JP familiar with Jewish Ceremonies?

My FI is Jewish and I'm an atheist. We want a JP to perform our ceremony but we want them to be familiar with a Jewish traditions because we want to incorporate some of it into our ceremony. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: JP familiar with Jewish Ceremonies?

  • Most of the JPs I spoke too didn't have a lot of religious training.  We chose a celebrant- celebrants are basically JPs who are familiar with different customs from different religions.  We LOVED our celebrant- she created a custom ceremony for us that consisted of:
    Ring ceremony
    Love story
    Bible reading
    Glass breaking
    two Hindu rituals

    We had a tall order and she created a beautiful, seamless ceremony.  She does many completely none religious weddings that are complete and meaningful, or ones that include religious traditions.  Her name is Kezia Bacon.
