Rabbi Sara Shonfeld is one of my very favorite rabbis to work with. Based in the NY area, she officiates Jewish and interfaith weddings, often working together with clergy of other faiths. She infuses the ceremonies with joy, spirituality, and Jewish tradition. I have loved getting to know her through all of our mutual clients and it is a real treat to feature her as the first in my new Ask the Rabbi series!
What is your favorite part of being a rabbi?
How did you decide to become a rabbi?
There is a need for many couples who don't share the same faith and still want to include Jewish elements, traditions, and cultural aspect as part of their ceremony. It is important to me to be there for them and with them, on their wedding day.
What do you consider to be the most important value in a marriage?
There are many important values in a marriage! There are all connected and intertwined; Love, respect, devotion, faithfulness, shared values, happiness, trust, consideration, communication, motivating each other, understanding, laughter, and more.
What advice do you have for engaged couples as they plan their wedding and family?
Enjoy the process! Don't sweat the small things.
What is the most common mistake you see married couples make?
Remember how you fell in love in the first place and keep the romance going. Be attentive to each other, make time for one another, remember to send flowers, love notes, etc.
Remember not to let life get in the way of your love!
Holidays and Shabbat are very cultural and traditional. Through songs, blessings, stories, and food (of course) you can create a Jewish tradition in your own family.

I was the only non-English speaking kid in my second-grade class, until, three months later, a red-headed boy appeared in the classroom doorway, with the deer-in-the-headlights look immediately recognizable to fellow immigrant children everywhere. Twenty-four years later, I had the pleasure of making a custom ketubah for Yan and his beautiful wife, Jessica.

He knew she was the one when she was able to pick up on all his pop culture and sci-fi references. For her, it was when he started talking about how much he cared for his family, which includes his pets.
