Testimonials

'I don't know that I can accurately put into words how deeply appreciative and moved we are by the beautiful ceremony and marriage you have given us. The ceremony was everything we could have wanted and so much more. It was intimate, inclusive, deeply spiritual, and appropriately modern. It perfectly reflected Michael, myself, our story and our love. I am not exaggerating when I say that you were the highlight of the evening for us, our families and our guests. People would simply not stop talking about the amazing rabbi and the amazing ceremony.'
--Jane and Michael

'To say that Rabbi Renèe made our wedding special would be an understatement. Our guests could not stop raving about the ceremony. Her charm and wit, combined with her knowledge of tradition and flexible approach, made her a pleasure to work with. We are honored to have had her as our rabbi and now as a friend.'
--Arielle and Ben

'Words cannot express our gratitude. The ceremony was so beautiful. I just cannot believe our luck in finding you. The ceremony was tasteful, dignified and there was no doubt that you were really present, and that every word you said you meant. I also want to thank you for the second meeting we had. I learned a lot about Fernando and myself in this brief meeting. Again thank you so very much. I feel we had a perfect start to our lifelong partnership.'

'I am Ken's mother, and I want to thank you for meeting with Kelly and Ken to plan their wedding. You are doing important work, because your welcoming attitude is keeping the door open to a Jewish home. Kelly is open to having Jewish children who know and love their Christian roots and family traditions, and I was certain this frustrating experience of finding a Rabbi would change that. You have not only saved a wedding, but also the future family religious experience.'
--Suzie / Kelly and Ken

'We cannot thank you enough for the most amazing ceremony! It meant everything to us. Everyone said it was the most beautiful and emotional wedding ceremony they had ever attended. They also said how much they learned and were so interested in your explanations of the Jewish traditions. We really cannot explain to you how happy we were that day and your words moved us. You really got to know us and everyone there could tell.'
--Sara and Tommy

'If we had searched for years, we could never have hoped to find anyone more perfect than you. Literally everyone has raved about how much they loved the ceremony and we have you to thank for that. Most of all, the fact that you are a kind and radiant person was clear to everyone and your presence really made the wedding special. You will forever be in our hearts and we can't thank you enough for helping to make our wedding day an absolutely perfect one.'
--Dwayne and Andrea

Everyone enjoyed dancing with you too!'

'How can we thank you enough? The ceremony was everything we dreamed it would be. Thank you for spending an enormous amount of time getting to know us as individuals and as a couple. We never thought in our search for a Rabbi that we'd make this heartfelt connection. You made us laugh and cry, but most importantly you reminded us to be in the moment. We will forever remember your words, our vows, and the kindness and spirit you have shared. Thank you so very much. '
--Maria and Jason

'You filled our wedding with love and laughter. Throughout the reception, every guest told us just how wonderful and original our ceremony was, how they felt that you really got to know us and reflected our feelings in the ceremony -- they were 100% right. You did take the time to get to know us personally and we enjoyed our meetings getting to know you. Our ceremony was beautiful because of you and for that we will be forever grateful.'
--Allison and Warren

'I want to thank you for the extraordinary wedding ceremony you performed for Beth and Steve on Jun 5, 2010. It was truly very special. Your wit, warmth, and wisdom pervaded the air and we felt like you were a member of our family who had known us for years. Our guests continue to talk about the magnificent rabbi at Beth and Steve's wedding. '

'We've worked together in the past and I have to say you are by far my favorite officiant. That's saying a lot since I've been shooting weddings in NYC for 9 years. Your ceremonies are so warm and personal and FUNNY! A true pleasure to witness, you get me choked up every time ;). I just posted images from Elyse & Michael's wedding on my blog and gave you a mention. Here is the link: www.nycweddingphotographer.com/blog. I'll be sure to recommend you to all of my couples. '
