About Rabbi Melinda Bracha Bernstein

Shalom and Blessings Upon You! My middle name is Bracha and it means blessings, so how appropriate is it that you are about to receive blessings as you read on... At least I hope so!

My approach to Judaism is anchored by the consciousness of the heart, the passion of the soul and the delight of knowing the body. My passion stems from many years of ritual and ceremony, ancient chants, prayerful and subtle movement as well as sacred meditation to receive the intrinsic knowing of God. My covenant with God stems in the basics of compassion, understanding and love upon our neighbors of the earth.

I know that God manifests in a myriad of ways. Because of this, I share my comforts in knowing of the continuum between life and death and the importance of this world and the spirit world. I balance my divine service in the wedding and funeral industry and private consulting, creating depth, joy and comfort to those who she serves. “I’m a bit of a feminine mystic, and at this sage stage of my life, it’s a true blessing”.

Genesis 12:2 And You Will Be A Blessing

I bring my blessings to others with love, ease and grace and my attention to detail will put you at ease.

I will joyously perform a customized ceremony rich with love, life and humor at a location of your choice, just the way you want it…barefoot on the beach, at a resort, at a nature park, or simply in your backyard. Personable, professional and easy to work with, I have excellent references, see links below, and love my role as wedding officiant and funeral service leader!

As an ordained rabbi and proud mother and grandmother, I know that family and faith are at the forefront of every endeavor. I have also been a kundalini yoga teacher, a teacher of freedom dance, a jewish energy healer, life coach and am always focused on doing my best as a PHB (practicing human being).

I have spoken in Jerusalem, on the international stage, about love and relationships, taught "The Sacred Flirt", wrote two books and published one.

I support couples in premarital counseling and offer FREE Premarital Course and a FREE Roadmap To Everlasting Love guide to YOU! Go to my Contact Page and in the Subject Line, let me know what you want!

On the other end of the spectrum, I've helped many people through the trying times of mourning and grieving. I'm an affiliate of the Death Cafe and hold meetings on Zoom until my own death. I am doing this because I have personal experience of overcoming trauma, I supported my own father into his last breath and as his chariot brought him into the afterlife. My use of blessing stones has made our connection even stronger, as he was educated in geology and I bring the blessings of stones to all who know me.


I'm available for: Spiritual Ceremonies, Interfaith Ceremonies, Jewish Ceremonies, Nondenominational Ceremonies, Same-Sex Ceremonies, Vow Renewal Ceremonies, Formal or Informal Ceremonies, Large or Intimate Ceremonies. If you'd like to watch some samples, please contact me!

    Perfect officiant highly recommend

    There are absolutely no words to describe how grateful I am to Melinda for such a beautiful ceremony. She asked all the right questions to get to know us and integrated what she learned to make our day feel natural and unique to us. The vibe was perfect. She was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.

    We recently had the pleasure of working with Rabbi Melinda at a destination wedding in Exuma Bahamas! We were fortunate to connect with her the day prior to the wedding during the rehearsal dinner and from that moment during our initial meeting all the way through the wedding reception the next evening, she was a pleasure to work with! Friendly, professional, poised, and fun to be around! All excellent qualities to have in someone officiating your wedding! This was our first time working with her and we certainly hope to again in the future!

    Rabbi Melinda is an expert officiant who celebrates ceremonies with love, patience, and kindness. She openly embraces all people, and celebrates their ceremony specific to the client's personal desires and beliefs. She goes that extra mile with all of her clients, and ensures that the wedding day experience is heartfelt and memorable. Rabbi Melinda is a knowledgeable pre-marital counselor, and works with couples to ensure that their love for one another is embraced, fostered, and nurtured as they enter into this life covenant. I've had the pleasure to work along side Rabbi Melinda for some time now, and she comes to you with my highest recommendation!
