He also performs vow renewals and will participate in rehearsals if requested. Couples can feel confident that their beautiful, personalized ceremony will reflect the most important thing: their love for each other.

Perfect choice for interfaith wedding
Rabbi Olshansky, from our first introduction via Skype (we live in Texas but our ceremony was in Florida) to our beautiful ceremony by the ocean, was a true gem. We were so fortunate to have found him. At first we thought we might have both a Rabbi as well as a Minister but we both felt so comfortable with Rabbi Olshansky and didn't think we needed anyone else to officiate at our wedding. He is a very warm, witty, kind person and we both feel fortunate to have met him.Sent on 01/01/2019

Rabbi Olshansky did an excellent job
Rabbi Olshansky married my wife and I in Orlando in April. He did an excellent job. Throughout the prior 12 months before we got married, Rabbi Olshansky made a number of trips to Orlando to meet with us and get to know us. I really appreciated this. My wife and I are also both Jewish and wanted a slightly more traditional ceremony. Rabbi Olshansky was very knowledgeable about the prayers and traditions required of such a ceremony. He spoke very clear at the ceremony and flawlessly chanted the Hebrew prayers. Finally, he is very personable and legitimately cares to get to know you. I would high recommend Rabbi Olshansky especially to anyone who is looking to get married in the Central Florida area.Sent on 05/19/2019

We loved working with Rabbi O! He really took the time to get to know us over our skype calls to ensure that his remarks about us would be personal to our relationship. He was flexible on what we wanted to include and what we didn’t. And was extremely responsive on answering emails with questions as well as proof reading our ketubah and programs. We highly recommend him for Jewish or interfaith couples.Sent on 12/13/2017
