In-House Caterer, Lessing’s


Temple Chaverim is thrilled to introduce you to our new caterer, Lessing’s.
This announcement is the culmination of an extensive process undertaken by our Board to ensure that the new caterer is worthy of being included in the Chaverim family. Through it all, the best interests of our members was our primary motivation. Ensuring that the Chaverim family was in the best possible hands led us to Lessing’s.

Below is an introductory letter from Lessing’s. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Lessing’s, myself or your Chaverim staff with any questions.

Best regards,

Dear Chaverim,

Lessing’s Hospitality is excited to start our new catering partnership with Temple Chaverim and the congregation. Lessing’s Hospitality Group is a sixth-generation, family-owned company comprised of over 120 locations throughout the Northeast and Florida, including 17 catering venues, 14 restaurants, and Judaic establishments. Our knowledge and experience are steeped in over 130 years of tradition while continuously adapting to a continually changing industry.

From our previous experiences starting any new catering relationship, we know that the initial transition stage is essential to building long-lasting relationships with our clients. We have been working very closely with our Temple Chaverim liaisons to ensure a seamless transition for anyone with a previously booked party at Temple Chaverim. Lessing’s plan is to speak personally with everyone that has a party booked in a timely matter. Lessing’s is committed to honoring the existing contracts as they are written to the best of our ability. We understand the importance of making sure your event is as you planned for it to be.

We look forward to getting to know the congregation through various catering open houses and event showcases. This will be a chance for us to listen and understand what you are looking for as you plan your special events at Temple Chaverim. Every catering location is unique, so we look at this as an individual relationship with Chaverim. Our relationships are built on not just being your catering company but working at being an extension of the community we serve.

We look forward to starting the transition process quickly and reaching out to anyone with a booked party shortly. We will also be available for anyone that would like to discuss potential future events. For any immediate questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Billy Lodato (631) 356-9079 or email  Please visit our website for more information on our company and other venues.
