    Highly recommend!

    Rabbi Rayzel was absolutely amazing!! I grew up Jewish but my husband did not. I loved that Rabbi was more than willing to officiate our interfaith ceremony with many Jewish customs. She explained everything to us prior to the wedding and we met with her many times so that both my husband and I felt like we had known her for a while! She was prompt on the day of, led the most beautiful ketubah ceremony that my parents and in-laws loved, and then orchestrated an absolutely beautiful ceremony. The ceremony was the perfect length, included so many personalized moments for us as a couple and the guests of the wedding told us they enjoyed it as well. We couldn’t be happier to have gone with Rabbi and will definitely use her for baby namings and all events in the future!

    Rabbi Rayzel Raphael's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words! It was great day! Your family is so much fun, and you two are meant for each other. I loved learning about both of you. Stay in touch and thanks for the pictures !

    The most amazing rabbi

    Rabbi Rayzel was incredible, she was so helpful, fun to work with, calming and helped my non-Jewish husband and his family embrace Jewish traditions. So many people told us how much they loved our ceremony and they would use Rabbi Rayzel or they wanted to convert to Judaism to have ceremonies with her. We made the best choice to work with her and she made the ceremony so special for us.

    Rabbi Rayzel Raphael's reply:

    Thank you for this Madison! It was my first Jewish - Moravian ceremony and was so beautiful! I love learning from my couples. Please stay in touch and send pictures!
    Blessings life and love,

    Rabbi Rayzel

    Ps. Have fun in the igloo:)
