    A few of the girls have asked me if I ever found a Rabbi, and I did, so I thought I would post his info here. He is an American who relocated to Cancun in July, so he speaks perfect english.

    His name is Rabbi Mendel Druk, and here is his info:

    Chabad-Lubavitch of Cancun
    Ave. Antonio Enr­quez Savignac, Cond. La Noria dto.
    D1 Frac El Table, m4 L4 B-4 SM 1
    Cancun, Quintana Roo 77500 Mexico

    Phone number: 521-998-219-5601

    His website is Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center of Cancun

    In the end, FI's parent's asked me to use their Rabbi from NY which was fine with me, so we ended up not using him. I didn't speak to him myself, but my sister did and she said he was great. Even after we decided not to use him she called for help finding kosher food in Cancun and he was really helpful.


    Let me know if you need more info!

      You probably don't have any idea, but do you happen to know if he'd be willing to perform an interfaith marriage if the bride is Jewish, the groom is atheist and not willing to convert, but the couple is going to raise the children Jewish?

      that's great, I know we've had a couple of people ask about this.

        I have no idea, but it doesn't hurt to send him an email to ask. Oh, and not that I am encouraging you to lie to a Rabbi, but if it were me I would just ask if he performs interfaith marriages and leave out the part about FI being an atheist... that whole, don't believe in god thing might throw a wrench in your plan.... WOW, I feel guilty just writing that! On second thought, tell the truth!

            Not sure why my post was reposted :). You think believing in another faith that may eventually interfere is better than just taking a step back from religion in general? Hmm. I would have thought the opposite, but maybe I'll just keep the email simple!

              Oh I just realized his is Lubavitch which is pretty Orthodox so no point in asking :).

                  Hey
                  Happy New Year!
                  We spoke to him. He said that he wasnt able to do our wedding because he doesnt really know us and we are not Orthodox. Plus there will be no kosher food at out wedding. I was really upset. We are trying to find one here to fly out to RM.

                    Just wanted to say good luck everyone, it's tough to get a minister of any faith to fly out for a DW. I would definitely start at the place where you worship and try to get a referral :o)
