The Venue

Oholei Torah Ballroom

Oholei Torah’s 60th Gala Dinner will take place in the prestigious ballrooms of the Oholei Torah Center, formerly known as the
Brooklyn Jewish Center
Inaugurated in 1920, the ballrooms have hosted personalities of international acclaim, including Albert Einstein, Richard Tucker, Cantor Yossele Rosenblatt, Justice Louis D. Brandeis, Mark Rothko, Sholom Secunda, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Today the Jewish Center exists as Oholei Torah Educational Institute, the flagship school of Chabad Lubavitch. Extensive renovations were made to restore the former glory of the Ballrooms which now host hundreds of events each year, including the annual International Conference of Chabad Emissaries, Chabad on Campus Shabbatons, and many community events and simchas.
