Interfaith Weddings

Jewish Cantor or Rabbi for an Interfaith Ceremony?

Help! Does anyone know where to find a rabbi or cantor that would be willing to co-officiate an interfaith wedding ceremony? We are having our wedding in St Paul, MN but aren't having any luck finding anyone that is even within the state! If anyone has suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

    i know this may be obvious but did you try interfaithfamily.com?  they have a thing where you can input where you live and they'll send you names of people near you who officiate.

    i've also seen several that will travel from wherever they are located...

    We are working with an interfaith clergy group (http://www.interfaithclergynetwork.com/kindclerg.html) that are often willing to travel to help interfaith couples!

    Let me know how it works out!

    We had to go out of state to find a rabbi for an interfaith ceremony.  As the father of a friend, he really went to bat for us and delivered a beautiful ceremony.  In our area, we were unable to find a local rabbi who was wiling to perform an interfaith ceremony.  Most of the temples in the area are conservative.  Our visiting rabbi is a reform rabbi.

    As "jandc426" suggested, we offer a free Jewish clergy referral service. Tell us where you're getting married, what you're looking for, and we'll email you a list of cantors and rabbis who officiate at interfaith weddings.
