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.

    Simply the best!

    My husband and I are both Jewish but not religious. Judaism is an important part of our culture so we wanted someone who understood that but wasn't push or judgy when it came down to what we envisioned for our ceremony. Rabbi Marc is truly a breath of fresh air and made the entire experience a pleasure. Rabbi Marc was not only our rabbi, but also became a dear friend. We've had Rabbi Marc over our house for dinner, have met his beautiful wife and have planned several outings with him since our wedding. I know that this is a relationship that will continue for the rest of our lives and I am truly so grateful for finding someone like him. As far as the wedding, we got SO many compliments on his service. We had a lot of non-jewish guests who said they really enjoyed it and were so surprised to see how fun and festive Jewish weddings are. Rabbi Marc engaged with our crowd and made sure everyone knew what was happening, wasn't bored and really enjoyed themselves during the ceremony. Rabbi Marc even stayed for our reception and partied with our guests! Over all, I couldn't have asked for a better Rabbi to officiate our wedding. Thank you so much, we are forever grateful!

    Excellent/The Absolute Best

    My fiancée and I found Cantor Marc on wedding wire and I called him on the phone and it was clear from our first interaction with him that he truly cares about people. We met with him in person for lunch and after a hectic week of wedding planning he helped us focus on what is truly important (our love for one another) and the importance of the day. He put us at ease and he really knows how to use our differing faith backgrounds as a source of unity. The absolute best. If you are looking for a Jewish, interfaith or non-denominational officiant look no further. We are very much looking forward to him performing our ceremony this coming May. Thank you so very much Cantor Marc. We are truly blessed to have found you!
