Beautiful customized wedding ceremonies. Spiritual, Jewish, Interfaith and Civil ceremonies.

Interfaith Ceremonies

I officiate at interfaith ceremonies involving Jewish and non-Jewish couples.

 

There are a variety of ways to perform an interfaith ceremony.  Many people have one ceremony with one person officiating who will incorporate a "flavor" of rituals that are important to each individual.  A discussion of what each person believes will balance the ceremony is done before, in preparation for this event.  Some couples will choose to have two separate ceremonies honoring each religion.  Please note that the first ceremony is legal and binding.  The second ceremony is considered a blessing over your marriage. 

 

It is important that each person feels comfortable with what is being said during the ceremony.  Therefore, sensitivity to language regarding each individual’s religion and culture will also be discussed prior to the wedding day.
