About Rabbi Gary Katz

It's all about the relationship.

Rabbi Gary Katz is a wedding officiant serving the New York Tri-State area. Katz is not the kind of rabbi who will meet with you once and be out of your life after the wedding. If you're looking for a real relationship with your wedding officiant, one who will guide and support you before and after the wedding, Rabbi Katz is who you want. He will teach the meaning of the different Jewish wedding traditions, include traditions of your own or your family’s, and help you create a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple.

Experience
Rabbi Katz has served the Jewish clergy for over 25 years. During this time he served as the rabbi for the Junior Year Abroad Program at Hebrew University. He was also the Student Activities coordinator at both the Ramaz School and the Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan, and Director of the Kislak Adult Center.

Services Offered
Rabbi Katz offers traditional and contemporary Jewish wedding ceremonies, along with pre-wedding spiritual counseling. As part of Rabbi Katz’s counseling services, you will meet with him six times before your wedding, including three Shabbat dinners with other engaged couples. These meetings will help you define your ceremony and share ideas with other couples. Rabbi Katz also schedules “check-ups” with couples six months and a year after their marriage to provide guidance or just to celebrate your first year of marriage. You will also have the option to meet with the Rabbi twice a year for the first three years of your marriage for counseling. Rabbi Katz invests his time with couples to ensure not only their ceremony, but their marriage is filled with love, happiness, and divine commitment.

The first time I listened to Rabbi Katz at a holiday service, I knew he would be the perfect Rabbi to bat mitzvah my daughter. He is young, relatable and has an amazing way of connecting with the kids he works with. He has a way of capturing the adults attention by making the service easy to understand and interesting. My daughter was very comfortable working with and really enjoyed the time she spent practicing with Rabbi Katz. He didn’t just come and conduct her service, He took a genuine interest in getting to know my daughter, her interests, hobbies, personality. I could not have been happier! I can’t recommend him highly enough!!!!!
