Does anyone have a Rabbi officiating their wedding the weekend of May 17, 2009?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Unfortunately the Rabbi in Cancun doesn't do weddings sad.gif

 

I wanted to know if anyone getting married in the Cancun/RM area also needs a rabbi my weekend - maybe we can split the costs of travel/accommodations. Of course we would need to be getting married at different times.

 

I am getting married at the Azul Sensatori on Sunday, May 17th - Time to be determined.

Hi,

 

I had the same issue as you. I contacted the Chabad of Cancun and they told me their is a rabbi in Tijuana that does weddings.

 

Rabbi Polichanco from Tijuana is available to do weddings, he can be reached (619)726-4645

Chabad without Borders: Chula Vista & Tijuana

 

 

 

Also, there is a rabbi in California that has a veryyy reasonable cost and accomodation request. This was his assistant's answer: "Flight, transfer and accommodation expenses. He doesnâ€t need 5 star accommodation (please avoid having him sleep on the beach) and he pays for his own food." And flight should be really cheap from San Diego.

 

Pacific Synagogue - Jewish & Interfaith

 

 

I definately got frustrated with this search and spoke to my family rabbi back home who whole heartedly told me we do not need a rabbi for a "kosher wedding". So we decided to have a civil ceremony in US and a chuppah in RM Mexico. We will still have all the jewish traditions, but a close family friend who attended yeshiva will officiate the ketubah signing and blessings and excahnge for rings. For a kosher chuppah all you need is proper witnesses, a kosher ketubah and exchange of rings.

 

Good luck!
