Event Planning & Catering

Whether you have a wedding, B'nai Mitzvah, Shiva, gathering or meeting, our Event Planner and Catering department will provide whatever you need, from gourmet meals to linens.

Our Catering department coordinates all details for your event, from the catering and venue rental to linens, flower arrangements and wait staff.

Catering

The Catering department of Beth El works under the guidelines of a Mashgiach to ensure all meals are certified kosher.

Venue Rental

Beth El currently rents space to members and the community.  Whether you are celebrating a Life Event (Wedding, Retirement, B’nai Mitzvah, Birth, Birthday, Graduation), brunch, breakfast or hosting a business meeting, you have multiple spaces from which to choose at Beth El.  The Catering department will work with you, customizing a menu to meet your needs. Tables, chairs, linens and more are available through the Catering department.

Shabbat Dinners To Go

On select Fridays of each month, you can pre-order a Shabbat Dinner To Go for you or your entire family.  The Shabbat Dinner To Go is an entire Shabbat meal, for adults and kids, including the main meal, dessert, wine, challah and Shabbat candles.  Order your Shabbat Dinner To Go online.

Shivas

Losing a loved one is always difficult, and the last thing anyone should have to worry about is preparing meals to feed family and friends who drop by to console the family.  Our catering department can provide Shiva meals for small and large groups alike, even if your numbers reach 50 people for 4 or more consecutive nights.  Whatever your catering needs are for Shiva, we are here to help.

 

For more information about any Catering service, please contact the office at (412) 561-1168.
