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.
Please contact Rabbi Jon below. He's looking forward to helping you craft a beautiful, inclusive ceremony!
Your wedding, your way!
"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 Rabbi Jon!"

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.
