Our Facilities & Sacred Space

The Messer Chapel

Our Chapel is warm and inviting and lends itself to joyous song and introspective worship. Its hexagonal shape brings our congregation together. Built in 1969 as part of the original structure on Ridge Road, the chapel contains the memories of many holidays and family celebrations. Recently updated, the chapel is used for life cycle events and Shabbat services.

Rockdale Pavilion

The multi-purpose Social Hall comfortably seats up to 100 at round tables or 150+ in theatre seating. It can be divided into smaller areas and opens onto the outdoor patio area. The lower level houses a fully-equipped kitchen for congregational events and receptions. For rental information, contact Facility & Event Manager Reeda Miracle at 513-891-9900 or rmiracle@rockdaletemple.org
