Rabbi Rayzel officiated our wedding and it was truly amazing. She left everyone feeling so touched and connected, it was truly beautiful. I am happy I found her! She understood that my fiancé and I wanted a Jewish ceremony; although we are not super religious. She worked with us in order to customize the ceremony how WE wanted and how we viewed ourselves through our religious beliefs. The Ketubah signing was one of the highlights of the entire wedding experience for myself, as well as a number of other guests (family/friends) who witnessed it as well. She brought us to happy tears and it was something I will never forget. I hope to remain in contact with her as we grow our family. :) thank you again Rabbi!Sent on 07/02/2019

So easy to work with!
We really enjoyed working with Rabbi Rayzel. We needed someone to officiate our interfaith, Saturday afternoon ceremony, and she was the perfect choice. She listened to what we wanted to be included, and helped tailor the ceremony to us. She was entertaining and kept our friends and family engaged, but wasn't over the top. Our guests are still talking about the singing during circling, and my favorite part was the ketubah signing ceremony, which made us feel surrounded by love. Highly recommend!!Sent on 07/11/2019
