Your Jewish Wedding

Our lives are a sacred journey. Each passage is enriched by time-honoured ritual creatively personalized to bring forth the beauty inherent in the moment and share it with others.

I am an experienced, ordained rabbi based in Vancouver, BC. For more than twenty-five years, I’ve joined with and guided hundreds of individuals and families on their journeys. I have the knowledge and skill to help you adopt and adapt the rich traditions of Jewish ritual – and I love doing just that, especially for weddings.

I honour all loving couples. I will be delighted to plan your wedding ceremony with you by sharing what I know and love of the Jewish tradition and helping you blend it with your own visions and values. I also will be honoured to officiate at your ceremony either by myself or with others you may choose and to register your marriage with the Province of British Columbia.

If you’d like to explore the possibilities with me, please be in touch by writing me at I'll be happy to send you my three-page introduction to the elements of a Jewish wedding ceremony.

Rabbi David Mivasair

One of the many wonderful teachers along my path, I hold Rabbi David Mivasair in a special place in my heart. He is a wonderful leader of ceremony for life's turning points. I also remember back when there was no same sex marriage in Washington and he would perform those weddings for Seattelites.

Lisha Sterling

I know David to be a man of great heart, joy and wisdom. What a wonderful person to facilitate a joy filled and meaningful wedding where all present will feel included and touched.
