Each ceremony was unique, just as each couple is unique. If you are an interfaith couple, he will acknowledge and honor family traditions of non-Jewish partners as much as possible. Rabbi Olshansky believes in finding a balance between what is meaningful to couples and their families with Jewish tradition. He usually meets with couples 3 times, in person or by Zoom, in order to be able to speak about them personally and to customize the ceremony.

Simply The Best!

From the moment we met Rabbi Olshansky, we felt so confident and happy with our decision to work with him. My now husband’s heritage comes from patrilineal descent, therefore making it difficult for us to find a Rabbi that would marry us. However, from the moment we met him Rabbi Olshasnky made us realize that what mattered most was that we loved each other and that he allowed us the opportunity to share our heritage and religion in a way that worked best for us. I’ve been to many weddings in my time and never once have I heard the bride or groom get complemented on their officiant. That was much different with ours. We had so many people come up to us and say how much they loved hearing from him, appreciated the translations, and they really raved about his reading of our personal vows. They attributed our beautiful and memorable ceremony to him and for that I will be forever grateful. Thank you Rabbi Olshanksy for being such a warm light guiding us through our new journey into marriage – we appreciate you so much!

Excellent experience

We were referred to Rabbi Olshansky through an organization we contacted and it was a wonderful experience. From the moment he contacted us, the process was very smooth. We met 3 times prior to our wedding and he took the time to really get to know us, and provide valuable, thoughtful, and helpful information. He responded quickly to all of our questions. We are an interfaith couple and he did a fantastic job of incorporating the 2 religions into the service and was very open to the fact that my husband is not Jewish. The ceremony was beautiful and many of our guests commented on how perfect it was. He was a joy to work with.
