply either disposable or reusable table service and serving pieces or you may bring your own.
Please note: While not strictly Kosher, we do limit use of the kitchen to "Jewish Style" (ie. no pork or shellfish).
The procedure to rent the Temple:
Check with the Calendar Coordinator, John Sears, telephone 352-748-1800, to make sure the date of your event is available.
After you have cleared the date for your event, please read the rest of this document and complete the forms as thoroughly as you can. We are here to help you with any questions or problems you might have. We want you to be successful and have a great event, so do not hesitate to ask for help and advice.
After you complete these forms, please either fax them to 352-748-1804 or deliver them to the Temple office for our records and processing.
You should then contact the following people to arrange for the use of the different parts of our facility. We suggest you use email and ask for a confirming return email so you are sure they received your request and have no questions.
Please make sure all your arrangements are completed and confirmed at least two weeks before your event.
After your event concludes, please complete the End of Function Check List you will receive from the kitchen manager and leave it in the box in the kitchen.
