Jewish & Interfaith Wedding Ceremonies

Rabbi Michael''s Philosophy:
It 's Your Wedding, Not Someone Else's

In every wedding, Jewish, interfaith or something else, Rabbi Michael approaches this as your wedding, not someone else's. You figure out with him what rituals and customs to include and how to make your wedding exactly that--yours.

Call Rabbi Michael today and talk about your ideas for your wedding day.  Jewish & Interfaith wedding ceremonies may range from very traditional to spiritual. 

You and your fiance are individuals who have come together to celebrate life as one unique family. Let Rabbi Michael help make your wedding day dreams come true.

Ever worry about the rabbi getting to your wedding on time, avoiding the Southern California traffic? 

One couple recently arranged for a friend to fly Rabbi Michael and his wife to travel by helicopter from Orange County to Simi Valley. Quite the view flying up the coast! When a helicopter isn't available he'll plan ahead for the traffic.

Reserving Your Wedding Date 

Saturday Starting Time

Co-Officiation

There are only so many weekends in a year! Contact Rabbi Michael right away to find out if he is available on your date. When you meet with him he puts a hold on your date and will contact you if someone calls for the same date and give you right of first refusal. 
Talk to Rabbi Michael about when your wedding can start on Saturday. You might be surprised how early things can get going and how flexible he can be.
There are many circumstances in which Rabbi Michael is happy to officiate with ministers and priests of other faiths. We can create a celebration that respects the faiths of two families and honors the integrity of each religious tradtion.

Including Everyone

Baby Naming Services

Once You Commit

Rabbi Michael understands that families come from different religious backgrounds. He makes sure that everyone feels included in the wedding ceremony. 
Couples that commit to Rabbi Michael officiating their wedding meet with him, receive support documents, have access to him by phone, email and Skype and get help with everything ceremony-related. One of his primary goals is to get to know you as well as possible so the ceremony can be personal and he will feel connected to you.

Rabbi Michael enjoys providing baby naming services to many of his couples. Please call or email him in advance and let him know your when you're thinking of having a naming ceremony. He'll help with Hebrew names and creating a beautiful ceremony for your family.
