Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
I am an ordained Interfaith Rabbi and an Interfaith wedding officiant. ,
I was born and raised in Israel where I studied education, music education and Jewish- studies.
In the past ten years I have had the honor to officiate Jewish, interfaith, spiritual, non-denominational, and civil ceremonies in Long Island, NY and the tri-state area. What a blessing it is to be part of my couples' most special day of their life!
My ceremonies are personalized, inclusive, welcoming, warm and joyful.
I will work with you to create the ceremony that you will feel most connected to. My goal is that every one of your guests will feel included and connected.
For Jewish and interfaith ceremonies, I chant the prayers and Blessings with the original melodies in native fluent Hebrew.
I work with each couple individually and tailor your own ceremony for you and your families. Often, I co-officiate a Jewish Interfaith wedding along with a priest, pastor, reverend, deacon and other religious ministers, I am respectfully open and accepting of all traditions and seeing them all as equal paths. I work with a diverse group of co-officiants to create a balanced and harmonious wedding.
Together, we will create a unique ceremony that will make your special day a day you will cherish and remember in your hearts forever.

Exactly What We Wanted
My fiance (now wife) and I wanted a civil ceremony with a little bit of Jewish tradition included, and Rabbi Sara gave us exactly what we were looking for! We had interviewed a couple other officiants before meeting with Rabbi Sara, and the level of professionalism and warmth exhibited to us right away made us certain that she was the right officiant for us. After our first meeting with Rabbi Sara, my wife said "she just felt like a great big hug!" and I seconded that emotion.
Rabbi Sara was very attentive to our requests and tailored our ceremony perfectly. I was raised Jewish but I am no longer observant in the faith, so we did not want to include any hebrew blessings/prayers, but did want to include some of the traditions to honor my heritage.
She gave us the opportunity to write our own "story" of how we met, our courtship, and my proposal. It was a major part of the ceremony, especially since we asked her to exclude any blessings or anything overtly religious. Her "performance" was perfect and she got great laughs out of our guests in all the right places. She also provided us with a binder of our ceremony "script" as a keepsake. Nice touch!
Lastly, her fee was very reasonable for the services provided. We cannot recommend Rabbi Sara enough! Several of the guests commented on what a perfect ceremony it was, that it was very "us".
Rabbi Sara, thank you for the perfect wedding ceremony!

Rabbi Sara is amazing!
Rabbi Sara & Rev Deb!
Thank you both so much for being wonderful and making it possible for Adam and I to have an amazing and unforgettable wedding. Everything was beautiful, the guests were happy and we were beyond pleased. Also, I wanted to say a personal thank you for the unexpected pieces, and making my Dad's memorial so lovely and appropriate. With the way the last 2 weeks have gone, there were a few loose ends that friends and family helped out with, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. We feel so fortunate to have been able to celebrate our day in such a beautiful space, thanks to Dad, we had perfect weather, and so many of our friends and family members commented on what a beautiful and personal ceremony you both provided.
Everything was so wonderful, and we couldn’t ask for more ❤️

The ceremony was absolutely amazing. We did everything from a sand ceremony to breaking of the glass. Sara's help was always a message away. My wife and I couldn't have asked for anyone better. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a officiant or rabbi. During the ceremony my wife had a slightly issue with the weather and wearing such a heavy dress. But Sara came right thru and handled it amazingly.
Sara does a great ceremony
