My name is Ronald Broden and I want to welcome you to my website. I have been an ordained cantor since 1990. In later years, I went back to school to further my Jewish education to become an ordained rabbi. By any title, I am Reform Jewish clergy who has created a specialty in addressing the needs of the Jewish and interfaith community. Learn more about me and my credentials in the “About Us” section.
You can use the links on the main menu for details on many of my services including Jewish, Interfaith, LGBT, Non-Denominational and civil wedding ceremonies (I am a registered officiant in NY, NJ and CT but can perform destination weddings by providing you a copy of my marriage registration), as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah services, baby naming ceremonies, and funeral services. Click Here to read my article featured in the Interfaith Family website. I have many reviews on Wedding Wire of my work as an interfaith wedding rabbi which you can Read Here and on Mazelmoments as a Bar Mitzvah rabbi and Bat Mitzvah rabbi which you can Read Here. Many have found my site by searching for a New York Bar Mitzvah rabbi or New York Bat Mitzvah rabbi even though I am glad to travel throughout the Metro New York area and beyond. Others by doing a search for an interfaith wedding rabbi, rabbi rental or a rent a rabbi. However, you found me, I hope you will give me a call or contact me via the ‘Contact Us’ tab to the left.
I am glad to meet with you at a mutually convenient time and location for a no obligation, consultation. After getting to know more about me through this site, please go to the “Contact Us” page and indicate the kind of ceremony you are interested in. I will send you an email of a suggested ceremony for your specific occasion. Everything I do is tailored to your preferences; clergy referral sites simply provide contact information of a ‘rent a rabbi’ or ‘rabbi rental’.
I am centrally located in the Metro New York area. Should I be unavailable to perform your wedding, with your permission, I would be glad to refer an excellent colleague who would be.
