Weddings

Mazal tov on your engagement and forthcoming marriage! We are pleased that you are considering Beth Sholom Synagogue as the location for this important milestone on your life, and our clergy and staff are happy to assist you in making it the day of your dreams. 

Who May Marry at Beth Sholom?

You are not required to be a member of our Synagogue to be married at Beth Sholom, but both partners must be Jewish. If you have not yet given or received a get for a previous Jewish marriage, Rabbi Flanzraich can help you with that process. 

To assist you in establishing a Jewish home, we are pleased to offer a complimentary membership at Beth Sholom during your first year of marriage, and a significant reduction in membership contributions for the next two years.
 

Setting the Date

A Jewish wedding may not take place before sundown until an hour after sundown on Shabbat, any major Jewish holiday, during the three weeks before Tisha b’Av, or at certain times between Passover and Shavuot. If you have any question about whether a wedding is permissible on the date you have in mind, please consult with Rabbi Flanzraich.

Venues

Wedding ceremonies may take place in either the Sanctuary or Chapel. Our handcrafted huppah adds beauty and elegance to any wedding ceremony, or you may use your own. 

Beth Sholom has a kosher kitchen and several elegant rooms in which to host your reception. Please visit our Facilities & Catering page to learn more about celebrating a simhah at Beth Sholom.

Music

Music for the ceremony should be appropriate for a Jewish religious occasion. Cantor Moses is happy to consult with you on choices of musical style and arrangements. 

Aufruf

When members of the community are married, they can be called to the bimah for an aliyah on the Shabbat preceding the wedding. This tradition, called aufruf, allows the community to celebrate your upcoming marriage as well.
