Weddings are a joyous and spiritual opportunity in Jewish life. Temple Judea is honored to host a wedding in our sanctuary or on our grounds, and our clergy also officiate off-site. Please contact Daphne Parker in the rabbinic office for more information at

Our clergy team stand ready to help prepare couples not only for the wedding but also for the marriage. We offer (free of cost) premarital counseling, utilizing a national program that helps prepare couples for the challenges of marriage. We also are happy to provide copies of “The Bride and Groom Handbook” which lists the basic traditions and practices of Jewish weddings.

We also strongly suggest that couples engage in premarital testing for Jewish genetic diseases. The University of Miami offers support for this important endeavor, 305-243-4524 (the Victor Center for Jewish Genetic Diseases).
