A wedding, a Bar/Bat Mitzvah, a baby naming, a bris…These holy and spiritual life cycle events become more sanctified when celebrated in a synagogue.

Temple Beth Rishon is an unaffiliated congregation with more than 430 families. Our contemporary one-story building, situated on a partially wooded property, has a picturesque pond in the rear. The facility provides ample access and facilities for handicapped guests. Our parking lot has plenty of room for celebrations of any size.

We are conveniently located off major roads and are only 40 minutes from New York City. Click here for directions.

We hold only one function at any time in the Temple, guaranteeing you privacy and security. Our events range from a casual afternoon luncheon to an elegant evening dinner dance.  We offer three beautiful venues for your celebration:

          ♦The spacious, light-filled Kaufman Sanctuary, featuring magnificent stained-glass windows. 
          ♦The elegant, versatile Schwartz Ballroom can be customized to fit small and large parties up to 300 guests. 
          ♦The more intimate Reception Salon, for smaller gatherings.

Temple Beth Rishon is available for receptions on Saturday afternoon (after 1:00PM), Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon (after 1:00PM.) Our clergy can officiate at most life cycle events. Our Rabbi must approve the use of other clergy in the Temple.
