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

Recommended Posts



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.

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

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!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
