Life Cycle Ceremonies

wedding• Baby Namings
• Bar/Bat Mitzvahs
• Weddings
• Vow Renewals
• Funerals & Unveilings
• Conversions

Each individual, couple or family I work with is unique and their approach to life should be reflected in the Jewish ceremonies which mark such important moments. Starting with the traditional framework for this occasion, we may study its meanings and origins together to decide how best to use these elements and where to add more modern features (other poems, reading, rituals acts) in keeping with our overall purpose. This way I help you create a personalized and meaningful ceremony  in keeping with Jewish practice and your own sensitivities.

If there is no existing ritual or Jewish tradition  to mark this significant event, we will look at Jewish and other sources to craft something beautiful and deeply expressive for you, or you may select from ones that I have already created, e.g., Becoming A Jewish Grandparent.

For more information and ideas, see my Writings and Rituals section.
