Jewish and Interfaith Weddings
Cantor Jacqui will meet with you as many times as you require, guide you through a discussion of the various elements of a Jewish wedding, and support you in deciding which elements to include or adapt to make your ceremony exactly right for both you as a couple and your extended family.
The ceremony will reflect your unique relationship and love story as a couple, and will make all family members feel included. It will be the ceremony of your dreams!
Ahava is proud to officiate interfaith and same sex weddings.
“Cantor Jacqui is exceptional, and we feel so lucky to have had her officiate our interfaith wedding. She was extremely sensitive to everyone’s needs, easy to work with, flexible, and even funny!
It was obvious that she put a lot of time into crafting the perfect ceremony and experience for us and our families. She was our cheering section, our support, and our rock throughout this wonderful journey.
We never tire of hearing from friends and family how extraordinary our ceremony was. And her sweet, incredible singing voice was the icing on the cake!
We will be forever grateful.”

Dear Cantor Jacqui
Every now and again you meet someone who changes your life. While we are sure Natasha is too young to realize it - you have changed hers. A year ago we brought you a child full of potential but lacking the confidence to realize it. You have given her that and it is a gift that should last a lifetime. By extension you have also touched all of our lives. We are forever grateful.

The service was so beautiful! Jacqui, your voice is amazing. We couldn't have asked for a more meaningful service. Many people came up to us and said it was the best Bat Mitzvah service they had ever been to. Many of these comments came from Conservative Jewish uncles to Protestant and Catholic friends. Everyone felt welcome and part of the service. Thank you so much for giving Maddy the knowledge and confidence to do such an amazing job. We are so blessed and grateful. Thank you, thank you.
I still think of you, your special patience, sensitivity, natural intuition, and genuine understanding of Eric which enabled you to work with him so successfully. You stuck with him and influenced him to turn things around from not really wanting to do it to ‘wowing’ his family and friends. So thank you - for all you do!
