Weddings

Mazal tov on your engagement and upcoming wedding! At this sacred time in your life, Temple Beth-El clergy, staff, and community are honored to support you in the building of your Jewish home and in the preparation for your once-in-a-lifetime simchah (celebration).  

Temple Beth-El is an inclusive congregation and members of our clergy welcome the opportunity to work with Jewish, interfaith, and same-sex couples. We look forward to sharing this exciting moment with you.  

Step One: Contact the Temple Clergy member you would like to officiate your wedding to check their availability. To have a wedding at Temple Beth-El, you must have a Temple clergy member officiate or co-officiate with another Jewish clergyperson. Once you schedule the wedding with the officiating clergy, they will be able to answer questions you might have regarding their process, pre-marital counseling requirements, and the ceremony itself. 

Step Two: Please contact Dollie Closna at gro.asle-hteb@eillod to discuss the rental of any of our spaces.
