eventful Moments

  • Is your role in life changing?

  • Are you moving to a new apartment?

  • Are you anticipating buying your first or a new home?

  • Is there a moment you want to acknowledge in the life of an animal companion?

  • In your affirmation of your identity, as you claim your name and live as your whole self, how do you want to celebrate? Possibly with a naming ritual or some other ceremony?

  • Do you want to welcome an infant or child to your family and community with a baby naming or a brit shalom?

  • Have you come through a harrowing medical experience?

Whatever the eventful moment in your life, if you want to find a way to bring more meaning to it, to mark it and share it with others, I would love to meet with you and design an experience that fits. When we meet to talk about what you are looking for, we will also talk about the fee.

Havdallah with the Hannan Family

My husband was not raised in the Jewish faith, and for the entire length of our relationship, when he asked me a Jewish question I could not answer, I would always say, “Ask Amy!” When he and I were preparing to welcome our second child, Amy and I discussed Hebrew names that would honor my grandmother. We also wanted to add a second Hebrew name to our oldest child’s name. It just made sense to ask Amy to say a few words at Bryce (Betzalel’s) bris. Her words still move me to tears two-and-a-half years after she shared them with us. Family and friends in attendance commented on how meaningful her words were. As I continue to navigate what it means to me to have a Jewish home, raise Jewish kids, and share my life with a partner who is committed to both without (at this point) choosing Judaism for himself, I remain ever grateful for Amy’s wisdom and gentle guidance.
