Weddings are Rabbi Jon's specialty! His welcoming, inclusive nature lends itself perfectly to your special day. In addition to Traditional Jewish Ceremonies, his expertise includes:
Interfaith, intercultural and non traditional wedding ceremonies are quickly becoming more popular in the United States as more and more couples of different faiths and ethnic cultures merge their lives in marriage. Many couples seek a creative and personalized ceremony, but may need guidance on how to identify the right rituals, blessings, text and language, and how to appropriately blend in elements from both their traditions.
This is where Rabbi Jon Nelson comes in! He will help you in creating a loving and meaningful ceremony that will honor and reflect both partners and their extended families. As a bonus, he also wrote his Rabbinical Dissertation on "Jewish Humor"... so he's glad to tell a joke or two if permitted!
Rabbi Jon also has experience working in partnership with clergy from other faiths and denominations as a co-officiant.

Your wedding, your way!
We had the best wedding ceremony! Jon was an amazing Rabbi. He took the time to get to know us and that shined throughout our ceremony. His personality and humor was natural and made us feel comfortable. Our guests also commented on how great the ceremony was! We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend Jon. Our day was really perfect! ~ Jamie J. / Barrington, RI
If you are looking for an Officiant, we highly recommend Rabbi Jon. He officiated at our interfaith wedding in Newport, RI and brought a musical beauty to our special day. He took the time to meet with us and really map out the type of ceremony we envisioned, creating the perfect blend of our faiths. He is very kind, and a natural leader, working to make our marriage ceremony so special. Thank you so much, Rabbi Jon! ~ Emma S. / Boston, MA
Rabbi Jon was all we had hoped for, and more! His ability to make all of our guests comfortable and his singing and wonderful sense of humor really made the day for us. I can't recommend him highly enough! ~ Brad. P. / Nashua, NH
Jon officiated my brothers wedding and made it the most special event for our entire family. He is incredibly charming and warm and personalized every bit of his officiating duties. Having the ceremony be so special truly makes this day one you will never forget. All of the guests were just as moved as our family was. I can speak for my entire family when I say hiring Jon Nelson to officiate your wedding is the easiest decision of the entire wedding process. ~ Lauren C. / New Bedford, MA
Rabbi Jon would love to write you a personal song about your love story. He can sing it at your ceremony and even have it professionally recorded. Please take a listen to a song he wrote for his wife when they were married.
