Rabbi Barry was an incredible officiant at our wedding two weeks ago. I am Jewish but my husband and the majority of our guests were not Jewish but every single one of them told us we had the best ceremony they had ever attended and it was all because of Rabbi Barry. He explained all of the Jewish traditions in a very simple but meaningful way. He brought a great sense of humor to our ceremony and our guests absolutely loved him. We had so many people come up to us throughout the night telling us that our Rabbi was the best officiant they had ever seen and they could not stop talking about him. I also used Rabbi Barry for our Ketubah which is a masterpiece. I highly recommend Rabbi Barry- you won't be disappointed!
I don't think there's enough words to properly describe the beautiful service he provided for my husband and me. I distinctly remember researching Rabbis about a year ago, and not sure what exactly I was looking for; I'm Catholic and my husband is Jewish, and although we knew we'd have a Jewish service we wanted someone who understood the importance of conducting an interfaith ceremony and someone who respected our vision, culture and traditions. By the grace of God I found Rabbi Barry, and from our first meeting with him over the phone we knew he'd be our Rabbi; visiting with him in his home and hearing his stories and how he spoke so eloquently of love and marriage as an echad touched us so deeply. We kept in touch with Rabbi Barry over the course of a year, telling him stories and giving tidbits of information about ourselves and our relationship along the way. When the big day finally came, it truly felt like having an old friend marry us, like he had known us for eons. When Rabbi Barry speaks you can feel that he is truly blessing your marriage, and his words are poetic and precise at the same time. For my family, many of whom had never been to a Jewish wedding, they found Rabbi Barry's words comforting and recognizable and loved the way he was able to explain the tradition and importance of everything in a Jewish wedding, from the chuppah that symbolized our new home, to being wrapped in my husband's grandfather's tallit. I realize as I'm writing this, I've smiled the entire time because that's how special Rabbi Barry was to us on our wedding day and how special he'll always be to my husband and I. I couldn't have imagined our wedding officiated by anyone else; God has truly blessed Rabbi Barry with a gift of oration, an enlightened understanding of love, and a kind heart, and if you're lucky enough to have Rabbi Barry share his gifts with you, you and your marriage will truly be a blessed one.
Rabbi Barry was an amazing officiant for my husband and I at our wedding. I am Catholic, and he is Jewish. We had Father Brian and Rabbi Barry as co-officiants at our special day, and I am so so so glad we did! From the moment I spoke to Rabbi Barry on the phone, I got the "warm fuzzies" and I knew that he would fit right in at our wedding. His warm heart and light spirit brought me to tears, and had me cracking up laughing at the same time. The guests at our wedding (Muslim, Catholic, Jewish...) all said they wanted to have a Rabbi like Rabbi Barry do their weddings, even if they weren't Jewish! I would highly recommend him to any couple who is looking for a fun Rabbi who is also deeply rooted in the word of God and tradition...not just a comedian like many officiants nowadays. Give him a call :) You won't be disappointed!
Rabbi Barry was not only easy going and professional but gave our wedding such a personal feel and uniqueness.
Rabbi was great :), Rabbi was on time and brought everything as expected.
Rabbi Barry was wonderful! He was incredibly responsive and helpful leading up to the wedding, and we couldn't have asked for a lovelier ceremony. It was heartfelt, funny, and sweet in all the right ways. Thanks!!
Rabbi Barry Tuchman was amazing!!! I am Jewish and my husband is Christian and he did a wonderful job at making our ceremony a beautiful ceremony. Our guests raved about how amazing he was and even our Christian guests were raving about him all night! He had a great sense of humor and made our guests laugh. My husband and I were particular with a couple of things and he really worked with us throughout the whole process and was fabulous to work with. We are so lucky to have him! We highly recommend him!
We loved the ceremony, the Rabbi was very touching and Spiritual. It was exactly what we wanted and more.
We are blessed to have had him as our Rabbi.
Rabbi Barry is magnificent. From beginning to end he was always helpful and customized our interfaith Jewish Christian ceremony. The ceremony itself was unique and special. We were so blessed to have him as our officiant.
Rabbi Barry made our wedding unforgettable! My husband and I are beyond grateful to have such a wonderful Rabbi who made our day extremely special. We highly recommend Rabbi Barry. You will be extremely happy we can definitely promise you that. Rabbi Barry has an incredible sense of humor and my husband and I have gotten such positive feedback from our ceremony.
When planning our wedding, we were looking for a Rabbi that would be flexible, spiritual, and personable. His friendship, his moral guidance and his professionalism (not to mention sense of humor) made the Ketubah & Wedding unique, full of interconnectedness and joy. Everyone on both sides of the family loved him. I highly recommend him to anyone getting married and want a joyful, spiritual and jewish wedding. Since our wedding my wife and I not only refer to him as our Rabbi that married us, but also our friend.
Rabbi Barry did an amazing job at our wedding. Everyone loved him! We met with him for about 2 hours. He went over every detail of our ceremony. He was very professional. We felt very comfortable prior to and during the ceremony (besides the butterflies in my stomach) because we knew what to expect. We also ordered our custom Ketubah through Rabbi Barry. After a few draft, we got what we wanted and it is beautiful! We highly recommend Rabbi Barry!
Of all the work that went into the wedding, the most common comments I got was "Your ceremony was amazing" and "That Rabbi was great". Rabbi Barry Tuchman went above and beyond to make our ceremony spiritual and unique. He worked with our timeline and together we created our ceremony that would be perfect for us. We walked into our wedding confidently knowing exactly what was going to be happening the entire time. [Which was great for the nervous groom]. I dont think the wedding could have gone better than it did and that is thanks to Rabbi Barry Tuchman.
I am so happy that I found Rabbi Barry Tuchman because it made our wedding perfect.
Rabbi Barry is nothing short of AMAZING! He is an absolute diamond in the rough. This man will create ANY ceremony of your dreams. He can make it totally religious or not at all. He is incredibly talented in engaging your audience the ENTIRE ceremony. I can't tell you how many of our guests complimented him. He was incredibly patient with us and custom made our Ketubah (Jewish marriage contract). He spent hours of his time with us and never once rushed us. He was super responsive and made time for us any time we needed. He's funny, he's warm and a truly beautiful soul. We cannot say enough about him but just go MEET him and you'll understand. We are HONORED that he married us and I highly recommend him to all folks out there and referred all of my close friends and family as well. Thank you Rabbi Barry!!
Rabbi Barry helped to create such a beautiful ceremony for us, and made our day so incredibly special. He also created a stunning Ketubah that we will cherish forever!
We are so very grateful to have found Rabbi Barry!!
Rabbi Barry was a delight to work with. From our very first meeting, he was very calming and confident for the two of us. We had an interfaith marriage, and Rabbi Barry was able to recommend Father Mike to us, and the two of them put on an amazing ceremony. The families and friends loved it and it was a 40 minute ceremony that felt more like 20 minutes! Thank you so much for being a part of our very special day!
One last note, Rabbi Barry also helped us create our own ketubah and the results were beautiful!
