Testimonials

“Rabbi Math had officiated at my baby naming, and 30 years later we re-connected and he officiated at our wedding. Both Jon and and I felt very comfortable with Rabbi Math – he was personable, warm and flexible. He really took time to meet with us, to counsel us during this exiting period in our lives, and to work with us on tailoring the ceremony. We received so many compliments on our wedding ceremony – on how lovely it was, how meaningful it was and how Rabbi Math made it accessible to all of our guests – including those who were unfamiliar with Jewish traditions. We couldn’t have been happier with how it turned out – Rabbi Math was the perfect officiant and we look forward to sharing many other milestones with him.”

 “Now that we’re back from our honeymoon, we wanted to thank you so much for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Everyone was raving at how moving the ceremony was – from guests that are members of Conservative temples to those who had never seen a Jewish wedding before.

We are so thankful for all you did guiding us through the process. Thank you for being so flexible and understanding of our interfaith needs. Our ketubah is beautiful, and we just ordered a frame to put it up on our wall.

Your personalized touches were greatly appreciated, and you made everyone, especially us, feel warm and welcome. Everyone especially loved your added quotes, and the ending when you covered us with your tallis.

Our parents also wanted to pass along their gratitude. We look forward to working with you more in our lives in the future, and will definitely refer you to our friends and family.”

“Rabbi Math was my rabbi growing up, so we were thrilled that he was available to officiate our October 2011 wedding. He prepared us well, taking time to meet with us multiple times and explain each and every tradition and allowing us to choose the ones we wanted to feature. The ceremony was meaningful, modern and wonderful, and all of our guests keep telling us it was the most interesting and enjoyable wedding they’ve ever been to and we feel the same way.”

“Absolutely, the best ceremony ever!”

“Rabbi Math took the time to meet with my husband and myself more than once to really understand what we wanted, resulting in a service that was ‘very us’ – we could not have asked for anything more! Five years later, family and friends still comment on what an amazing job he did.  Rabbi Math also officiated at the naming ceremony of our son, again, taking the time to really listen, he led a ceremony that intertwined family traditions in a way that was beautiful and very fitting… we are thrilled to have him officiate at the naming of our newborn in just a few weeks!”

— Andrea C., New York City

“Rabbi Math put our minds at ease and demystified the whole wedding process for us.  We felt comfortable from the beginning to the end as he took the time to explain everything.  Most importantly, he offered us meaningful choices so that our ceremony was customized to some degree, reflecting our personal and religious preferences.”

–Neal H. and Rachel L., New York City

“Rabbi Math was a wonderful wedding officiant.  The ceremony he arranged for us was quite personal and provided the perfect mix of levity, warmth, and formality.  In meeting with him prior to our wedding, he was so helpful in suggesting content to include in the ceremony, based on our personalities, as well as the type of wedding we wanted.”

–Julie C., Connecticut

 

“Rabbi Math officiated my parents’ wedding, and it was clear from our first meeting with him why he was right for us too. Rabbi Math taught us about Jewish wedding customs while allowing us to strike our own balance of tradition, religion and spirituality. His warmth and sense of humor put us at ease and made the ceremony accessible to our guests, many of whom had never attended a Jewish wedding before. I hope one day Rabbi Math will get to meet our children, and maybe marry them too!”
–Jamie S., New York City

 

“Rabbi Math has been our family Rabbi for many years and many events. He has officiated my brother’s bar mitzvah, my mother’s 2nd wedding ceremony and my own wedding ceremony. He has always been and continues to be an vital part of our family. My husband and I are now expecting our first child and Rabbi Math has been a wonderful support to help guide us through the most life changing events and decisions. Thank you Dennis for all of your caring and thoughtful advice.”

“Hi Rabbi Math, Just wanted to thank you again for the beautiful ceremony! We
have been receiving so many compliments, and can’t thank you enough! It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you over these past few months, and we can’t wait to continue our relationship in this new chapter of our lives.”

“We could not recommend Rabbi Math any more highly to anyone seeking to have a Jewish wedding. Rabbi Math counseled us before the wedding and was sure to take into consideration our feelings about various aspects of the ceremony in his planning. The final result surpassed our already high expectations. We had a beautiful ceremony that was within the Jewish tradition, but not cookie-cutter and felt suited to us.  We will forever be grateful to Rabbi Math for the critical role he played in such an important moment of our lives. “
–Susan and Eric, New York City
