Getting Married

In Judaism, a wedding is not simply a joining of two lives. A Jewish wedding is called Kiddushin—to make a relationship holy. Marriage is one of the most important moments in our lives. Companionship, commitment, and love are one of life’s great gifts.

Couples seeking a Jewish wedding work with the Rabbi in a series of meetings to create a ceremony that is unique for every couple. These meetings provide the opportunity for the Rabbi to get to know the couple, as well as provide pre-marital counseling as requested. Meetings can be in person, or in cases where the couple does not reside in the DC area, online. As an ordained Cantor as well as an ordained Rabbi, beautiful music is a big part of every ceremony.

While the Rabbi encourages couples to incorporate most, if not all, traditional Jewish wedding customs such as Ketubah, Chuppah, Sheva Brachot (The Seven Blessings), and more, into their ceremony, every ceremony is custom tailored to contain the rubrics the couple finds most meaningful. The Rabbi is especially adept at working with Jewish law and customs surrounding ceremonies on a Saturday night. In most instances, the Rabbi will officiate at Jewish weddings for interfaith and same sex couples.
