MODERN JEWISH COUPLES

you are welcome here

From religion to money, from politics to family, planning for a life together can get buried under endless wedding planning logistics and stress. Modern JewISH Couples supports you and your partner in the transition to married life, transforming your wedding preparation process from planning an event to investing time in planning for your future. For those modern Jewish couples who are already married and are preparing for another life event – welcoming new life (furry or human), a career or location move, and more – these conversations are vital for these life transitions, too.

PROFILE

of a Modern JewISH Couple

  1. You want to be intentional

  2. “One of us is Jewish but…” we are interfaith OR intercultural OR mixed heritage OR LGBTQ+ OR Jewish& OR dual faith OR spiritual but not religious OR both Jewish and want to invest in your relationship and find community

  3. Your preferred officiant is someone you know (which might mean they aren't clergy)

  4. You are stressed out by wedding planning/life

  5. And sometimes your parents have opinions or you're managing unexpected family dynamics
