***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.

All families must hire a fully licensed and insured caterer. 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 the Rental Booklet.
