Rabbi Judy

wedding officientI have just created a website for my Rabbinic offerings. You can find the site at Rabbi Judy’s website

I am so pleased by the historic decision our Supreme Court made on June 26, 2015 to recognize the love of two people who wish to marry regardless of their gender. Love is a beautiful thing and love is the key to bringing peace to our world. I am happy to perform same sex marriages and interfaith marriages. Please give me a call if you are interested at 318 442-8863 or email me at judy@rabbijudymusic.com

About Rabbi Judy

In Jan., 2014, after almost 30 years of study, I received my rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute (JSLI) in New York. JSLI is a rabbinic program that takes life experience into account (and I had plenty of that). I studied with 16 other candidates in a virtual classroom online, met other requirements and completed a thesis titled “Nurturing Our Souls” prior to ordination.

JSLI stresses training for real life situations (weddings, funerals, worship services, visiting the sick, etc.) and advocates inclusion of all, especially interfaith families and the unaffiliated.

I am available not only to provide music for your Jewish service or event, but also to serve as Rabbi, Kol Bo or Spiritual Leader. I specialize in making life cycle events and worship services meaningful and special. From Tot Shabbat to High Holy Days, weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, worship and holiday services, funerals and unveilings, I am available to serve. I hope you will call on me for a special occasion in your life or the life of your congregation. I am happy to send audio samples of music or written samples of sermons.
