Hi There,


My fiance is Jewish and I am not. We are trying to plan a Jewish wedding ceremony in PDC Mexico and I was wondering how difficult it is to find a Rabbi? We would be getting married on Friday before sundown, but since I am not converting, I am not sure if this will cause a problem finding someone to marry us. Does anyone have any suggestions?

You do not need to convert to Judaism to be married by a rabbi. If you were getting married in a temple then it might be a problem b/c conservative temples won't let a reformed jew get married there, and orthodox temples don't allow conservative jews, etc. If you are not getting married in a temple then it's usually not a problem. However, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that only a reformed rabbi would probably marry you guys. I don't think a conservative rabbi and def not an orthodox rabbi would marry you if you are not converting. I know that there are rabbis in Mexico city but I'm not sure about other areas in Mexico, since Mexico is predominately a catholic country. Your best bet is to bring someone from home and fly them in. Or else you can go online and hire a rabbi. It really shouldn't be a problem. Then you will just have to get a chuppah (which looks a little bit like an arch) that is made from flowers and you will be all set for your jewish wedding.

I don't know if you have already worked out the rabbi situation, but I am in the process of tracking one down myself. Like Glenda said, most of the Mexican Jewish Community lives in Mexico city, but one of the WC's I talked to this week gave me a phone number for the Jewish Community Center in Cancun. It's 011 52 998 892 1006. I believe she said the rabbi/cantor is reformed so he may be open to performing an interfaith marriage.

Hope this helps!

    • Hi everyone! I have been doing lots of research on various wedding venues all around Mexico, my fiance wants a destination wedding and I am happy to have a wedding wherever so long as the vibe is right and guests are happy!  I have been seriously looking at Cabo Azul and was trying to find potential costs for them, but only found a page about their wedding costs from 2010. Does anyone have any updated information on costs / reviews they would like to share of this venue? Or advice in general, anything helps. Thanks so much, happy wedding planning to all!
    • Hello everyone, I am dreaming of a wedding in Costa Rica and was wondering if I could get any help with venues and wedding planners. I am thinking Tamarindo because a close friend of mine lives there and I've been in town more than a couple of times, she's being helpful but is at a loss when it comes to this subject really so I was wondering if anyone here had recommendations. I am not closed to other town suggestions either, if I happen to find a good place and staff somewhere else. These are the places I have so far, has anyone had any experience with any of them?  Stay In Tamarindo Luxury Villas in Costa Rica Luxury Villas Pinilla Tropical Homes of Costa Rica The Point Luxury Villa Thank you so much for your help!
