Hello. My name is Steve Blane and I am a Rabbi and Cantor. In addition to performing Jewish weddings, I officiate (or co-officiate) at Civil, Non-Religious, Interfaith, Spiritual and Same-Sex weddings or vow-renewals.
I also officiate at Bar & Bat Mitzvahs, Baby Namings, Funerals.
I frequently perform civil weddings in Central Park. I'm the only rabbi I know who rides up on his bike (and now I often use my Xootr Scooter Kick Scooter) to officiate at wedding ceremonies!
I am based in New York City and I will officiate anywhere in the world at any ceremony that celebrates love and commitment between two people. I've officiated in Turks and Caicos and Cancun many times and I offer my skills and lifetime of experience to guide and accommodate you in every possible way.
I also prepare students for their Bar or Bat Mizvah Ceremonies via Skype/Facetime and I will also lead services on their special days at the location of your choice.
Having your Jewish Wedding, Interfaith Wedding, Civil, Non-Religious or Same-Sex Wedding officiated by me, you can trust that I will provide you with exactly the type of ceremony you request- from a simple exchange of vows and rings through a more spiritual ceremony or a traditional wedding filled with ritual. It is totally up to you!
