Testimonials | Osher Marin Jewish Community Center


"As an event planner I have used the Osher Marin Jewish Center to host our annual charity event for the past 4 years.  The staff is very professional and available for any problems that might come up for such a large event.   Their knowledge for set up and  lighting is a great  help.  They can provide all the chairs and tables which is a big cost savings for sit down dinners and the kitchen is large enough to prepare and serve large groups.   It has always been a joy to work with them."”

"I had my wedding reception at the JCC this summer & couldn't have been happier.  From planning through implementation, the staff was extremely helpful, flexible, accommodating & knowledgeable.  The facility is fabulous - so many different beautiful spaces are available.  We had live music & hors d'oeuvres in the lobby, set up the dinner buffet in Pell Atrium, had a continuously running video in an adjacent meeting room, ate dinner outdoor in the beautiful courtyard, and danced the night away in the spacious Hoytt Theater.  The price for all this great space was unbelievably affordable.  Everything about this experience was so wonderful and easy.  I highly recommend the JCC as a venue for whatever event you're planning."

"…One of our guests is a lighting designer and couldn’t believe the quality of the lighting in the ballroom.  The Marin JCC offers more options than any other venue in Marin, and at very reasonable rates."



"…The Kurland Courtyard was perfect for our ceremony, and it was nice to go out there later on that warm summer night.  So romantic and beautiful!"

~Willa and David

"Our daughter was married at the JCC in February, 2019. Before contacting the JCC, we reached out to several other venues, but none seemed to be a good fit. From the very beginning of our exchange, the JCC staff, was super polite, courteous, and helpful. We had many specific requests, needs, and questions and they went out of their way to ensure that we were satisfied. They also responded to and accommodated last-minute requests, even on the day of the wedding itself!"

"Everyone went above and beyond to make sure that the wedding would be a memorable event. And it absolutely was. We are extremely grateful!"

~Hecht Wedding 

Our Fundraiser was indeed an enormously successful event, and we could not be more pleased with the service we received from the JCC. Their staff was an absolute dream to work with.  Everyone was professional, responsive, and always had a positive, can-do attitude.  We especially appreciated how quickly and cheerfully they got back to us whenever we had questions.  This made it so much easier to move forward with our planning, and gave us confidence and trust that all would run smoothly on our big day."

~Bridge the Gap Fundraiser

"The JCC and their entire staff was really lovely to deal with. Their breakdown/setup team was extremely helpful as well. They went above and beyond. I really can't say enough good things about them. Thanks again for everything. I would definitely use your venue again!"

~Strategic Energy Innovations

"Thanks to the JCC and their team, our event came together without a hitch. We hired a tech through the center who was great in solving some of our tech issues on the front end. It was pleasure to work with everyone this year. I suspect that we will be back!"

~Marin Survivors

"It was absolutely wonderful working with the Osher Marin JCC. They helped me navigate the planning of this event and I am incredibly grateful for all of their help in making the logistics so easy on our end. I would without hesitation hold another event at the JCC."
