Terms and Conditions
In compliance with Halachah and the Rebbe’s guidelines for chassunas, Oholei Torah reserves the right to expect a standard of Tznius for all weddings, Bar Mitzvahs and events. No reservation will be confirmed without prior agreement to these policies.
Separate entrances are designated for men and women. The right side of the hall is for men and the left side is for women. There must be separate tables and head tables for both the men’s and women’s section. Caterers must comply with these requirements as well. Separate washing stations are designated on either side of the hall. The mechitza must cover the entire width of the ballroom for the duration of the event. Under no circumstances may the mechitza be opened during the event.
There may not be any pictures in the lunchroom or on the steps near the lunchroom until 3:30pm. Kallah pictures taking place at 1:00pm-3:30pm may not be done in the hallway. After the Chuppah the Mezzanine Lounge should be closed off from the lunchroom for Chosson and Kallah pictures. We respectfully ask that all chosson and Kallah pictures taken on the premises are in accordance with Halachah.

Oholei Torah reserves the right to stop any infraction on our Tznius Guidelines, whether with setup or behavior before or during the wedding. This is to confirm that I have read, understand and agree to uphold all the policies specified above.
