Rabbi Sultar is available for counseling and guidance at any stage of your relationship, engagement or wedding plans. Finding a rabbi to officiate at the most intimate moments of your life is no easy choice (even the flowers take great consideration). We encourage you to arrange a time to meet as a couple with the Rabbi and learn about the rabbi's style and approach and for the rabbi to learn a little about you (dating never ends. . .)
Traditionally couples have an aufruf on a Shabbat (or Monday or Thursday when the Torah also is read) prior to the wedding. An aufruf (calling up) is a celebratory aliyah to the Torah, where you and your partner will say a blessing before and after the Torah reading. It is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate your marriage with the Jewish community and all of Israel, as expressed in the seven wedding blessings.
