Oseh Shalom is committed to environmental justice. We have an active Sacred Grounds team, which promotes using native plants to help local wildlife and more. Working with the National Wildlife Federation, the team has created a new native plant pollinator garden surrounding our “Oseh Shalom” sign facing the corner of Van Dusen Rd and Olive Branch Way. Our campus includes two rain gardens, a pollinator garden, biblical garden, more than 100 trees and two vibrant courtyards outside our Sanctuary, opening onto our Social Hall and Foyer. We are letting some of campus go wild to better support local wildlife and pollinators. We have replaced all our lightbulbs with energy efficient LEDs and have extensive natural light with skylights in our Social Hall and a domed Sanctuary.
We also have an active group working to bring environmental justice to our nearby community and throughout the area. We actively work to reduce climate change in large and small ways both in our building and in our homes and workplaces. Wondering why Jews care about this kind of work? Check out this short, award winning video from the Coalition on the Environment and Jewish, Faith and Land, featuring Rabbi Daria and other Jewish leaders.
Looking for a beautiful, affordable place to hold your wedding, concert, birthday party, meeting or other event? We have many great spaces to offer, located just minutes from I-95 and the ICC.
Our building offers numerous classrooms suitable for meetings; a large social hall/ballroom that is perfect for wedding receptions, parties, dances and other celebrations; a large commercial kitchen, and a sanctuary with exceptional acoustics for concerts, lectures, ceremonies and other events. We host ceremonies for all religions as well as non-religious commitment ceremonies.
We have extensive off-street parking in a beautifully landscaped property. The building is completely handicapped accessible with baby changing stations, acessible parking and wheelchair ramps for curb access.
Our Ballroom features beautiful wood floors, garden views, skylights and a wall of windows for maximum natural light. Rental options include round or rectangular tables, tablecloths in a range of colors and much more. Use of our kitchen must be overseen because it is a kosher facility. We do not allow pork or shellfish items. Other meats must be kosher as well but most fish is fine. We can suggest kosher caterers that range from very affordable to full-service elegance. For those wishing to have a fish, dairy or vegetarian meal, you would only have to pay a small fee for a kitchen supervisor. We also offer elegant glass dishes, flatware, etc.
