  • Rabbi Larry Seidman performed and conducted an excellent service for my wedding. He found ways to achieve a great interfaith service that had both my wife traditions and my Jewish traditions. Our services were charming, and Rabbi Larry Seidman did an excellent job. The couple’s meetings conducted by Rabbi Larry Seidman helped my wife and me discuss our future couples’ goals and raise children with the two cultural backgrounds. I highly recommend Rabbi Larry Seidman for anyone looking for a Rabbi to officiate their wedding.

  • Rabbi Larry did an amazing job officiating our wedding. We wanted to do an interfaith Catholic and Jewish wedding, and he was very helpful in making that happen in the best way he could. He worked with us every step of the way and was incredibly flexible with organizing the ceremony. I would recommend him any day.

  • What an amazing experience we had with Rabbi Larry! From the day we met him we knew we had chosen the right man to officiate our wedding. As a couple who is new to Judaism, we needed someone who understood our unique needs and would accommodate our "not so traditional" Jewish wedding. He did just that! Our calls leading up to the wedding were always informational and uplifting, and he helped us with so much more than just our ceremony...he helped us navigate life :) We couldn't have been happier with our wedding ceremony and I can't thank Rabbi Larry enough for offering to be there for us, even after the big day has come and gone.

    Thanks for the lovely words. I hope you feel free to call if I can help in the future. Best of everything to you, David, and Charlie. Rabbi Larry

  • We feel so lucky to have found Rabbi Larry. He made such an impact on the best day of our lives and we could not be more grateful for him. We come from two large families of different faiths, and Rabbi Larry along with our other officiant were able to really personalize our ceremony for us to make a memorial ceremony that everyone loved. Prior to the wedding we had couples counseling with him where he really took the time to get to know us and even our families. By the time our big day came, Rabbi Larry, his wife Linda, and their dog Nava were practically family to us. We are so grateful that Rabbi Larry came into our lives and we couldn’t recommend him any more!

    Dear Nicki Thanks for these beautiful words. It was a joy for me to be with you and Eli. Involving Uncle Billy made it even more beautiful. I wish you both everything wonderful in the years to come. Feel free wo call me if ever I can help. L'shalom Rabbi Larry

  • My (now) husband and I felt like it really was meant to be that Rabbi Larry’s “Rational Rabbi” site was recommended to us by a friend when we were searching for a progressive Rabbi to officiate our inter-faith marriage in Los Angeles. Sam is Jewish, and I was raised Christian... however we decided that we wanted a ceremony that included Jewish traditions which resonated with both of us in terms of our spirituality and heritage. Rabbi Larry created a beautiful ceremony for us, by getting to know us personally and talking about each of our values as they relate to God, faith, family, and marriage. Our meetings were fun, educational, and productive for us. We enjoyed getting to know Rabbi Larry and his wife Rabbi Linda... clearly an intelligent, kind, well-traveled couple, whom we loved to also have as guests at our reception. Our wedding was “California boho chic”, drawing from the Art Deco touches at our venue, The Fig House. It was perfect. Thank You Rabbi Larry!

    Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasurer to be with you. Rabbi Linda and I both wish you all the best in the years to come.

  • Rabbi Larry was exactly what he wanted in a rabbi. His "getting to know the couple" process was very thorough and he was extremely accommodating when it came to making all of our ceremony dreams come true. Everything turned out exactly as we hoped! Also, he has a great dog.

  • My wife Karen and I had an incredibly positive experience with Rabbi Larry as our wedding officiant. Rabbi Larry was caring thoughtful and understanding of our conception of Judaism and allowed us to express ourselves at our wedding in a way that made us comfortable. Rabbi Larry did an excellent job at the ceremony but I very much also enjoyed our private chats with Larry before our wedding day. Could not be more highly recommended.

    It was a joy to work with you. Everybody has their own internal understanding of religion. It is great to be able to express it publicly. Thanks for the kind words.

  • Rabbi Seidman was simply amazing. He held several meetings with my daughter and her husband and covered everything in those meetings. He navigated beautifully the issue of religion of the husband. The service he conducted made everyone happy. It had the right combination of new and old and really reflected what we all agreed to in the meetings. He was responsive to all communications and highly reliable. His price was very reasonable. We got multiple compliments about the service and we highly recommend him.

    Thank you. It was a -pleasure to meet you and your family. I am looking forward to hearing wonderful things in the future.

  • Rabbi Larry was absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed our time getting to know him before our ceremony and getting to know each other better as a couple through our sessions with him. He guided us through everything we needed to know, before, during and even after our wedding ceremony. He is such a kind and caring Rabbi and we absolutely loved having him officiate our wedding ceremony! We are so thrilled to have found him! Thank you Rabbi Larry!
