We love Rabbi Linda!
We loved working with Rabbi Linda to create a wedding ceremony that was unique for us. We both wanted a somewhat traditional Jewish wedding, but light on the religious aspects. Rabbi Linda understood our concerns and worked with us to put together a ceremony that felt right for us while respecting the important traditions. We didn't have a prior relationship with her, so she made a point of meeting with us multiple times (including by Facetime to work around our schedule and the distance between us), in order to get to know us better. As a result, the ceremony included a wonderful section in which Rabbi Linda told our story that helped make the ceremony feel very personal. Multiple guests have made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed the ceremony, thanks in large part to Rabbi Linda.Sent on 05/06/2019

We absolutely LOVE Rabbi Linda! She partnered with our congregation’s rabbi to create the most wonderful ceremony for us that integrated Jewish tradition and was also totally accessible for our non-Jewish guests with lots of meaningful and personal touches. Not only did we love it, our guests all raved about it the entire night! Some even said it was the best ceremony they’d ever seen. The entire process was great - Linda is accommodating, extremely kind, caring, professional, and she also has a great sense of humor :). It was everything we could have hoped for and more!Sent on 09/10/2019
Rabbi Linda Portnoy Goldberg's reply:Kathy, how lovely to hear that you and your guests found the ceremony to be so enjoyable. It was a delight working with you and Aaron, and I’m thrilled that you loved the results.
