Private Ceremonies

Tamid rabbis are here to support you through all your Jewish transition moments: Hebrew Naming’s, Bar and Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, Conversion, Weddings, and Funerals and we look forward to getting to know you better. Please give us a call at 646.360.0689 or send an email to one of our rabbis or to and we’ll set up a time to speak.

Weddings: Our rabbis perform Jewish weddings for couples in New York, straight and LGBT. We will perform a Jewish ceremony for a Jew and a non-Jew with a few conditions that we’ll discuss at our first meeting.  And if we cannot meet your needs, we’ll share our list of rabbinic colleagues with you.

Hebrew Naming’s and Baby Naming’s: One of the greatest gifts is to welcome a child into the Jewish People by giving them an official Hebrew name. We can do this at a Friday night service, in your home, or at another event space.


Bar and Bat Mitzvah: The coming of age ceremony at age 13 is one of the highlights of Jewish family life. To learn more about our 1-1 private training program, click here.

Confirmation: 9th/10th graders spend the entire year studying with rabbis and educators. Redirect to our Confirmation page – click here

Conversion to Judaism: Choosing to live a life as a Jew is a unique and special pathway in life and we are here to support this transition in your life. Rabbi Lisa Rubin, Director of Exploring Judaism and Conversion Studies, at Central Synagogue is a wonderful resource of information as well as the course facilitator for Exploring Judaism. Please be in touch with Rabbi Rubin by calling her at (212) 838-5122 Ext. 5002.

Funerals: Tamid rabbis have relationships with the funeral homes in New York and are here to care and to support your family at this important time.
