Will A Rabbi Officiate My LGBTQ+ Wedding?

Answered by
Rabbi Victor S. Appell

Mazel tov on your upcoming wedding! Although different rabbis may respond differently, nearly all Reform clergy would be happy to work with you. Reform Judaism has a long and proud history of supporting marriage equality and clergy who perform Jewish weddings for LGBTQ+ people. Many Reform rabbis and cantors will be happy to officiate at your wedding. Depending on the rabbi or cantor, and on your wishes, the ceremony can have both traditional and creative elements.
