Welcome to the beautiful Morris and Miriam Hammer Campus centrally located in West Orange only minutes from I-280. Our building was expanded and rededicated in 2006 and now boasts many wonderful rooms. We have separate meat and dairy kitchens so whatever type of affair you are looking to hold, we can accommodate, all at very reasonable prices. Our rooms are available for rental by the community Sunday thru Friday at lunchtime. Our building is fully handicapped accessible.

For further information about renting rooms in our facility, please contact Susan Friedman, our Interim Administrator (973-731-0160 x201 or administrator@bnaishalom.net) or fill out the form at the bottom of the page.


The Gruhin Sanctuary - The Gruhin Sanctuary, with seating for 400 guests is a modern warm room highlighted by the Gottlieb bima with its beautiful ark. With seating in the round there are clear unobstructed sightlines so your guests can see the bride and groom, the b'nai mitzvah or any other special person. The dome over the vaulted ceiling and the high windows encircling most of the room makes for an extra special twilight affair.

The Legow Loggia is the perfect place to host a cocktail hour, a brunch reception or a light snack and coffee after a meeting. With the adjacent Eichler Hall, it is perfect for that special birthday party or any other special simcha. With a cathedraled ceiling, a wall of windows and a beautiful slate floor it is truly a one of a kind space.

The Maron Social Hall. The Maron Social Hall is our largest and most flexible room. With its raised stage and access to the Liben Garden, the Maron Social Hall can accommodate well over 150 guests for a sit down meal and still have room for the band and a dance floor. If combined with Eichler Hall the available seats grows to about 400. If you are looking to use the room for a lecture hall, having the speakers on the stage will allow for seating of up to 750 people comfortably.

Eichler Hall, which is situated between Maron Social Hall and the Legow Loggia, is the perfect size meeting room for up to 50 guests. It makes a great food service area for either the Legow Loggia or the Maron Social Hall and is the perfect passageway for your guests as they pass from a cocktail hour in the loggia to the main reception in Maron Hall.

The Lipka Chapel is the perfect size room to hold a smaller private affair such as a baby naming, bris or other affair.

Need a private meeting room? We have classrooms available which will comfortably sit up to 20 people. We supply the tables and chairs.
