  • Our daughter was married by Cantor Ginzburg this past weekend. It was the most moving, beautiful, meaningful, and spiritual ceremony we have ever witnessed. But don't base it on us; we're biased. Countless guests, including people from from the other side of the wedding came up to us - and are still reaching out to us - to tell us just that. Absolutely extraordinary and entirely planned by our children and Shira.

  • We cannot say enough good things about Shira! Our Rabbi was unable to officiate our wedding unfortunately, but referred us to Shira. Admittedly, we were a bit nervous at first around the idea of having someone we didn't know officiate our wedding...you know, the most important day of our lives so far. But as soon as we walked into East End to meet with Shira, all our worries melted away. Shira is warm, kind and approachable. She set a number of meetings with us, taking the time to get to know us and to make sure we were spiritually, emotionally, and on a practical level, prepared to enter this new chapter in our lives as husband and wife. She doesn't just check the boxes of things she needs to do, she is fully invested in each couple she works with. She also made sure that our ceremony was totally reflective of us, and gave us great advice that helped us to make sure we were as present as possible at our wedding, enjoying each other, and not getting lost in the logistics and hosting...

  • Shira was phenomenal from beginning to end. She is warm, kind, and a pleasure to work with. She created such a warm and personalized ceremony and we could not be more grateful. The ceremony was our favorite part of the entire night. Shira is also incredibly organized and responsive and takes all of the stress out of the wedding planning process. My husband and I had such a great time getting to know her and couldn't be happier with our decision to have her marry us.

  • Shira was accommodating to everything that was needed with a destination wedding. She dealt with the difficult process of becoming ordained in Bermuda and managing her own travel arrangements. I would recommend using Shira to anyone who would enjoy a kind, thoughtful and engaging ceremony.

  • Cantor Ginsburg didn't just provide us with an utterly beautiful ceremony grounded in our unique bond. The three pre-wedding counseling sessions we had with her deepened our own spiritual preparations for marriage. We were looking for a unique officiant--one who was meticulous in her Jewish observance and able to help us have a traditional Jewish ceremony, despite the fact that only one of the people marrying is Jewish. Shira delivered a beautiful ceremony while carefully explaining the deeper meaning behind the rituals and prayers so that all of our attendees felt comfortable, welcomed, and truly aware of the beauty of the traditions. She's also flat-out delightful and sweet to talk to. Cantor Ginsburg couldn't have been a better choice.

  • Shira was absolutely FANTASTIC! We could not have been happier with her officiating our wedding last weekend. Her beautiful spoken word and incredible singing voice brought our ceremony to new heights. We are so thankful to have her and would highly highly recommend her to anyone. Love, Amanda & Amanda

  • Cantor Shira was absolutely wonderful. We met with her in the months leading up to our wedding. We found her easy to talk to and engage with, and guidance during this period was enlightening as well as practical. The [very positive] feedback we received on our wedding ceremony had everything to do with Cantor Shira’s amazing voice. We cannot day enough about how lucky we feel to have had her participate in our wedding preparation and ceremony.

  • Cantor Shira is magical! Not only was she amazing to work with but so flexible in quickly helping us prepare for the big day. Her voice is a thing of beauty, but her words are works of art. Everyone commented on how memorable and special the ceremony was. Thank you Shira for everything!

  • Shira was the key to the whole day and having her officiate made it all so incredibly special. Her council on both a spiritual and practical level were invaluable. We felt her sincerity and warmth from the moment we first spoke and our guests felt the same on our Big Day. My now husband is Jewish and I am not. We wanted a ceremony that centered around Jewish traditions and also represented us as as a couple. We wanted it to feel light/celebratory, somewhat traditional and personal. Finding someone to officiate was difficult - the rentaI rabbis we spoke to followed a script for every wedding, nondenominational officiants didn't honor his family's traditions enough and others we reached out to wouldn't marry us without me beginning the conversion process. We were extremely disheartened .... until Cantor Shira! Before we met Shira, The Wedding seemed like an expensive hassle and not like something we "needed" ten plus years into a relationship. Our first call with Cantor Shira c... Read more

  • I couldn't imagine our wedding without Cantor Shira. When we first met her, my wife and I instantly felt comfortable and we knew from the moment we left that she was the perfect person to share in our wedding. She walked us through all of the traditional elements of the ceremony and worked with us to create the ceremony that was perfect for us. Both of our families couldn't stop talking about how wonderful her words were. I can't recommend her enough!

  • Shira was the perfect officiant for our wedding. She helped us prepare beforehand and walked us through each step. She helped us resolve challenges in the planning process and was truly a source of calm throughout. She was very flexible and she was even willing to do our ceremony on a Saturday. She got to know us before hand and it felt as if we had a friend officiating our ceremony. After our ceremony, we had so many people mention how great she was and how well she explained each element of our wedding. Do yourself a favor and have Shira officiate your wedding you won't regret it!

  • Shira did an incredible job - our guests were extremely impressed and gave us so many compliments on our ceremony! One guest said "wow I felt like I was at a Broadway show" We really enjoyed Shira's personal touch at Ketubah signing and ceremony, and her voice is so beautiful. My dad asked where we found her, then commented we "hit the jackpot"!

  • Shira created the most incredible ceremony for our wedding in Lake George! We felt so honored to have her as she had a connection to each of us and our families, but we can imagine that even if she didn't personally know the couple, she would create a ceremony that was just as special. We had multiple people tell us it was the most beautiful and meaningful ceremony they had ever attended. For anyone who hasn't heard, Shira has an incredible voice and can impress with both her song and voice. She also spent time with us prior to the event giving us guidance on our marriage and walking through exactly how the big day would happen. I would recommend Shira over and over again to anyone who wants an amazing ceremony!

  • Shira is a beautiful human being with a soul that shines so bright, that it is a privilege to have her being the officiant to your wedding ceremony! Her voice is like crystal and when she sings the blessings and prayers that come with the Jewish wedding, you cannot help but feel that the entire universe is celebrating with you. We wanted something very small and intimate, simple but meaningful. Shira guided us through our process and it was seamless. Our ceremony was perfect and it was everything that we had expected. Shira is fantastic, respectful, so knowledgeable, and loving! She really cares. I am sure that she will bring the magic in your day too!
