Hebrew College: Your Event Space in Greater Boston

1860 Washington Street
Newton, MA 02466

When you’re searching for a party rental in Greater Boston, choose the one that truly makes the grade.

Hebrew College, with its modern, light-filled spaces, wooded setting, and expansive views, is the ideal venue for your next meeting, workshop, conference, or celebratory event.

Conveniently located in the heart of Newton Centre, Massachusetts, the campus is a short drive from Boston and its suburbs, easily accessible by major transportation routes, and a short walk from public transportation.

No matter what type your needs are —from a small party venue, a wedding venue, a religious or secular event, for your organization or for your family — Hebrew College can accommodate your needs.

And as we say in the halls of academia, we do it with class.
