Our Sanctuary is the large and beautiful space where our congregation gathers. It is also home to other faith communities that share our beliefs of inclusiveness and social justice. This space is ideal for weddings, concerts, and worship services. It seats 200 – 300 people. It measures 7,196 square feet.  

Social Hall

Our Social Hall is a wonderful space for events such as lectures, birthday parties, b’nai mitzvah celebrations, and dinners. It includes access to a warming kitchen.  The space accommodates 60 people seated or 120 -150 standing/cocktail party style.



Perfect for a class of 8 – 20 teens or adults. Available weeknights and weekends. We have 7 classroom spaces.  They can be set with a table and chairs for a meeting, or auditorium style. Classrooms on our 3rd floor are wheelchair accessible. Classrooms on the 4th floor are not.



The rooftop space is perfect for overflow from the Social Hall space.  You can tent the rooftop. If children will be in attendance, extra staff is required to watch the fire escape and railings.
