Rabbi Rayzel officiated our wedding just a couple of weeks ago. It was a beautiful ceremony, she went out of her way to include personal elements of each of us and also took into account our level of religiosity. She was very flexible and wanted to make sure that the couple felt comfortable and happy with what was being included/excluded within the ceremony. After the wedding a lot of people came up to me to say that they had never seen a Jewish wedding that was so happy, beautiful and egalitarian. I highly recommend Rabbi Rayzel !

Rabbi Rayzel helped make our wedding less stressful. My husband is half Jewish so we had a hard time finding a rabbi that would marry us. Rabbi Rayzel worked with us to customize our ceremony to our liking. She was responsive and answered all our questions in a timely manner. We received many compliments on our ceremony.

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!

Thank you so much ! It was a beautiful day in New York!

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!
