Larchmont Temple Har Chayim was organized in 1948 by a group of residents of Larchmont and Mamaroneck eager to establish a Reform synagogue as well as a religious school for their children. Its Hebrew name, Har Chayim, means "Mountain of Life."

The original Temple was located in a Victorian mansion on Willow Avenue now known as the Blum Building. Our present building was dedicated in 1954. Our current sanctuary, Social Hall and Garden room were dedicated in 2001 to meet the needs of an expanding membership which has grown from 50 to over 800 families, reaffirming covenant and our commitment to a vibrant Jewish future.


Larchmont Temple has a number of spaces that it rents out for occasions such as bar/bat mitzvah, weddings, brit or baby namings. Our Garden Room, with its spectacular cathedral ceiling and exquisite light fixture, and a terrace overlooking our own Mermey Garden, is a perfect venue for a luncheon or an evening affair. The Social Hall is ideally suited for a cocktail hour, or in its expanded configuration, for a large event (over 150 guests). If you are in need of a smaller more intimate setting, for a Shabbat evening family dinner for instance, our Grant Conference Center offers seating for up to 60 with its elegant neoclassical décor and adjustable lighting levels.

Information regarding rental costs and other requirements are available from our Executive Director, Jane Sable-Friedman. She may be reached at 914.834.6120 ext 114, or by email at
