Mazal Tov on you upcoming marriage! 

Ohavi Zedek aims to support you during this important chapter of you lives!  We often have the privilege of providing couples:
  • Pre-marital counseling by clergy
  • Support for a meaningful wedding ceremony led either by a member of our clergy or a lay leader (registered officiant) from our community 
  • Aufruf (blessing before a wedding during services) for OZ members
To get started, please fill out this intake form.  Then, we will contact you to schedule a meeting with a member of our clergy.
 
We do not require you to be a member of OZ to be married with us.
If you are a member of OZ, please log in above, and continue to complete this form. 

 


 

 
















 
Please answer the question above before proceeding.
Great.  Here is some information about our community:

Ohavi Zedek (or OZ) was founded in 1885 by 18 Jewish immigrant families from Lithuania. Today, our vibrant, egalitarian and inclusive congregation is committed to embracing tradition while actively participating in our changing Jewish world. Our building was one of the first woman-designed synagogues in the US and home to wonderful wooded trails and the historic Lost Mural. Our community consists of hundreds of individuals and families from a range of Jewish denominations. We are a kehilla (a sacred community) where everyone is welcome, including inter-faith and LGBTQ families, all abilities, races and ethnicities. We offer learning and programs for all ages. Whether your interest in Judaism is spiritual, cultural or in Social Action (Ohavi Zedek means “Lovers of Justice!”), we hope you will find a home at OZ. We are a member of the United Synagogues of Conservative Judaism. We embrace our diversity as our greatest strength.

Please note that Ohavi Zedek charges a fee for people who are not members to cover costs associated with supporting their marriage.




OZ clergy officiate weddings at times outside of Shabbat (18 minutes before sundown Friday through after dark Saturday) and not during Jewish Holy Days.  Traditionally, our Saturday weddings take place after dark, in a Havdalah ceremony.

Please consult OZ's calendar and a Jewish holiday calendar like this one when considering your dates. 
We'll do our best to accomodate.

If you have any special needs, please let us know.

When you submit this form, a member of our clergy or staff will be in touch to schedule a time to speak.
