Commitment Ceremonies

Commitment Ceremonies are an expression of your ongoing commitment as a couple. For information about having a commitment ceremony at TBS or officiated by Rabbi Neil elsewhere, contact Faith Norwick, Assistant to the Rabbi, at info@sftbs.org with any questions or for details on costs and date availability.

Vow Renewals
Weddings

Weddings are a Jewish expression of your legal commitment as a couple. You can have a wedding at TBS or Rabbi Neil can officiate elsewhere. 

Except in cases of immediate pastoral need, we do not perform weddings in the three weeks leading up to Rosh Hashanah, or during the High Holy Days, so that we can give all our attention to the wedding couple.

After years together, you and your spouse may want to re-affirm your wedding vows. Traditionally, vow renewals occur during Shavuot as a community event, but you can renew your vows at any time. For information about having your vows renewed at TBS or officiated by Rabbi Neil elsewhere, contact Faith Norwick, Assistant to the Rabbi, at info@sftbs.org with any questions or for details on costs and date availability.
