Facility Rentals

Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School offers two campuses that are available to rent for a variety of occasions, celebrations or programs.  We welcome the chance to discuss your needs, as it is a pleasure to make our wonderful campuses available for rent to the community.

Rental requests for the coming school year will be delayed until August to allow school organizations and staff to schedule their events.  No rentals will be accepted more than one year in advance, and regular school activities shall have priority in the use of any school facility. If an outside event is scheduled but a school event of high priority arises and cannot be accommodated elsewhere, the school may offer an alternate space on either campus, offer another date, or give a full refund.

The rental agreement will include the room fee, A/V needs, deposit amount, security and custodial fees as applicable.  A Certificate of Insurance (COI) may be requested. Most applications require five business days to review, however, more complex requests may require additional time. We may not be able to accommodate requests made without enough notice.
