May 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Crafting a Meaningful Ceremony

Planning a wedding? Learn about the Jewish elements of a wedding ceremony and the deeper meaning behind rituals like breaking the glass, standing under a chuppah, circling seven times, and more. Get creative ideas from 18Doors Boston Community Manager Molly Kazin Marshall who got married mid-pandemic, and Rabbi Michal Woll, 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow. We’ll also discuss special considerations in this unique time of Zoom weddings, and connect you to useful wedding planning tools available through 18Doors.

This session is part one of a four-week series on planning a Jew-ish/interfaith wedding. Register for one session, a few, or all four! Individual sessions are $15/couple. Register for all four events for a discounted price of $45/couple.

Molly Kazin MarshallMeet Molly Kazin Marshall

As Boston’s Community Manager for the Boston Innovation Hub, it’s Molly’s passion to connect interfaith couples in the Boston area to resources and tools unlocking aspects of Jewish culture and traditions. With a passion for food and drink, Molly enjoys visiting the numerous breweries in the Boston area, plus baking and cooking at home. Kugel is one of her favorite foods, and is one of the few ways she will tolerate raisins. She especially loves hearing her friends who have never had kugel try to pronounce the word.

Rabbi Michal WollMeet Rabbi Michal Woll

Rabbi Michal Woll is rabbi of Congregation Shir Hadash in Milwaukee and a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She is a third career rabbi, with corporate and clinical experience that manifests through her interests in end-of-life care and medical ethics. Rabbi Michal brings love of music, learning, justice and creativity to her rabbinate. At Shir, Michal is fostering a more urban, inclusive, progressive and activist Jewish presence in the city of Milwaukee, where she is involved in interfaith justice work and dialogue.

Rabbi Michal lives with her husband, author Jon M. Sweeney, their daughters Ana and Sima, and their aging mutt, Max. In 2013, Michal and Jon co-authored the book, Mixed-Up Love: Relationships, Family, and Religious Identity in the 21st Century (Hachette). Their relationship and family has been profiled in national media.
