Lifecycles

You’re getting married- Mazal tov!- and you don’t have a clue how to get a rabbi to do your wedding. You’re not a synagogue member- so who should officiate at your family funeral? Whom should you call to do your son’s brit milah (circumcision ceremony) or your daughters’ baby naming?

Rabbi Heydemann is happy to help you think through your next celebration or memorial, to create ceremonies that get at the emotional and spiritual side of life’s most important moments- baby rituals (brit milah-circumcision- and simhat bat- girls’ naming ceremony), b’nai mitzvah, weddings, divorces, and funerals.

Mishkan is a spiritual community and we love celebrating and supporting other people in the community. We encourage you to become a Builder, both because it feels great to know that you’re supporting and creating the Mishkan community, and also because Rabbi Lizzi only has only does life-cycle events for Builders at this time.  Please be in touch with Rabbi Lizzi to discuss Buildership, and to talk about creating your incredible wedding, baby naming or ceremony and making it fun, participatory, beautiful and deep.
