Rabbi Robin Sparr specializes in creating individually-tailored, spiritual, musical wedding ceremonies for Jewish and Interfaith couples of all religious and cultural backgrounds. I delight in developing personalized ceremonies which reflect the values and unique characteristics of each couple, making your one-of-a-kind ceremony the centerpiece of your special day. I welcome and will gladly officiate same sex / GLBT weddings and commitments. I am based in Greater Boston, but often travel throughout the US and abroad for destination weddings, and, while I usually officiate solo, I'm happy to work with a co-officiant from another faith. As an added bonus, my sweet soprano voice and skilled guitar-playing can enhance your ceremony musically if you wish.

I look forward to working with you to create the wedding ceremony of your dreams! Read less

Rabbi Robin is absolutely fantastic. She helped us to construct a deeply meaningful Jewish-ish wedding that set the stage for the most wonderful event of our lives. People say that, 'cause, lord, one imagines that it is possible and hopes it will happen for them...but for us it was and a lot of credit goes to finding the perfect Rabbi for us.

It turns out just having a Jewish wedding when marrying a non-Jew with no interest in converting is hard to do. We searched for Rabbis and were lucky enough to find someone who exceeded our expectations in every way.

Rabbi Robin was flexible with our busy medical school schedule, meeting with us in an evening at her home and doing video chats for both a first meeting and follow up ones. She took my call in a moment of crisis about a more religious family member not interested in participating in a blessing. She was reassuring and available.

Most importantly, she gave just the right amount structure and support to what was a pretty traditional wedding in all the ways we wanted, a tisch and bedeken (but the women also got scotch), seven blessings, mutual circling, a priestly blessing in Hebrew. But for each choice, which she presented to us at just the right time, we made ourselves. We made changes to the English prayers so that we could both feel them more honestly in our hearts. All of that was felt by our family and friends. They loved the whole wedding but most remarked on the ceremony. Thank you Rabbi Robin for helping us not make it too long.

While some people have wonderful friends who can marry them, and that is 100% the best choice for them, Rabbi Robin was able to create a personal ceremony that felt much bigger than us, it was connected to both of our families and to my Jewish tradition in ways that felt real and important to my partner.

The ceremony that we created with Rabbi Sparr was my favorite part of our entire wedding. My husband and I wanted to create a romantic, joyful ceremony that celebrated my Jewish culture and also integrated my husband's Catholic background. Rabbi Sparr was easy to communicate with on Skype, email, phone, and we also had a great in-person meeting. She provided an outline and made suggestions based on our preferences and provided a lot of material for us to use as a source for readings, as well as helpful checklists to prepare for our day and gave feedback on the vows we wrote. On the day of our wedding Rabbi Sparr was relaxed and calm and that made us feel so comfortable. The ceremony was lighthearted, spiritual, and romantic. She has a beautiful singing voice. We got such great feedback from our guests that the ceremony was so "us." We laughed, we cried, it was amazing! Can't ask for much more! It was a pleasure working with Rabbi Sparr and I highly recommend her as a wedding officiant.

Cantor Sparr was great. She was friendly and easy to work with. She made the process simple and the ceremony memorable. I had more than one person come up to me to let me know how wonderful they thought she was. Couldn't have wished for anything better.

We LOVE Cantor Sparr!!! She was SUCH an integral part of our wedding, and made it the magical day that we had dreamed of. We had a blast at every pre-wedding meeting, and she helped us through every step of the way. We were pretty overwhelmed by planning the wedding at first, but she made everything really clear and the whole process was easy and fun. The service that she prepared especially for us was so beautiful -- I loved that she used SO much information about our history and us as a couple and weaved it into the service. All night at the party, our friends and family were telling us what an incredible service we had.

I can't thank Cantor Sparr enough for helping make our wedding so beautiful and meaningful.

Ok, full disclosure right from the top. As you might have guessed from my name, Robin is a relative of mine - a second cousin, to be exact. In the past she has officiated at the weddings of two of my cousins, and last summer, at my own.

So while I can't claim complete objectivity, I can still attest that in overhearing comments by other guests who had no personal connection to Robin, there was a consistent consensus that the her ceremonies are infused with a genuine warmth, a relaxed sense of humor that puts everyone at ease, and a deep spirituality - all of which combine to make for an unforgettable experience for the bride and groom and their family and friends.

Her professionalism and organizational skills make her a delight to work with in the planning stages as well. She asks insightful questions, and is able to get a real and intimate feel for each couple, so that each ceremony is unique and personal - and not at all formulaic.

Finally, it should be noted that she has outstanding cantorial skills - a gorgeous voice, comprehensive knowledge of Jewish laws and customs, and can accompany herself ably on guitar.

Our wedding day could not have been more perfect, and Robin Sparr was a big part of that perfection.

Cantor Robin was recommended by a family friend for our interfaith Catholic/Jewish ceremony. She was incredibly flexible, positive, and warm-hearted. We had some stumbles in planning our wedding, but Cantor Robin was always there to provide suggestions and reassurance that our ceremony was going to beautiful. Our wedding was everything we could have wanted and it was all thanks to Cantor Robin for bringing the ceremony together for us.

Robin was genuinely interested in the story of our relationship as a couple and the important role that our history and experiences played in planning a meaningful ceremony. She guided us toward thoughtful and critical conversations but had no personal agenda in doing so. She was invested in incorporating our personal voices into the ceremony. She truly helped to make the most important part of our wedding such a joyful experience. Thank you Robin!

I highly recommend Cantor Robin's services. She is warm, friendly, professional, and truly cares about each individual couple she works with. From the day she met us she was very focused on making sure our special day was exactly the way we wanted it to be. She takes the time to get to know each individual person. She is always available and very responsive. Cantor Robin was flexible in meeting with us especially during our busy planning time. She made us feel very comfortable the entire process and even when we were standing in front of two people. We were thrilled with our ceremony, it was exactly as we envisioned. We are so glad we chose Cantor Robin to be part of our Wedding day!

Rabbi Sparr was absolutely amazing! We found her after we had a failed attempt with another Rabbi to make my husband (who is Catholic) and myself (Reformed Jewish) feel comfortable about having an interfaith wedding. Rabbi Sparr made both of us feel at ease and worked so well with my husbands Priest from his childhood. It truly was a dream to have her and have the ceremony of our dreams. It was so special and unique. Everyone complimented us on how great it was and how it was meaningful to both of us and our faiths. She was calm and collected and had everything under control the day of the wedding. It was perfect and we cannot thank her enough for her guidance and support and look forward to a continued relationship with her.

Rabbi Robin Sparr prepared us for and officiated our Jewish wedding ceremony this past April. She was very helpful in learning the customs and traditions involved in a Jewish wedding. Being Roman Catholic and my husband non practicing Jewish we had a lot to learn. Rabbi Robin was knowledgeable and helpful to complete all of the necessary steps leading up to the ceremony and helped us the day of the ceremony as well. She was very open to creating a ceremony that we felt comfortable with by having us pick readings, blessings and words that spoke to us and reflected us as a couple.
