Beth Am clergy enjoy working with engaged couples to help create a joyous and personally meaningful Jewish celebration of marriage. (Note: we also enjoy working with married couples who want to renew their vows on a milestone anniversary!) Our rabbis and cantor provide premarital counseling to couples, and take time getting to know them and understand their concerns. Same-sex couples are always welcome.
During your premarital meetings (usually three to five), you will learn the meaning of Jewish wedding customs and traditions; explore opportunities to personalize the service and involve family and friends; discuss the Jewish approach to marriage and talk about issues in your own relationship. Beth Am clergy are available to officiate at Jewish weddings for interfaith couples in certain circumstances, and welcome the opportunity to meet with interfaith couples who would like guidance or counseling as they explore the role Judaism will play in their lives. We look forward to sharing in the joy of your wedding!
