I live on Long Island and I’ve been throwing around the idea of having an interfaith ceremony (Roman Catholic and Jewish) as opposed to a Justice of the Peace. I was wondering if any Long Island Bees have done this and if they recommend anyone in particular. I would need a priest (or similar) and a rabbi (or similar).
Thanks a bunch!

Hi @McBezel! It might be helpful to post this in the local boards to find recommendations for your area. I’m afraid I’m no help there, but I highly recommend checking out the book “Celebrating Interfaith Marriages” by Rabbi Devon Lerner – it has a lot of really great information for planning an interfaith wedding and has helped me out a lot. Good luck!

@McBezel: Sometimes cantors are more willing to be flexible in that way.

@McBezel: You can probably find a rabbi & a priest who will work together. Try googling interfaith marriage. You also could find an officiant who will incorporate elements from both traditions. You might check out Rabbi Dennis Tobin or Celia Milton.

This isn’t the same as having a rabbi and a priest there co-officiating, but if you want to go the route of incorporating elements from both traditions, you could get a Unitarian Universalist reverend to officiate- they are generally pretty flexible and you still have the added spiritual dimension (although some Justices of the Peace would be willing to do that too!)
