In teaching the bride and groom the meaning of the ceremony, from the Ketubah (marriage document), to Kiddushin (Engagement), to the Huppah (Marriage Canopy), to  the Nissuin (marriage ceremony), to the breaking of the glass.  We will also counsel you, offering Jewish wisdom in preparation for a life dedicated to love and companionship.  We also work with you in designing the ceremony, providing our knowledge and experience.


Our tradition offers several powerful end of life rituals – Kriah (tearing of a garment), Levayah (funeral procession), Hesped (eulogy), Kevurah (burial) and Shivah (seven days of mourning).  We can also perform the funeral ceremony, and help you understand and implement other meaningful Jewish mourning practices.
