She is absolutely the best!! Rabbi Rayzel worked with us to make the ceremony ours and it couldn't have turned out more perfect. Everyone at our wedding loved the ceremony and absolutely loved Rabbi Rayzel!! We loved that she explained everything about the ceremony, so all of our guests who weren't familiar with Jewish customs could better understand. Everyone had nothing but positive things to say. Rabbi Rayzel also helped us a lot before the ceremony. She provided a sort of "pre marriage counceling" if you will. It got my wife and I talking about things we wouldn't have thought to discuss. We can't recommend Rabbi Rayzel enough!!!

We had Rabbi Rayzel lead our interfaith ceremony, and loved her! Neither of us are very religious, but wanted to keep some tradition in the ceremony that would appeal to our different backgrounds, and she did a wonderful job including both of us. She offers great advice and ideas. Would definitely use Rabbi Rayzel again!

Rabbi Rayzel was amazing. She performed our ceremony in the New York area, and we were so glad we hired her. She worked with us ahead of the ceremony to make sure it was everything we wanted, and we got great feedback from all of our guests. We loved the energy so brought to our wedding - it was sweet, inclusive and incredibly warm. We highly recommend her as a wedding officiant!

Rabbit Rayzel preformed a beautiful interfaith ceremony for us! The service was just the way we imagined and wanted it to be. We also got a ton of compliments from our guests. They said it was probably the most fun they had ever had during a ceremony and loved how personalized it was! Rabbi Rayzel was more than willing to work with our budget and traveled quite far to be with us on our special day. Thank you again, it wouldn’t have been the same without you!

My Pleasure ! the day was beautiful and loved the handmade huppah!

Rabbi Rayzel was a pleasure to work with and we were so fortunate to have her officiate our "interfaith" wedding. She helped customize our service to our values and taught us many customs and their meanings, and help implement them in our service. We felt like it came together as well as it possibly could have. She worked seamlessly with the minister. She really got to know us and let us shape the ideals of the service and guide us to what was important to us. I absolutely recommend Rabbi Rayzel!

Working with Rabbi Rayzel for pre-marriage counseling and wedding ceremony was one of the best decisions we made. As an interfaith couple we enjoyed learning about each other's traditions in order to create our own. We attended several gatherings at Rabbi Rayzel's home and met with other couples making the same decisions we were faced with. Our ceremony was very personalized and Rabbi Rayzel even co-officiated with a priest since it was important for us as a couple to have representation from each of our religions. We are still getting many rave reviews and compliments about our ceremony and particularly Rabbi Rayzel. Would definitely recommend working with her.

Alec and I loved having Rabbi Rayzel officiate our wedding. Everything about the ceremony was perfect - which was 100% Jewish (not an interfaith marriage). She made the ceremony so intimate and special. It was wonderful working with her throughout the entire process - she really got to know us. I can't wait to see the video from the videographer so I can relive our wedding day and watch the ceremony over and over again! If you are looking for an officiant to do your Jewish wedding or Interfaith, look no further. Rabbi Rayzel is the best! :)
