WHAT TO DO IF I AM NOT CONVERTED IN TIME? DO I HAVE TO HAVE BOTH A RABBI AND MINISTER MARRY US? OR CAN WE JUST HAVE A RABBI AND FORGO THE KETUBHA CEREMONY? WE ARE JUST UP IN THE AIR AS TO WHAT TO DO…ADVICE WOULD BE AWESOME!!

My sister is Catholic and her husband is Jewish, so they had both a rabbi and a priest. To have the priest though, they had to agree to raise their kids Catholic, otherwise I don’t think he would have done the ceremony. Are you personally becoming Christian or Jewish? If you’re converting from Christian to Jewish, I’m not sure what the rules are.

A rabbi will marry two people, even if one of them is not Jewish. You just have to find the right rabbi to do it (which shouldn’t be hard since you are in the process of converting). Also, I am *almost* positive you can have a ketubah signing if you are not Jewish. My aunt and uncle had a rabbi preside over their wedding and they signed a ketubah, and my aunt had absolutely no plans to ever convert to Judaisim.

i would talk to the rabbi. ours was just telling us about someone who is in the process of converting, but they aren’t going to be able to do it in time either. he’s still going to marry them. i think that it depends on the rabbi, but as long as he knows your in the process and serious about it, there’s probably a good chance they’ll marry you. this is coming from a reform perspective.
