Facilities for Hire

Beit Emanuel has an extensive campus of buildings. Some of these may be hired for meetings or for social or educational events.

Janks Hall. Seating can be arranged formally, facing a stage, as shown here, or around circular tables.

Janks Hall

Our largest facility is the main functions hall behind the synagogue. This extensive space includes a stage and two bar/food serving areas. The main hall can seat up to 200 people at tables seating up to ten persons, for either formal or buffet-style meals. It is ideal for wedding receptions, birthday parties and entertainment performances on stage, or discos. There is also a wooden dance floor.

The courtyard consists of two rooms divided by sliding doors. A piano is available (see right)


For smaller functions seating up to about 80 people there is a suite of function rooms leading onto a delightful garden. This offers the hirer the choice of outdoor or indoor facilities, or a combination of both. The combined facilities can cater for +/- 100 people, especially for informal or buffet catering. Garden furniture is available (tables, chairs, large sun-shade umbrellas).

The raked cinema-style seating of the Slome Auditorium makes it suitable for film shows and talks

Slome Auditorium

We have a 140-seat auditorium with cinema-style seating which is suitable for larger meetings such as AGMs or for lectures or showing films.

Gillis Boardroom and Brasch Youth Lounge

Smaller meeting rooms suitable for up to 40 people are also available.

Kosher Kitchens

In 2009, Beit Emanuel invested heavily in the creation of two completely new Kosher kitchens. These facilities are available for hire to any caterer conversant with and prepared to observe Jewish dietary regulations. The Rabbi can advise regarding these requirements.

Formal or informal catering and a range of lighter refreshments can be provided to support any event.

We believe that the facilities are competitively priced and, in addition, discounted pricing is available to members.

For further details regarding facilities for hire (including pricing and booking) please contact Beit Emanuel’s Synagogue Administrator on 011 646 6170 or office@beitemanuel.co.za.
