About Interfaith Cantor Marc Bachrach

Cantor Marc Bachrach is an interfaith cantor in Southern California. Couples hire Cantor Marc to brighten their wedding ceremonies with his unique blend of warmth, spiritual "gravitas", and light-hearted humor. Rich, bass-baritone singing and chanting, accompanied by guitar and mandolin, are unique additions many couples choose Cantor Marc to provide, especially during the processional. "Every couple, every family and group of friends is unique." Cantor Marc loves connecting with them and crafting a joyous celebration of marriage -- an intimate sacred space filled with love, gratitude, and heartfelt emotions.

Services Offered

Cantor Marc makes sure everyone understands all the ritual elements and language that he's helped the couple pick for their nuptials. Each person there is made to feel welcome and included -- in some ceremonies, they join Cantor Marc by singing simple phrases. Some wedding parties even join him during the closing benediction, raising their hands together in the ancient Rabbinical Blessing, now universally known as The Vulcan Salute- "Live Long and Prosper!"

For 40 years, Cantor Marc has officiated in Southern California synagogues and at private ceremonies from Kauai to New York. He has served as the spiritual leader of Makom Ohr Shalom, an Encino synagogue.

Cantor Marc has co-officiated interfaith ceremonies with priests, ministers, Buddhist monks, and kahuna shamans!

His 8 years as the host and producer of his own Los Angeles afternoon radio talk shows, and his ongoing voice-over work in recording studios are the reason he smiles appreciatively when wedding guests thank him after the ceremony, exclaiming "You Should Be on the RADIO with that Voice!"

Cantor Marc's secular performing careers as a Comedy Hypnotist and a Musical Entertainer in venues all over the world, along with his private practice in hypnotherapy, have more than prepared him to deal calmly and creatively with any "surprise" at a wedding ... from the smallest glitch or gust of wind, to (G-d Forbid!) life-threatening emergencies.

    Have It Your Way!

    Oy. This is the word when you think of when you have a wedding in 2020. Not with Cantor Marc! JOY is the word you think of if you have ever had the pleasure of working with him.

    My husband and I wanted a Jewish ceremony that incorporated the important traditions but also allowed space for our love and personalities to shine through. "Have It Your Way" is the theme of Marc's approach and it could not have worked out better. Marc is incredibly knowledgeable and really took the time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple which really came through in our ceremony. It felt like he had known us for years, even though we had only met a month prior.

    Keeping guests entertained during a wedding ceremony is tough, and it's even tougher when 90% of those guests are virtual. Marc kept everyone laughing and engaged the whole time, making our ceremony that much more fun and memorable. We continue to receive rave reviews even to this day from friends and family members who felt the magic of our unique experience.

    If you are looking for someone who will take the time to get to know you and help you curate a unique, personalized ceremony, look no further. Marc is a gem of a human and is an absolute pleasure to work with.

    Interfaith Cantor Marc Bachrach's reply:

    What pure joy it was working with you and Ari!
    and with your friend Steve, mentoring and collaborating with him on his first outing as a co-officiant!
    Andy and I were so moved by your vows and all the thought and care that went into every minute of your wedding day.... from the internationally Zoomed Ketubah Signing Ceremony to the heartfelt thanks you each gave friends and family during the cocktail hour.
    "Oy to JOY" certainly summed up the Journey to Your Chuppah this year!
    Thank you for such kind words, Olivia.
    You and Ari are gems yourselves!

    Cantor Marc was just who we wanted!

    Cantor Marc was just who we wanted! He was flexible, knowledgeable, professional with a great sense of humor, ability to go with the flow, work with us to create our own unique couple's wedding. We were inspired and coached to add our own touches like musical lyrics for Cantor Marc to sing/chant with guitar, alternating speaking our vows to each other, toasting with sake wine, having a Covid Mask Blessing and more tailored rituals. We did a Bu-Jew (Buddhist/Jewish) wedding with Prayer Flags and eclectic touches encouraged by and coordinated with the Cantor. In short, he has experience, charm, spirit and lot's of questions for you to give him the ability to style your wedding to add that personal touch which memorializes the day! We had a very blessed marriage union under our Chuppah with close family and we most appreciatively thank Cantor Marc for sharing his assistance, guidance and ability to share our day with our family in a personal way.
