PET BLESSING CEREMONY

For the week of Parshat Noah

A short ceremony to occur on an afternoon during the week of Parshat Noah. We often forget the impact our animal companions have on our well being and it is important to include them in our regular rituals.

CUSTOM WEDDING CEREMONY

For an interfaith couple

A wedding ceremony should reflect the couple being married. Simone has had the privilege and the opportunity to work with a number of interfaith couples to create ceremonies that are unique to them while still remaining true to the Jewish tradition they feel drawn to include.

CREATION OF A NEW FAMILY

A brand new ritual

This is a prototype that has not yet been used. The purpose of it was to help a family envision how Jewish ritual can be created to help solemnize the creation of a new family - whether it occurs at a wedding or in another space.
