Lifecycle Needs

Rabbi Marcia brings a sophistication and joy to all that she does. Her life cycle rituals and ceremonies enhance the lives of all who come to them because each event is welcoming, inclusive, participatory, emotionally engaging, musical and still intimate and very personal.

Baby Welcoming

We can create a ceremony large or small, very public or very private, for your family to welcome your new baby into the lineage of our people.  Lets talk about how to create a magical ceremony for bringing your new baby into the covenant!


Bar / Bat Mitzvah

For many years my husband, Cantor Jack Kessler, and I have helped families for whom the mainstream Hebrew School environment is not adequately stimulating or spiritually enriching, to create a custom program of learning in preparation for a really meaningful bar/bat mitzvah experience.



A Jewish wedding is not just a ceremony. It is a journey. Nor is the rabbi an "officiant". Rather, the rabbi you choose to accompany you on this journey is a facilitator and guide.



If someone in your family has died, or is nearing the end of life, I can assist you in this time of transition or loss.
As a therapist, I can help you grieve. As a rabbi I can help you walk the mourner’s path using all the wisdom that Jewish tradition offers.
