Congratulations on finding love! I would be thrilled to celebrate your partnership. I have officiated over 250 partnership ceremonies, including both opposite-sex couples and "commitment ceremonies" for same-sex couples before civil unions or marriage were available. For me, love is love, period. As a Humanistic Rabbi, I am happy to perform Jewish, interfaith, and secular ceremonies. I am a member of both the Association of Humanistic Rabbis and the Humanist Society (sponsored by the American Humanist Association). The ceremony we will create together will focus on the two of you and your loving partnership, drawing on traditional symbols in new, creative and human-focused ways. I am available to do weddings on Saturdays before sundown or minor Jewish holidays (unless I have congregational or family obligations) in the greater Chicagoland area. And I am at least competent in Spanish, French, Hebrew and Yiddish if readings in one of those languages would add meaning to your celebration. Please contact me so that I can answer any basic questions and we can arrange a time to meet!
