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.

Sara was absolutely wonderful from the moment we met her. Her warmth, joy, and careful attention to detail made the entire experience outstanding! After our ceremony, we received floods of compliements on Sara and her ability to make our ceremony the best they have ever attended!

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.

Rabbi Shonfeld was amazing! We received so many compliments from our guests, she was funny and entertaining. Rabbi Shonfeld worked with the wedding couple to create the kind of ceremony they wanted and she told their story and made it very personal. Thank you Rabbi Shonfeld for participating and helping make 9/2/18 a day we will always remember.
Sara does a great ceremony
