Hello, my name is Sara Shonfeld. I am an ordained Rabbi , Interfaith wedding officiant and Interfaith Rabbi. I honor the celebration of Jewish and interfaith life cycle events.
I was born and raised in Israel where I mastered in education and Jewish studies.
I have been officiating Jewish, interfaith, spiritual, civil and intercultural ceremonies.
A Wedding is a sacred loving union that should express who you are as an individual and as a couple. I welcome all couples and proud to celebrate marriage equality!
One of the things that my couples love most about my services is my attention to the personal aspects, those details that make you two a unique couple!All my ceremonies are personalized, inclusive, joyful and welcoming.
In Jewish weddings, Prayers and Blessings can be authentically chanted with original melodies in my native fluent Hebrew and is also translated in English. My goal is that every one of your guests will feel included and an integral part of your celebration.
I will work with you individually to create a custom ceremony so it will be unique to you as a couple.
I am respectfully open and accepting of all traditions and seeing them all as equal paths.
Often, I co-officiate weddings with clergy from other religions and faiths. I will be happy to work with your clergy or I have a group of wonderful and professional ministers that I work with as a Rabbi and Minister team. Together, we create a balanced, harmonious and joyful wedding that speaks to all.
I perform ceremonies anywhere, but my main area of focus is NYC, Long Island and the Tri-State Area!
