    One of a kind Rabbi

    My husband and I highly recommend Rabbi Steve. He is very kind, caring, funny and happy person. Our ceremony was beautiful and perfect. Everything went smooth and we couldn't be more happy!

    A True Blessing!

    Rabbi Steve was an absolute lifesaver. We'd originally asked my uncle to officiate but due to unforeseen circumstances outside of his control, he ended up having to back out on his initial agreement and we were left scrambling to find an officiant with only a few short months left before the wedding. My (now) husband is Jewish and we loved the idea of honoring that tradition on our wedding day. The date we chose for our wedding happened to be Rosh Hashanah which, while beautifully symbolic, made finding a rabbi willing & available to officiate that day particularly challenging. Rabbi Steve was so warm, understanding & supportive, from the moment I first reached out to him with our plight, to the day he invited us to meet with him in his home & treated us to delicious homemade goodies from his wife, to the ceremony itself. We wanted someone who could strike that delicate balance between the serious & sacred and the playful & joyful, and he did that to a tee. More than one of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they'd been to. We could not recommend Rabbi Steve more highly and are so grateful he was willing and able to officiate for us!

    The best Rabbi we could have asked for

    Rabbi Steve was awesome to work with. He took the time to explain everything. He was flexible on details we wanted to include or not include. Rabbi Steve was incredible and I would recommend him to anyone.
