Meet Yehudit Steinberg M.Ed. _ Fusion Wedding Expert
My name is Yehudit Steinberg, the Founder of JIWN (Jewish Interfaith Wedding Network) an online resource for Jewish Interfaith couples, families, affiliate organizations and wedding event professionals. I am also the Producer/Host at Think Grow Love Media, a digital production studio located in Las Cruces, New Mexico, [formerly San Francisco] where I offer courses, workshops and live video training for creative businesses, to rural and urban communities .
Founder and Director Jewish Interfaith Wedding Network
I have designed and produced over 500 globally inspired weddings with an emphasis on blending Jewish faith and traditions with other religions without offending or excluding anyone who participates, making them feel comfortable, while exceeding all expectations with the end result.
I partner with couples, their families and wedding professionals to ensure that the ceremony and traditions integrate with the entire event. My careful collaborative design ensures that everyone is heard and their vision comes to life.
In addition, I create personalized rituals to fit the lifestyles of the married couple to continue their families traditions using a practical approach to their daily spiritual needs and beliefs.
Most recently, the Jewish Fusion Wedding shop on Etsy has it Grand Opening in October 2019. In this shop you can find e-guides, workbooks, and ceremonies from different traditions. Over the Fall 2019, new products are going up every week as we build out our archive of wedding and ceremony planners we created over the 18 years we had a wedding event planner and officiating services in San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma Wine Country, Carmel and Big Sur plus our several trips to Mexico, Canada and other parts of the United States.
The Fusion Wedding Motto: Focus on our Similarities and Celebrate our Differences.
As a result, I also train wedding professionals how to collaborate with their couples on how to create an authentic wedding celebrations that involves two or more cultural and spiritual traditions to add value to the entire experience of the couple’s wedding. <join my group> interfaith weddings for wedding professionals
