A wedding is one of life’s most special events – a celebration of love between two people. Rabbi Olshein is available to perform weddings for those wishing to formalize their commitment in a Jewish wedding ceremony. Before walking down the aisle, however, she meets with the couple in a series of sessions to discuss the meaning of the ceremony (nissuin), the marriage document (ketubah), canopy (huppah), and many of the other rituals and details that can be incorporated into the service so that it is most memorable and reflects the pair’s personal preferences. At these meetings, she also provides counsel on preparing for a future life dedicated to the love of one another.
Rabbi Olshein performs interfaith as well as same-sex weddings.
Weddings can be scheduled at TI – if you are a member of the congregation – or at other appropriate venues before Shabbat begins, after Shabbat ends, or on days other than High Holy Days or Festivals. Please contact Rabbi Olshein before signing any contracts with vendors to ensure appropriate time and date selections for Jewish ceremonies.
