    Couldn't Imagine Anyone Else

    Rabbi Bass was such a wonderful part of our wedding; we couldn’t imagine having the ceremony without her. From the beginning, Lia was so helpful with counseling and with editing and improving the text of our custom-written ketubah. Rabbi Bass helped tailor our ceremony to accommodate our special requests. She even offered to help make our chuppah! When the day came, Lia was so helpful at managing our ketubah signing. Then, during the ceremony, Rabbi Bass was beautiful, personal, and heartfelt in her remarks. So thankful that she was a part of our wedding.

    Thoughtful, Professional, Compassionate Rabbi. A personalized wedding experience.

    Rabbi Bass married my husband and I in 2013. We had a wonderful experience with her! She was professional, compassionate, and thorough, and she made our wedding BEAUTIFUL!

    We knew Rabbi Bass from a Synagogue where we had been a few times. We connected with her via email weeks before our wedding and arranged to meet in person for some planning. During our planning meeting, she spent time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple. She offered useful wisdom about marriage/relationships and familiarized us with Jewish customs surrounding weddings and the meaning behind them. We talked through what was relevant/important to my husband and I, and together we planned our ceremony to fit our preferences and include important traditions. Additionally, after getting to know us, Rabbi Bass made us a GORGEOUS Chuppah for our ceremony.

    Our wedding day was beautiful - just as we had planned. Rabbi Bass married us in a most meaningful way, leading us though the rituals and traditions we had discussed under the Chuppah she had made. MAGICAL! A perfect day with our friends and family as witnesses to a monumental life cycle event personalized for my husband and me.

    I would recommend Rabbi Bass to anyone who is looking for a compassionate, thorough, smart, and thoughtful leader who will take the time to get to know the couple and infuse your special day with meaning specific to you.
