Rabbi Ron Broden Performs Traditional and Interfaith Ceremonies
An interfaith wedding is a reality in our nation today. The number of such marriages is escalating to an increasingly higher percentage. In an open society the formation of relationships between men and women of opposite ethnic and religious backgrounds is both natural and predictable. When two people of different faiths and backgrounds can come together to form the most intimate of unions, that is, indeed, a reason to celebrate!
Whether as a New York interfaith wedding rabbi or a New York Jewish wedding rabbi, I approach each ceremony individually and creatively. Together we will construct a ceremony that will reflect your union and the fundamental beliefs that you share. I am proud to be called an interfaith wedding rabbi/cantor and love celebrating such unions. Why so many of my colleagues distance themselves from an interfaith wedding out of concern for being called an interfaith wedding rabbi goes against my principle beliefs. I am glad to travel the Tri-State region to perform such weddings as well as beyond.
We will meet initially to gather information regarding your needs and desires as well as help you with the elements that you wish to include in your ceremony. I will share with you some suggestions and ideas towards making the wedding just right for you. During our time together, you will have an opportunity to get a sense of my style and presentation. I believe that it is extremely important to share all details with you so that you will not have any surprises. The last thing you want is to be surprised by a statement that you didn’t expect to hear as you share this time with family and friends. I will perform the entire ceremony for you as it is being created. This eliminates any anxiety on your part so you can be rest assured that your ceremony will come off just as you have planned.
I can serve as a New York interfaith wedding rabbi and a New York Jewish wedding rabbi in compliance with the laws of every state in our country. I am also fluent in Spanish and Italian as well as Hebrew and have conducted ceremonies incorporating other languages.
When both the bride and groom feel more comfortable with clergy of their own faith sharing a meaningful role in the ceremony, I will be happy to co-officiate with any representative of the clergy whom you choose. I am glad to recommend clergy with whom I have worked or know their reputation if you need assistance in that process.
About Rabbi Ron Broden

In later years, I went back to school to further my Jewish education to become an ordained rabbi.

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.
