The perfect mix of our values and beliefs!
We loved having Rabbi Broden as the officiant for our wedding! My family is Jewish, and some are quite religious, while my husband and his family are not. Rabbi Broden was able to incorporate my Jewish traditions in a way that explained them to the guests, and still included my husband's traditions and values. We felt it was the perfect mix of our two beliefs! He was also incredibly responsive, and tailored the wedding to what we wanted. It was a gorgeous ceremony!Sent on 09/26/2019

Great Rabbi for Our Interfaith Marriage
Rabbi Broden was the perfect officiant for our interfaith marriage! I'm Catholic and my now husband is Jewish so we wanted to honor both of our families by having a Rabbi and a Priest for the ceremony. Rabbi Broden was very responsive to my emails, great to work with, and kindly helped me create a beautiful ceremony script. Our guests really enjoyed hearing Rabbi Broden sing during our ceremony. We're so lucky he was available to co-officiate our wedding. My husband and I highly recommend working with Rabbi Broden! Our ceremony was perfect - Thanks for everything :)Sent on 07/10/2019
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:Bonnie, it was an honor to be with you two. Thank you for including me and for the kind words. Ron

Outdoor Interfaith Wedding
Rabbi Broden was amazing. He met with us before our wedding and sent us an outline of his ceremony so we could personalize it. We had a bi-cultural interfaith wedding, so the ability to make sure that everyone would enjoy the ceremony was really important to us. On top of that, we really wanted to have a pretty short ceremony. Rabbi Broden did all of that, and we had the absolute perfect ceremony - one that will always warm our hearts when we think about it.Sent on 08/02/2019

Laura · Married on 09/01/2018
Rabbi Broden was our officiant for our wedding this September. We are an interfaith couple and we had a Jewish ceremony. From our first meeting via Skype, Rabbi Broden was very personable and helpful. We spent a majority of this meeting talking about who we were individually and as a couple. We could tell that he was actually interested in us as people and he wanted to get to know us better. We liked his flexibility and his friendliness - we were very comfortable speaking with him. Over the next few months, Rabbi Broden was always very prompt in answering emails whenever we had a question or concern. On the wedding day, he delivered a wonderful and moving ceremony. Rabbi Broden is also an excellent cantor. We were very happy that we chose him for our wedding!Sent on 09/25/2018
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:Thank you Laura for such lovely words. I'm so pleased you included me.
Allison · Married on 07/07/2018
My husband and I felt so lucky to have found Rabbi Ron for our July wedding. Rabbi Ron made our ceremony light yet touching as his words incorporated meaningful Jewish culture with today's modern traditions. He allowed us to choose the text that we would prefer, and sent us a copy of what would be said on our special day. Our guests raved about the wonderful ceremony we had thanks to Rabbi Ron!Sent on 09/06/2018
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:Hi Allison, I'm so glad I was able to help with the right wording for the two of you and that you were so pleased with the ceremony! Best, Ron

Jonathan · Married on 06/09/2018
Rabbi Broden did a great job preparing our son for his Bar Mitzvah. He also performed the ceremony and did a wonderful job. We were thrilled and so were our guests. The ceremony was the perfect length and the tone was exactly right. There were serious moments and just the right sprinkling of humorous interludes. It was a deeply meaningful and memorable experience.Sent on 09/21/2018
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:I am always pleased to be a part of all lifecycle events. Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, like weddings, are occasions that are never forgotten and I hope that your family will always have fond memories.

Rabbi Ron was such a wonderful officiant at our recent wedding. We had an interfaith ceremony with both the Rabbi and a Catholic Priest. Rabbi Ron worked with the Priest and us to make sure the ceremony was everything we wanted it to be. We couldn't be happier with how the day turned out. He was very easy to reach and answered our many questions during the planning process too. We would definitely recommend him!Sent on 06/20/2017

Rebecca · Married on 10/22/2016
Ron Broden was a great officiant at our wedding. We had a traditional Jewish ceremony, but wanted to start before sundown on Saturday, and Ron was very flexible about this and happy to oblige. We met once with him at his home, and he provided us with a ceremony script before hand that he allowed us to completely personalize and make our own. He added specific elements we wanted incorporated, and took out others we did not want. Ron was prompt and professional in signing our marriage license and our ketubah and performed a really lovely ceremony. He was warm and personable and helped make a wonderful day for us.Sent on 11/02/2016
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:Thank you Rebecca for the lovely words. Wishing you both a wonderful life together!

He was very flexible and accommodating. Especially that we had our wedding on the Shabbat.Sent on 10/25/2016
Jewish Ceremonies by Cantor Ronald Broden's reply:Aside from the holy days, weddings shouldn't be limited to Sundays and late at night on Saturdays so as not to take place on Shabbat as per Jewish law. Shabbat is the day of joy and what better way to celebrate that than with a wedding!
