ReformJudaism.org Can Help You Find a Wedding Officiant
Engaged to be married? Mazel tov and congratulations!
We know how much you’re anticipating your wedding day. We understand, too, that planning the “perfect wedding” can be stressful. Finding the right officiant shouldn’t be.
Now that you’ve chosen one another, choosing a wedding officiant is the most important decision you’ll make. The right officiant will help you shape the ceremony you’ve always dreamed of – and one that will resonate throughout your married life.
ReformJudaism.org is excited to announce the Reform wedding officiation network, which will connect you and your partner with clergy who will help you create a Jewish ceremony that honors each partner’s identities and interests and speaks to your unique relationship. Our Reform wedding officiation network is designed with both intrafaith and interfaith partners in mind.
All our officiants are rabbis and cantors who are trained and experienced in ushering couples into married life with the wisdom and beauty of Jewish practices and traditions. Our clergy are exclusively members of Reform rabbinic and cantorial associations, with ordination from accredited seminaries and governed by strong ethics codes.
Here’s how it works:
Couples are invited to complete this brief form telling us about yourself and your wedding plans and we’ll provide you with contact information for up to four clergy members who are available for the date, time, and location of your wedding, and are excited to speak with you about this milestone in your lives. They also will offer spiritual and logistical guidance for your special day.
The icing on the (wedding) cake? There’s absolutely no cost to use the Reform wedding officiation network.
Rabbi Mari Chernow, a Jewish leader from Temple Chai in Phoenix and a member of the network, derives tremendous joy from officiating at weddings:
“Getting to know couples as they prepare for their wedding is one of the great privileges of being rabbi. Standing under the chuppah with them at a sacred moment in their lives – as they make promises to one another and look into the future with optimism and hope – is something I find exciting and inspiring. I look forward to connecting with many couples – helping them create a beautiful and meaningful ceremony, as well as facilitate conversations that will strengthen their relationship for years to come.”
Let the Reform wedding officiation network and its clergy help you create a wedding ceremony that reflects your life and your love.
