The Jewish wedding is one of the most powerful and richly varied traditions. Whether you would like to have a Jewish wedding or a wedding with Jewish flavors, I can help you craft a beautiful and moving ceremony that is right for you. As your wedding officiator, I can also provide ceremony music and even hora music for after the ceremony! I have been leading Jewish ritual, prayer and music for twenty years and have served for the last twelve years as a spiritual leader, meditation teacher and music director at Chochmat HaLev (synagogue) in Berkeley, California. I will travel. Please contact me and we can set up a phone conversation. I look forward to working with you!
“Brian Yosef Schachter-Brooks officiated our wedding, but he did much more than that. Brian met with us in the planning stages to offer us his spiritual and creative guidance in shaping our ceremony. He listened carefully as we described our hopes for the day, and highlights we wanted to include, and showed us ways to weave them together with other ideas we hadn't considered. His deep understanding of and respect for the Jewish tradition, combined with his incredible artistic sensibility resulted in a ceremony that was incredibly moving and uplifting to us and to our guests, and was unique to my husband and I. We cannot recommend Brian highly enough.”
