Lifecycle Ceremonies


Baby Welcoming

Welcoming a new baby into the family is an exciting and nervewracking time.  Jewish tradition offers ritual to honor this moment.  I work with families to create welcoming rituals that reflect the traditions of the parents, and set the course for the religious life of the child.

Bar Mitzvah

Whether you are turning 13 and becoming a bar mitzvah or becoming one as an adult, I help you mark this joyous occasion through the rituals of Judaism.  I will accompany you or your child as she prepares to take on this holy role.


Since 2014 I have accompanied many couples as they take their first steps towards marriage.  I create beautiful and meaningful wedding ceremonies that reflect the path each partner has taken to the day of their wedding.  Through premarital counseling and planning the ceremony, I get to know my wedding couples well so that the ceremony is as beautiful and meaningful as possible.  I love standing with a couple as they unite in marriage.
