South Florida Local Networking Group Meeting

Wednesday, September 28th

6:30 - 9:00 pm at

Brimstone

Join us for networking and education

Cantor Debbi Ballard will be speaking on Jewish and Interfaith Weddings

Today’s Jewish and Interfaith wedding is MUCH more than a chuppah and the Lord’s prayer!  The modern Jewish and Interfaith wedding family is multi-dimensional.  Blending the wedding of 2 people with very different faiths and ethnic origins can be confusing to say the least!

 As a leader and expert in the industry, Cantor Debbi will highlight the challenges we face as vendors serving this demographic, and explain how she uses tolerance, love, and humor to effectively serve the Jewish/Interfaith community. 

 As founder of the Jewish and Interfaith Wedding Institute, Cantor  Debbi will share her philosophy in educating vendors at the highest level to most effectively prepare them to serve this growing and diverse population.

Thank you to our sponsors!
