When you are using the Temple premises for any reason, including a Bar/Bat Mitzvah service and/or Kiddush, you are responsible for the actions and behavior of your guests while in the building. This includes liability for any and all damage to Temple property.
LIABILITY: Temple Israel of Northern Westchester shall not be responsible for the loss of or damage to any personal property by individuals using its facilities, coatrooms, lavatories, parking lots, etc.
INSURANCE DOCUMENTATION: All contractors or subcontractors (i.e., caterers, florists) must submit certificates of worker’s compensation and public liability insurance to the Temple Office at least 60 days in advance.
EQUIPMENT:No Temple equipment may be used without prior consent of the Temple Administrator. A refundable damage deposit is required.
KITCHEN FACILITIES: The freezer and dishwasher may not be used unless arrangements are made beforehand with the Temple Administrator. Leftovers (food you think is worth saving) can not be left in the kitchen. Please take them home.
BASKETS &/OR PLATTERS: Any baskets or platters that you (or your caterer) want returned are the responsibility of the family, not the Temple.
FOOD AND DRINK: No eating or drinking is permitted in the Sanctuary or the Lobby at ANY TIME, other than when the Simple Kiddush takes place in the Lobby area.
SMOKING: Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the building.
USE OF EMPLOYEES: The ONLY responsibilities of the Temple custodian during a private party are to supervise the removal of the garbage and to be on hand in case of an emergency. Cleanup is the responsibility of the individuals contracting for the use of the building.
PARKING: Right of way through both parking areas must be left clear for emergency vehicles. Buses for children should arrive no earlier than 11:45 am and may line up perpendicular to the building. The bus driver must remain in the bus. The bus should be marked with the family’s name.
