Catering & Rentals

Centrally located in midtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Shaarei Shomayim has the facilities for your simcha, meeting or gathering.

We have many options for both kosher dairy and meat catering, all under supervision of COR. Our caterer is Menchens Catering (contact Naomi Rosenblatt at 416.638.8381).

We can accommodate over 700 people in our sanctuary. Our large banquet hall can seat 750 (theatre style) or 430 with room for an orchestra (with the sanctuary wall removed).

Our parking lot can accommodate approximately 200 vehicles. There is also street and other parking available for many other cars. The building is a 1-minute walk from the TTC Bathurst bus, which runs 24 hours a day.

wheelchairAll entrances, rooms, main floor washrooms, and central bimah in the sanctuary are wheelchair accessible. We have a shabbat elevator. There are two new washrooms on the lower level which are wheelchair accessible.
