Jewish and Interfaith Weddings
A Jewish wedding ceremony is a sacred and transformative ritual. Rabbi Deb would be happy to work with you in creating your own special Jewish wedding ceremony.
Together you can create a unique and beautiful ceremony that blends the traditional with the innovative and can also include elements of music, poetry and art if you desire. Your ceremony will present opportunities for participation by family and friends as well. You will remember your wedding as a powerful, spiritual and truly special event, a time you will never forget.
Rabbi Deb will officiate at Jewish and interfaith weddings where there is a commitment to have Judaism present in your life. Each part of the wedding ceremony presents an opportunity to examine and learn about different aspects of Jewish life.
Rabbi Deb offers several pre-wedding counseling and education sessions to couples in a safe and supportive environment. Each session is appropriate to the needs and concerns of the couple. Rabbi Deb has more than twenty years of experience and skills as a clinical social worker and family therapist. She is specifically trained to deal with issues of multiculturalism and religious diversity and is pleased to officiate for LGBTQ couples.
