Wedding (and other Life Cycle) Officiation


Due to the large number of requests Rabbi Fred Scherlinder Dobb receives to officiate at weddings and other life cycle events, he is generally able to officiate only at those of members of Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation, and their children. Having an open and inclusive yet traditionally-oriented attitude toward ritual (i.e. intermarriage when the choice has made to create a primarily Jewish household, supportive of same-sex couples, not doing weddings on Shabbat or holidays, etc), he requires an in-person meeting with couples before agreeing to officiate at any wedding. If you have any questions concerning your upcoming Jewish wedding, please feel free to contact the office of Rabbi Dobb, at 301/767-3333 x108.
