My moniker says it all. As an Irish passport-carrying ordained rabbi, I specialize not only in interfaith weddings, but intercultural ones as well. Whether your spiritual mix is Jewish, Catholic with a dash of Zen, and your family roots are in Poland, Ireland and China, you can trust me to celebrate your union with the widest possible embrace of who you are.

Ordained by the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in 1991, I have been celebrating weddings, baby namings and bar/bat mitzvah ceremonies for over twenty years. I’m multilingual and I have cultivated a special outreach to the LGBT community.

I travel all over New England, Eastern Canada, the Mid-Atlantic states and now and again I travel to Europe. I will consider further distances as well. And if you are looking for a rabbi who will co-officiate, I will happily share the honors with your additional choice of clergy.

Although neither born nor raised in the Emerald Isle (my citizenship there is via my great-grandmother!), I am still very much the Irish tenor. My cantorial services are part of my role for you as rabbi.

Weddings are like snowflakes. Yours is one-of-a-kind.

Slán is Beannacht!

Peace and Blessings!

Shalom u-v’erakhah!

Rabbi Mark Newton was great! He met with us and got to know us on a personal level and we also had a chat with him a few weeks before the wedding for all of the final details. His ceremony was exactly as he described. We received so many compliments on the service, which is truly a reflection of Rabbi Newton's execution. He conducted the Ketubah signing and ceremony portions of our service very well. Thanks!

I am Jewish and my husband is catholic and Rabbi Mark Newton was incredibly easy to work with and helped us put together a ceremony that incorporated traditions from both religions. Rabbi Mark Newton knows an incredible amount about all different religions and helped to create a personal, warm, and unique ceremony that was perfect for us. I had many guests come up and comment to me after my wedding, how wonderful our ceremony was.

We love Rabbi Mark Newton! From the initial meetings to writing the ceremony to the ceremony itself, Rabbi Mark made the process easy and very enjoyable. Even more so, he really took the extra time to make our marriage special and unique to us. He went above and beyond our expectations. We also really appreciated his openness to recognizing our individual identities and how they were important in our marriage. We will keep in touch with Rabbi Mark always! -Claire & Dave

Rabbi Mark Newton was really such a pleasure to work with. From our first meeting with him we knew we wanted him to officiate our Jewish wedding. He was open to making the ceremony as religious or secular as we wanted. He is very personable, and always willing to meet up to go over anything. He was really organized throughout the whole process, and made it easy. He really made an effort to personalize our day and was open to making the ceremony truly ours. We highly recommend Mark Newton as an officiate.

Rabbi Newton was fantastic to work with for our recent wedding. He is incredibly thoughtful and inclusive, and was willing (and even excited) to meet with us several times before the wedding to talk with us about options for our ceremony. He was eager to allow us to combine elements from different cultures that were important to us - and even did extra research on best ways to include things we were interested in. He is an engaging speaker, and we received so many compliments on how wonderful our ceremony was or from friends and family who spoke with Rabbi Newton after the ceremony as well! Definitely made our ceremony extra special, and made sure that both Jewish and non-Jewish attendants felt very welcome and included in our day.

Rabbi Newton officiated our ceremony in Killington Vermont. He was incredibly easy to work with and great with correspondence. We had an interfaith ceremony and Rabbi Newton presented a number of options that allowed for respect for both sides. When performing the ceremony he speaks clearly, loudly, engaging the audience into the event. Rabbi Newton made sure that we both understood all aspects of the ceremony. Highly recommend!

Rabbi Mark Newton created the PERFECT ceremony for us! From the very beginning, I was looking for an officiant that was upbeat and fun-spirited. I really wanted someone with personality to marry us. Rabbi Mark is exactly the man we were looking for!! We are an interfaith couple, and from day one he made us both feel entirely comfortable and allowed us to craft a ceremony that was completely tailored to our shared wants and needs. He took the time to get to know us, and that showed in the way he spoke about us during the ceremony. He was always there for us at any point we needed him, and has stressed that he will continue to be there into the future. He is warm, funny and very knowledgeable for any questions you may have. He is also extremely accommodating - we needed to expedite our marriage license, and he personally drove to my home town the day after the wedding to hand deliver to Town Hall! We could not have been happier to have had Rabbi Mark marry us, and we highly recommend him to any couple looking for a fabulous officiant!

Rabbi Mark Newton is truly a fantastic person! My husband and I really wanted to combine both of our religions in a co-officiated ceremony (Jewish and Catholic) for our wedding and Rabbi Newton was happy to help. He worked with us to develop the perfect wedding script and had fantastic suggestions about how to make sure our wedding ceremony everything we had hoped for while also respecting the religious beliefs of both families. In addition to speaking over the phone and Skype several times to get to know us, Rabbi Newtown drove several hours to meet us in person before our wedding. He is a great source of knowledge and advice, and we just can't thank him enough for making our wedding perfect.
