Interfaith Imam in NYC?

Hi Everyone,

My fiance and I are an interfaith couple - I am Muslim and he is Jewish. We will be having a Muslim ceremony, but are having a very difficult time finding a Muslim Imam willing to marry us. There is debate on whether a Muslim female can marry outside of the faith, but we know there are interfaith Imams out there! We have found some non-religious officiants who can include aspects of a Muslim wedding in our ceremony. Unfortunately, my parents are conservative and want a practicing Imam, respected by the community to officiate. This has been the most challenging aspect of the wedding for us and we desperately need to find someone. Anyone know of an interfaith Imam in NYC or surrounding areas?

Thanks so much!

    I am Jewish and my husband is muslim. His family belongs to a mosque in westchester and their imam married us even though i won't convert. he was very cool about the whole thing and kept the niikah short, sweet, but meaningful and did most of it in english. if you send me a private message i can give you his info. i can't guarantee he will travel to nyc from westchester but its worth a shot.
