Jewitch Wedding Resources
If you are a Jewitch looking for ways to incorporate traditional Jewish elements into your wedding, and still have it resemble your spiritual path there are many options. Below are a few resources that may help. I’ll update this page as I find new resources that may be helpful.
I’ll try to develop a list of Jewitch-friendly rabbis, but I do want to recommend my good friend and colleague Angela Roberts. She is the Celebrant of Becoming and, although not Jewish, well versed in writing wedding ceremonies for Jewitches and Jewish-Pagans. She is currently able to perform ceremonies in Maryland and the District of Columbia, and soon should be able to be licensed almost anywhere.
One thing to keep in mind is that anyone can perform a ceremony. If you truly can’t find someone the state will recognize, consider having the legal part taken care of at the courthouse and having someone that will bring spiritual meaning to your actual ceremony perform that.
While a traditional Ketubah may not be appropriate, there are newer versions that have different texts and designs. MP Artworks, http://www.mpartworks.com/, has a variety of stunning Ketubot designs and texts perfect for Jews and Jewitches alike.
This is a great way to bring a little nature and tradition into your ceremony. Chuppahs can be as simple or elaborate as you like. Once again, MP Artworks has a great selection. The prices may seem high, but consider how much you spend on everything else. If nothing else it may inspire you to create your own.
