Blog on Jewish and Interfaith weddings     Blog about religion


I am Rabbi Lawrence P. Seidman. My approach to Judaism combines the heritage of three thousand years of Jewish spirituality and tradition with modern ideas and values. The phrase Rational Rabbi emphasizes this combination . I believe that this integration can make religious ceremonies and practices meaningful and valuable for all people. Religious practice must integrate all of our values and beliefs.

We don’t have to choose between spirituality and logic.

We don’t have to choose between science and God.

We can be Rational and Religious.


My approach to ceremonies, services, and teaching enables everyone to understand and participate. All activities enable the participants, whoever they are, to access the resources of Jewish wisdom.
