I found a Rabbi in the RM/Cancun area

Recommended Posts

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 Enríquez 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?

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!

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)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
