Hi. My name is Max and I became a Humanist celebrant in 2018. I am an attorney and live in Brooklyn. I’m a dog person, blue belt in Brazilian jujitsu and do the Polar Bear plunge in the icy waters of Coney Island every January 1.
I will gladly officiate at your Jewish, interfaith or non-traditional wedding ceremony, no ifs, buts or maybes! I will happily co-officiate with non-Jewish clergy, officiate on Friday night or on Saturday, and I will leave child rearing decisions to you. I have officiated over 400 weddings, since 2008. Located in Dallas, Texas, I will travel anywhere you need me to go (in the U.S. or abroad) to officiate at your interfaith wedding, and help make your special day truly wonderful.
Raul Martinez served as President of Humanists and Atheists of Las Vegas from 2014 to 2016 and as Member of the Board of the American Humanist Association from 2009 to 2013. In 2011, he became one of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed by the ACLU of Nevada for the right of atheists to perform marriages in the state. The lawsuit prompted the Legislature to change the law and to grant a secular option.
