  • My wife and I are both reform Jews - we celebrate high holidays, but don't really attend synagogue and therefore did not have a rabbi we knew to officiate our wedding. After some time on Google and various wedding review website, I came across Rabbi Linda's profile and gave her a cold call. From our first conversation, I could tell she was someone that would make us feel comfortable and that we would be excited to work with. We met with Linda in person a few times and had a couple of additional phone/video calls prior to our wedding date. We are so happy that we found and were able to work with Rabbi Linda. People remarked at how lovely and personal our ceremony was (which was something very important to us). We wanted our guests to remember that they were there to celebrate the love of two specific individuals and we knew that the ceremony set the tone for the remainder of the evening. I would highly recommend Rabbi Linda to a couple planning their wedding. As practicing but not... Read more

    Thank you so much, Todd. It was a pleasure to work with you and Adina. I loved how you understood the importance of the ceremony and its role in setting the tone for the whole evening. Be well.

  • Rabbi Linda was the best vendor we worked with for our wedding. We liked her right away on the phone and then meeting her. We picked her because we wanted to be married by a female Reform Rabbi who eagerly performed interfaith and LGBT weddings. She was so easy to work with and so organized! Every question was answered right away and she easily found time to meet with us as needed. She helped us craft a ceremony that felt the right mix of formulaic and custom, taught us about Jewish traditions we weren't as familiar with, and even helped us add a ritual from my husband's Wiccan faith (that she researched, suggested, and learned on her own!). The ceremony was just the right length, tailored to our guests who were mostly not Jewish so everyone understood what was happening. She helped us get a Ketubah and doing the proofing and translating, told our story during the ceremony by combining information from both of us, and had printouts of vows and readings at the ceremony. A few days b... Read more

    Thank you so much for your complete and thoughtful review, Heather! I’m delighted that - as an independent, non-denominational rabbi - I was able to make your ceremony meaningful for you and Jared.

  • Rabbi Linda is such a kind person whose love for love truly shows in her work. My husband is not Jewish, but I am, and it was very important to both of us that our ceremony reflected my upbringing, but was also very simple and personal. Believe it or not, in 2019 America, I found it so difficult to find a Rabbi who would marry us as an "interfaith" couple even though I am not religious and neither is my husband. From our first phone call, Rabbi Linda made us feel so comfortable and excited to be getting married. She is a great listener, is extremely organized and pays so much attention to every family/ceremony detail. She helped answer every single one of our questions, religious or otherwise, and was available every time we needed her. Our ceremony perfectly captured our simple style, and yet was so tasteful which she made it her very own way custom to us. She was especially helpful in finding ways to include my in-laws and my husband's brothers in our ceremony so that everyone felt i... Read more

  • We absolutely LOVE Rabbi Linda! She partnered with our congregation’s rabbi to create the most wonderful ceremony for us that integrated Jewish tradition and was also totally accessible for our non-Jewish guests with lots of meaningful and personal touches. Not only did we love it, our guests all raved about it the entire night! Some even said it was the best ceremony they’d ever seen. The entire process was great - Linda is accommodating, extremely kind, caring, professional, and she also has a great sense of humor :). It was everything we could have hoped for and more!

    Kathy, how lovely to hear that you and your guests found the ceremony to be so enjoyable. It was a delight working with you and Aaron, and I’m thrilled that you loved the results.

  • Working with Rabbi Linda was one of the best decisions we made, and we truly cannot recommend her enough. She gave us an amazing ceremony that really was the most meaningful part of the whole day. She really made sure to get to know us through multiple pre-wedding meetings, and visiting her house to chat with her was one of the most fun parts of the wedding planning process. Many of our guests assumed she was a family rabbi that had known us our whole lives given how personal her speech was. She also worked with us to personalize every element of the ceremony to make sure it was exactly what we wanted. We had an interfaith wedding and wanted a rabbi to officiate but didn't want it to be too religious. For each tradition, she told us the traditional way, a nontraditional way, or said we could scrap it entirely. We ended up keeping more traditions than we expected because her creative adaptations were so beautiful. One of the most emotional parts of the whole day was having our famil... Read more

  • We love Rabbi Linda!! My now-husband and I live in Dallas and planned our wedding from afar. Rabbi Linda was so flexible and always accommodating to meet our always changing schedules, whether it was an early morning or late night FaceTime call - she really got to know us! Throughout the cocktail hour, our guests were asking how we found Rabbi Linda and how beautiful the ceremony was. Even some of our non-Jewish friends commented about how interesting and inclusive the ceremony was. We wanted short, meaningful and sweet and that is exactly what we received. We cannot say enough great words!!

    Chelsea, thank you so much for your kind words. I’m delighted that your guests of different backgrounds enjoyed the ceremony. All good wishes for you and Andrew!

  • Rabbi Linda is the most kind person we have ever met. We got so many compliments on our wedding ceremony and comments on how well spoken she was and how perfect she described our relationship. From the beginning, she listened to exactly what we wanted, always made sure we knew what was going on and that we were organized to accomplish everything that needed to be done before our wedding. She makes you feel like family and I truly feel like she has known us forever. She responded so quickly anytime we reached out, offered any help that we needed, and so much more. Planning our wedding, we naturally got stressed but anytime it came to Rabbi Linda, we felt so calm. I really couldn't have asked for anyone better to marry us and would suggest anyone looking for a rabbi to use her wether you're very religious or not religious at all. She's incredible! Thank you again, rabbi :)

    Thank you so much, Alexa, for your kind words. I loved working with you and Sam, and I’m delighted that you and your guests loved the ceremony we developed together.

  • Rabbi Linda helped us craft a ceremony that was uniquely us. It blended old traditions with modern elements that were important to us. She was not only so knowledgeable and totally prepared for anything (her husband even brought their own sound system which we ended up using), but so very kind and accommodative even as we made some last minute changes.

    So my pleasure, Kira. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and David. All good wishes for you both.

  • I wish I could adequately express how amazing Rabbi Linda is. She was recommended by a dear friend of mine, and little did we know that she would become such a special person in our lives. My husband and I feel so fortunate that we crossed paths with her, and that we had the honor of her marrying us at our wedding. WE GENUINELY FELT THAT OUR WEDDING WAS AS IMPORTANT TO RABBI LINDA AS IT WAS TO US. It does not get much better than that. She is incredibly kind and caring, and she (and her husband!) embraced us with open arms and an open heart. She accommodated our busy schedules and was incredibly flexible. She was responsive via phone and e-mail, and she listened attentively in order to understand what it was that we wanted for our ceremony. She hit the nail on the head! Everyone at our wedding was blown away by the ceremony, and how personal it felt. Rabbi Linda is person who exudes warmth and love and we feel so fortunate to know her. Thank you so much Rabbi Linda for helping to make ... Read more

  • We loved working with Rabbi Linda to create a wedding ceremony that was unique for us. We both wanted a somewhat traditional Jewish wedding, but light on the religious aspects. Rabbi Linda understood our concerns and worked with us to put together a ceremony that felt right for us while respecting the important traditions. We didn't have a prior relationship with her, so she made a point of meeting with us multiple times (including by Facetime to work around our schedule and the distance between us), in order to get to know us better. As a result, the ceremony included a wonderful section in which Rabbi Linda told our story that helped make the ceremony feel very personal. Multiple guests have made a point of telling us how much they enjoyed the ceremony, thanks in large part to Rabbi Linda.

    Thank you, Jeff. It was a pleasure working with you and Jen. And I’m so glad your guests enjoyed the ceremony.
