Book an Event

Ansche Chesed has many spaces ideal for bar/bat mitzvah lunches and parties, wedding receptions and other large events, as well as smaller settings perfect for children’s parties, meetings, lectures, talks and concerts. Please see our contact information below, as well as list of kosher caterers.

Spaces


Banquet Room

With 2,600 square feet of space and a 570-square-foot dance floor, Hirsch Hall, Ansche Chesed’s banquet room, is an ideal space for receptions, parties and other large events. The room is accessible from both the lower-level lobby, which is reached by elevator and stairs from the ground floor lobby and via a staircase leading directly into the hall from the sanctuary above. The hall is available on Saturday and Sunday nights and on Sundays other than those times during which there are religious services.


Sanctuary

Ansche Chesed’s 15,000-square-foot sanctuary is a wonderful space for talks, lectures and concerts. The room seats 1,300 — 652 on the main floor and 502 in the balcony and 156 in free-standing, extra-wide, cushioned chairs at the front of the room that can be removed or arranged in a variety of configurations to create a more intimate space. The sanctuary is available on many weekdays, weeknights, Saturday and Sunday nights, and Sundays other than those times during which there are religious services. 


Meeting Rooms

Ansche Chesed has a variety of small and mid-sized rooms that can be rented for meetings, children’s parties and other gatherings.

Caterers Offering Drop-Off Platters

Drop-off platters, i.e. cold, pre-plattered food that does not require the use of Ansche Chesed’s ovens, are often a less expensive option than full-service catering. The caterers listed below are often hired to provide drop-off platters for brises and baby-namings.
