Weddings for Same-Sex Couples:

The Adventure Rabbi team are honored to officiate at same-sex weddings.

The ceremony does not differ from other weddings, with language changes as appropriate. For example, in the Sheva Berachot "bridegroom and bride" becomes "re'im ahuvim," loving companions or bride and bride, or groom and groom.

The same options concerning interfaith ceremonies are available. (See Interfaith Ceremonies)

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Do you work with interfaith couples?
Yes, we all work with interfaith couples who who wish to have a Jewish ceremony. We do not co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy.

Q: How will we get to know the rabbi?
A: The Rabbi meets with you for two sessions before your wedding ceremony.

Q: What if we live out of town or don’t have time for meetings?
A: Many of our clients live out of town and even overseas. You might choose to fly in one extended meeting, or do the work by phone. Sometimes the Rabbi and the couple meet in person for the first time at the wedding, although it always feels like we have known each other for ages. The most important work can be done over the phone, in two sessions.

Q: Do the Rabbis co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy?
Not at this time.

Q: Will the rabbis perform ceremonies on Shabbat?
A: We will perform a ceremony on Shabbat at 5 pm or later.

Q: How do I pick which rabbi to hire?
A. Location! Rabbi Yakar works in Lake Tahoe. Rabbi Korngold and Rabbi Goldsmith will travel. All of our rabbis will work with you to create a personalized and unique wedding.

All of our rabbis are wedding specialists and are able to focus deeply on each couple with whom they work. We are known for creating wedding ceremonies that meet the couples needs, rather than intruding with our own menu of what "should" happen.

Q: What are the Fees?
A: Our wedding ceremony fees represent the time and attention we give to each wedding couple. The Rabbis spend approximately ten hours preparing for each wedding. This includes meetings with the couples, writing a personalized ceremony and officiating at the ceremony. You can see our fee schedule here>>>

Q: Will the Rabbis travel out of State or to other Countries?
Rabbi Korngold is willing to travel to perform weddings, although the fee does increase to account for the additional time away from the office required for o travel.

Q:How does the payment process work?
A: Wedding couples pay a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold the wedding date. The final 50% will be charged on the day before your wedding. We accept Visa, Master Card and AmEx. Dates are not held until the deposit is received.
