    Thoughtful and amazing!

    Rabbi Nalven was incredible! She took the time to get to know us before our wedding, and gave us many options for how we wanted our ceremony to go. She was extremely responsive and made our day so very special! We highly recommend her for any version of a Jewish ceremony that you wish to have!

    I would highly recommend Rabbi Gail Nalven! Leading up to the wedding, she was responsive and professional-- she provided us with materials that guided us through her typical Jewish ceremony, but scheduled several meetings so we could adjust and personalize. She explained traditions to us that we weren't aware of, so we could decide if we wanted to incorporate them or not. On the day of the wedding, she arrived early, so she could scope things out and make sure everything went according to plan. She put us at ease because it was clear she had everything very organized. Then the ceremony was perfect. It was just the right length (approximately 20 minutes); it incorporated the Sheva Brachot (the Seven Blessings) with very nice English "interpretations" that we got to pick and that seven friend/family members read to us; it included a blessing by our mothers (where our mothers wrapped us in my husband's bar-mitzvah tallis-- see photo); and I would be remiss if I didn't mention that it included beautiful singing by Rabbi Patricia Rudden (see photo). From the minute we asked Gail (and Patricia) to officiate our wedding, to the very end of the ceremony, she was responsive, flexible, thoughtful, sweet, and all-around a wonderful addition to our wedding day.
