If you’re looking for someone who isn’t officious to officiate at your life cycle event, I’m always available for
- Commitment ceremonies
- B’nai Mitzvah
- Welcoming/naming ceremonies (both for babies and for adults)
- Ceremonies marking other important life changes such as gender transition, adoption, becoming a step parent or foster parent, recovery from an illness, etc.
As an officiant, I am warm, professional and reasonably flexible. It is my personal policy, and that of RCBI, the community where I serve, to perform weddings for couples of mixed faith traditions. I am always happy to work with people to adapt the ritual patterns provided by Jewish tradition to meet the particular needs of individuals/families/members of a partnership/etc. I am comfortable working people of all genders and familiar with the particular challenges and opportunities faced by LGBTQIA folks when it comes to engaging with Jewish ritual.
If you think you might be interested in having me officiate your life cycle event, please send me a note via this website’s Contact page.
