Chaplaincy / Interfaith Weddings

Getting married? Mazal tov!

 

As a chaplain, I officiate and co-officiate "Jewish-and..." interfaith weddings.

 

My partner and I as an interpartnered couple faced so many "no"s from clergy when we wanted a wedding that reflected both of our families' traditions. With me, you will never need to apologize for your story or feel inadequate about how you do you.

I love to explore Jewish rituals and traditions from a variety of Jewish denominations, Jewish cultures, and eras from Jewish history. I've served as the Director of Jewish Learning for the Entwine division of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, the largest Jewish humanitarian organization in the world, and was the Director of Jewish Life at Chapman University in California prior to moving back to Asheville. I officiate weddings for people of all gender identities and sexual orientations near Asheville, across the USA, and beyond. (I've even officiated a wedding in Turkey!) 

I sincerely look forward to hearing from you.

Interfaith Weddings

Love across difference is especially worth honoring and celebrating.
