  • what a hoot this guy is, but super professional. He stayed on top of us through the whole process, told us what we needed to accomplish and when right down to attaining the marriage license. He walked us through how to purchase a ketubah and what we should put on it. Day of he showed up early, set up the ceremony space, chased down the witnesses for marriage license signing, walked us through how to get our certified copies, ate some cocktail hour and left. The ceremony was hilarious and he made sure to print our self written vows in large print so we could read easily. Only downside was that he doesn’t conduct a rehearsal, preferring to guide you through the ceremony as its happening, but it worked out super well and I didn’t feel like a rehearsal was at all necessary. Friends were approaching me afterward for hid info for future celebrations! Highly recommend. 10/10 stars!

  • Rabbi Tobin was a huge help and relief during wedding planning. My husband and I met with Rabbi Tobin in person and a few times over the phone prior to our wedding day. He made us feel comfortable with his service, our venue and the plan on our actual wedding day. We never questioned his preparation, and he made it very clear that he's done this MANY times before. Most importantly he made a game day decision to sign our Ketubah during the ceremony, when pictures ran way longer than scheduled. His calm demeanor, made this the best part of the day. Everyone was fine with this decision and many of our guests commented on how sweet and personal it was to have us sign the ketubah as part of our ceremony. Rabbi Tobin is very conscious of the time, and this meant so much to us. The wedding ceremony is the most important part of the wedding day, and he made sure that this was the case. I highly recommend Rabbi Tobin as part of your wedding plans.

  • Rabbi Tobin was our officiant on 11/30/18 and I could not have pictured my wedding ceremony any differently. Since first contacting Rabbi Tobin, he was EXTREMELY helpful and full of advise for our wedding day. I have to admit I was slightly hesitant with having my wedding officiated by a Rabbi, as my husband is catholic and we are not the most religious, but Rabbi Tobin made the ceremony absolutely perfect and suiting for the both of us. He speaks so eloquently and had our entire room captivated the entire time. Most ceremonies guests admit they don't remember much, however not ours. We have had nothing but nice words from all of our guests on a beautiful ceremony and not a dry eye in the room, including myself. Rabbi Tobin, thank you so much for making this day so perfect and I could not have asked for anyone better to officiate our wedding. I am so appreciative for all you have done for us and I am so happy to have had you as such a huge part of our day!!!!

  • Rabbi Tobin came as a recommendation from a bridal Facebook page when I was trying to find a Rabbi willing to perform a ceremony in a church along with a priest. Originally I just wanted the glass breaking part but after talking to Rabbi Tobin he assured me that doing a full joint ceremony would be the right way to go and he was correct. I can’t thank him enough for coming into my wedding almost last minute and making it feel like he was part of it from the start.

  • Rabbit Tobin did a wonderful job officiating our wedding. He put a lot of thought into the readings he selected, the orchestration of the ceremony, and the way in which he included our family in the service. The ceremony felt appropriately serious while still being fun and celebratory.

  • We found Rabbi Dennis Tobin through wedding wire and we were not disappointed! Hands down, his personality, humor, and confidence made our ceremony. From the moment we met him at a diner to phone calls days before the wedding he orchestrated an amazing ceremony. Our guests were engaged and laughing while still pulling in the religious aspects. I would 100% recommended him to any future bride.

  • I got married 12/31/17. Rabbi Dennis Tobin was such an important part of our wedding day. He had ideas of how to make our interfaith ceremony balanced. He is always well prepared with helpful information outside of his responsibilities.

  • When you meet Rabbi Tobin you will know when thing, he is prepared. What you will learn after talking to him is how much he truly cares about the individuality of your wedding. He will present with an idea for a format of a ceremony which he will add, subtract or create for you. He will give suggestions, listen to your needs and go above and beyond to make your vision a reality. Whether it's the fast emails replies, facetimes or the hour long conversations we were blown away by how much Rabbi Tobin truly communicated with us throughout our engagement. He was someone who we considered “always there for us”. We did not have a rehearsal the night before. 30 minutes before the actual wedding, however Rabbi Tobin was able to get a 25 person Wedding party in order for well rehearsed processional The Rabbi commands the respect of the room while keeping the balance of humor and love in everything he says. When you book Rabbi Tobin you aren’t just booking a Rabbi. You are booking som... Read more

  • We can not express how great Rabbi Tobin was during our wedding preparation and the ceremony. Rabbi Tobin was extremely helpful in preparing us for the ceremony and ensuring that our Ketubah and marriage certificates were in order. The ceremony was perfect, and exactly how we wanted it. We received numerous compliments on the ceremony, and we cannot thank Rabbi Tobin enough for the role he played!

  • He has an off color sense of humor, said it was all down from here after the ceremony was over. Also made more off color jokes about how my fly was down, when it wasn’t. I didn’t particularly enjoy the Tobin experience however when your parents want a Jewish wedding and your ceremony is before sundown on Saturday you don’t have many options. Oh well, I’d proceed with caution if you another option possible consider that. At the least he had people fooled and they thought it was a good ceremony but I wanted to send him home without allowing him to have any food during the cocktail hour because he was an ass and yelled at me to put my drink down and to fix the chuppa as my chuppa was coming apart however I’m suspicious he was messing with it. Also had us read standard vows when we worked out the details previously. That was awkward!!!

  • Rabbi Dennis Tobin was amazing throughout our whole wedding planning process. He was easy to reach via phone or email. We only had one in-person meeting, which was convenient for me since I do not live in New Jersey. He took the time to get to know my husband and I to really personalize the ceremony. I am Jewish and my husband is Catholic. We had a Jewish wedding, but Rabbi Tobin really tried to respect both religions and was able to educate our guests during the ceremony about the Jewish traditions. He also gave great advice about the scheduling, time of events, and overall wedding advice. Our ceremony was BEAUTIFUL. He was engaging, funny, and sentimental. It was a perfect 30 minute ceremony. We had tons of compliments from our guests, with my friend even saying she wants to marry someone Jewish so she could have Rabbi Tobin as her officiant! The ceremony was a really special start to our perfect night.
