I cannot say enough good things about Rabbi Tuchman. We are an interracial couple (me-Ashkenazi Jewish but not really religious, my wife Chinese/buddhist). He worked with us on our Ketubah which really captured the essence of our marriage. Likewise, I do not consider myself religious but felt it was important to have Jewish traditions on my wedding. He was really understanding of this and made me feel comfortable. Ultimately, the ceremony turned out wonderfully. I had numerous people come up to me telling me he was the greatest officiant they had seen at a wedding and I agree. Was really a pleasure to have him as a part of ceremony.Sent on 03/17/2020

Perfect for our day!!
Rabbi Barry was absolutely perfect for our wedding day - we did a chinese tea ceremony, followed by a catholic wedding ceremony, followed by the jewish ceremony. We wanted a contrast to the formal catholic ceremony, and that was exactly what we got. Our guests LOVED the ceremony, and we got so many comments about how special it was.Sent on 01/13/2020
Rabbi Barry also designed our Ketubah, which we adore, it is so nice having a ketubah that really reflects the two of us and our beliefs, instead of the standard, typical ones I've seen from relatives.

Great Ceremony and Beautiful Ketubah
Rabbi Barry was great for our “slightly” – Jewish wedding in October of 2019. The groom wanted to hit some notions of his Jewish faith (breaking of the glass, chuppah, and blessings). The bride wanted to honor LOVE and not make her Catholic family uncomfortable. Rabbi Barry achieved both. A quick 20-minute ceremony that had quirks to it was exactly what we wanted for our special day. Rabbi Barry was hilarious and made sure to honor both bride and grooms requests to make the ceremony their own. Additionally, we ordered our ketubah through Rabbi Barry and he did an awesome job at creating a marriage license that was customized to our love of cooking. We can’t wait to have it in our kitchen at our future home.Sent on 11/18/2019
What a great company! We highly recommend!
Doing several events a week, you kind of hear it all. We are, however, always taken by the services that Rabbi Tuchman delivers. Alway provocative, always warm and personal. We often feel that he is a member of the celebrants family.
I Love working with Rabbi Tuchman. Very caring and kind.
