Introduction: My name is Rabbi Ivan Browner, and I am a available to perform both traditional and same-sex marriages as well as other joyous life cycle events. As the rabbi and spiritual Leader of Congregation Ner Tamid Shel Torah, I believe that all of people, both as individuals as well as a community, have an infinite capacity to expand, grow and learn. As our world continues to get smaller and more connected, interfaith couples, same-sex couples as well as traditional Jewish families are flourishing and being nurtured by love, which is humanities greatest teacher. To this end, people of Jewish faith and other members of our human family are becoming closer than ever before. I find great joy in celebrating all the milestones and experiences that life has to offer, whether it be the joyous beginning of a newborn child's life, a young b'nai mitzvah accepting the commandments for the first time, a marriage ceremony where the spirit of love is celebrated with simcha, or the blessing of a new home or business. I am a rabbi who will truly listen to the desire of your heart, and I will help to create a festive celebration that resonates with your spirit and honors our tradition as well.

Rabbi Ivan was wonderful at my wedding. I couldn't choose a better person to do my wedding. He is a very spiritual man, kind and new how to conduct the ceremony from the begging to end. All my friends told me that they got very emotional and love Rabbi Ivan. He is excellent in what he does!!! : )

FAQs

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    Since I was a young man, I had the feeling like something was missing deep within me. That yearning percolated within me and finally surfaced as an intense desire to delve into the study of spirituality and search for the answer of why I felt this way. In true to life form, as my questions were being formed and asked, a path which led to understanding these deep questions was revealed. It was at this time that I was introduced to the study of martial arts and meditation. I know most people would think that the study of martial arts is about as close to Judaism as a ham sandwich is to a rabbi, but in truth the enriching study of martial arts is what set me on the path back to my Jewish Heritage. During this time, I was also blessed to have been exposed to other rich spiritual traditions ranging from Japanese Zen meditation to the study of Yoga. These studies helped open my eyes to the difference between personal experiences over mere book knowledge, Amazingly enough, the path of discovery I was treading finally brought me full circle as I found the path of Spiritual Judaism to be even more rich and vibrant than any tradition of Far East origin. It ended up being my Jewish martial arts instructor who helped me find my way back to the study of Torah, Mitzvot and Jewish Meditation. Since that time I have continued to study and learn through the help of many gifted rabbis and spiritual teachers who all have become powerful influences in my life journey.
