Hi, I'm Danny, Chazan and professor, with more than thirty-five years of experience officiating Jewish ceremonies that include the entire cycle of life.
I have experience and knowledges to help make the wishes and dreams of couples who are going to get married, come true.
I officiate traditional Jewish wedding ceremonies, interreligious, ecumenical mixed weddings (accompanied by a Catholic Officiant), egalitarian between people of the same sex, and Bat / Bar Mitzvah.
I was born in a traditional Jewish family, with its origins and customs in Eastern Europe. My parents gave me formal Jewish education from preschool to tertiary level.
Since my childhood, I have learned with admiration, enthusiasm and delight, history, traditions, customs, experiences and the particularity of Jewish life.
Among all the singularities of Judaism, I am fascinated by its perdurability, its adaptation to society, in different periods of time and places without losing its ancestral essence.
People, a tradition, a culture, a religion over four thousand years old that have evolved, modernized and constantly adapted over the centuries to different societies and realities. But with very firm roots, based on ethics, values and spirituality. Accepting the challenges of each generation and always knowing how to respond.
Fortunately, nowadays society has evolved. Reality shows unequivocally a path towards integration, equality and tolerance. Within Judaism there are currents that have been able to interpret this new reality and accept it as part of this new society.
I received a traditional conservative Jewish education. I spent some time studying at a Lubavitch Orthodox Yeshivah in the United States, which allowed me to improve my knowledge of Judaism and my level of English.
I have had the chance and the opportunity to learn from great professors, such as the Chazanim Oscar Fleischer, Abraham Szmirevich; Rabbis Mordechai (Moti) Maarabi and Mordechai Edery.
Throughout my extensive career I have worked in several schools, institutions and synagogues in South America and Spain, as Chazan and professor.
I have a deep respect for conservative and orthodox currents of Judaism, I'm an expert and love traditional liturgy, which I learned in childhood and adolescence.
In Spain, I studied in depth the liberal reformist Judaism, with which I personally identify myself.
For me, preparing, organizing and performing ceremonies for the important moments of Jewish life, makes me live emotions of happiness, joy and belonging. I know that the chain continues over time, from father to son, and I feel that Judaism is alive and vibrant.
