Facilities & Rentals

Planning a celebration or special program?

Consider holding your event at the Merage JCC. Our facility features striking indoor and outdoor spaces, many with breathtaking views. We have room options to accommodate any size gathering, whether large and lavish or small and intimate. We are conveniently located close to John Wayne Airport and several major freeways.

Our onsite Kosher caterer offers elegant meal presentations and a wide variety of menu choices. In order to assure adherence to kashrut (Jewish dietary laws), the use of our kitchen is limited to our Kosher caterer who will be happy to provide menu options for your consideration. You may bring your own caterer with approval, but caterers would have no access to the JCC kitchen.

Facility rental is open to JCC members and nonprofits with a 501(c)3 certificate only. All rates include tables, chairs, set-up and tear-down, clean-up, and parking. The rental also includes one security guard. Events with over 100 guests will need to hire extra security.


Contact Symphony Barth, (949) 435-3400, ext. 327, to schedule a free consultation or a personal tour of the facility.
