  • Rabbi Linda Golberg married my (new!) wife and I yesterday, and it was the most beautiful ceremony! She is Jewish and I am not, and Rabbi Goldberg seamlessly incorporated the traditions that were important to my wife, and modified as necessary to fit who we are as a couple. She met/spoke with us several times before the ceremony, was prompt in answering every question we had, arrived early the day of, and remembered every detail (even the ones we forgot!). People from both sides of our family commented on how special the ceremony was, and this was in large part to the sensitive, thoughtful, and professional job that Rabbi Goldberg did. Thank you so much!!

    It was a great pleasure, Harry, to work with you and Shira and to officiate at your beautiful wedding. I’m so glad your families liked the ceremony. All good wishes!

  • Rabbi Linda was a fabulous officiant for our New York City wedding, which included friends, family, and relatives traveling from all over the world. Though my new husband and I are both Jewish, neither of us are particularly religious and she helped us craft a ceremony that mixed traditions old and new, making us feel as though the ceremony reflected our values while still making our more religious relatives feel at home. She is very smart (a former CEO-turned-rabbi), exceedingly warm and sensitive to the needs of her clients. We would recommend her to anyone!

    I so appreciate your lovely words, Laurie. You and Jonathan are a magnificent couple, and it was my pleasure to be part of your amazing, creative ceremony.

  • Rabbi Linda was the "talk of the town" at our daughter's wedding where the ceremony was as memorable as the reception! The beautiful and meaningful ceremony that she personalized for the wedding couple was flawlessly executed and inspirational. Everyone who attended was mesmerized, educated and inspired regardless of their religious affiliations. From my experience, I must say that rarely occurs during a wedding ceremony. She spent several meetings getting to know the couple and passed on some sage advise about marriage and family warmly shepherding this young couple as they entered this new phase of their relationship. I can't recommend Rabbi Linda Portnoy Goldberg strongly enough. She is the real deal!

    It was a great pleasure working with Cat and Ned on their wedding ceremony, Cathy. I’m delighted that it was so well received. All good wishes to you and your lovely family.

  • Rabbi Linda recently officiated our wedding and she did such an amazing job. My partner and I come from different religious backgrounds and Rabbi Linda was so attentive to both our needs. Communicating with Rabbi Linda was a breeze. She is so organized and the easiest person to talk to. Rabbi Linda clearly loves what she does and she crafted such a beautiful ceremony, we’re still getting so many compliments. We couldn’t imagine our special day with out her. Thank you!

    Thank you so much, Jackie, for your kind words and for the opportunity to work with you and Darrell on your beautiful wedding ceremony. I’m so glad you chose me to be your rabbi.

  • We can’t say enough wonderful things about Rabbi Linda! We’re an interfaith couple and Rabbi Linda officiated our Jewish wedding. She did an excellent job creating a ceremony that was respective of both of our faiths and explaining the ceremony so that everyone understood the significance of each part. She was a pleasure to meet with, and we felt like we got to know each other over the six months that we met with her- she is caring, considerate, and warm. She also is extremely well organized and professional- she gave us a timeline with everything that we needed to complete for the wedding the first time we met with her. Everyone commented how beautiful the ceremony was and how personal the story of us as a couple was.

    I’m so glad you and your guests liked the ceremony we created together, Cat. It was a joy to work with you both. Love and all good wishes.

  • We absolutely LOVED Rabbi Linda. She really spent a generous amount of time getting to know us and learning about our relationship in the run-up to the ceremony. And the ceremony itself was lovely: uplifting, sweet, meaningful and funny. We got so many kind words from our guests about the ceremony she put together. She's a tremendously charismatic and warm-hearted person, and that shows both before the big day and during. It made our wedding day truly special, can't recommend her highly enough.

    Thank you so much, Willy. It was lovely working with you and Jess and a pleasure to tell your beautiful story. And how great to do the ceremony by the lake under a chuppah made by Jess!

  • Rabbi Linda is a very special person and someone I would recommend without hesitation to officiate at your wedding. My sister passed away suddenly 5 months before my niece’s wedding and Rabbi Linda made the wedding ceremony so beautiful and personal. She’s easy to work with, sensitive to everyone’s needs and has a great sense of humor. Sorry there’s only 5 stars to press.

    It was a privilege to work with you all, Linda. Thank you so much for your beautiful, thoughtful review. Love and best wishes for you and your family.

  • Rabbi Linda did an absolute amazing job officiating our wedding ceremony. She really cared to get to know my husband and myself before hand and tailored the ceremony to our relationship and personalities beautifully. She was organized, thoughtful, and treated us like friends rather than a transaction. I highly recommend her!

    I loved getting to know you and Matt, Amanda. You are a very special couple, and it was my pleasure to tailor your ceremony to be right for you. Many thanks for your kind words.

  • Rabbi Linda was INCREDIBLE. From the moment my fiance and I first met with her, we knew we didn't want anyone else to marry us. Every time we went to meet with her, we planned to stay for around 30 minutes, but always ended up there for over an hour since we were having such a great time. She gave us the ceremony of our dreams, and catered every aspect to exactly what we wanted. Rabbi Linda didn't just give us a cookie cutter ceremony, but actually got to know us and gave us a personalized ceremony that made us both (and all our guests) laugh and cry!

    Rachel, I’m so glad that you and Michael enjoyed the process as well as the result of our work together. And why shouldn’t you have had the ceremony of your dreams! Love and all good wishes.

  • Rabbi Linda was truly a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond for our wedding day! She crafted a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for us. We wanted to find a rabbi who could help us incorporate Jewish elements into our wedding and Rabbi Linda was the perfect choice. She met with us in person several times prior to the wedding and twice over Skype. In addition, she was in constant communication over e-mail and very quick to reply to any inquiries. Rabbi Linda expertly guided us through the history and meaning of various Jewish wedding rituals, and we were also able to incorporate some additional elements into our wedding that reflected the non-Jewish parts of our backgrounds. Rabbi Linda let us make our own selections for certain aspects of the ceremony such as The Seven Blessings and add our own elements such as vows to make it a ceremony that was meaningful to us as a couple. From our very first meeting with Rabbi Linda we felt we were in very good hands. Importantly, Rabbi... Read more

    Alex, it was my pleasure to work with you and Jen on your ceremony. You are a remarkable couple, and I loved telling your beautiful story. I also very much appreciated all the creativity and attention you brought to the process, and like you, I loved what we came up with together.

  • Rabbi Linda was an amazing officiant for our wedding. Being from out of town, and not having a strong connection to a childhood rabbi, my now husband and I were thrilled with Linda's ability to befriend us and get to know us in the year leading up to our wedding. Linda was extremely accommodating to our busy schedules, and she regularly agreed to do Face Time calls when necessary. She was patient, and she respected our decisions regarding our ceremony. She is warm and friendly, and she is a beautiful public speaker. Many of our guests told us how much they loved our ceremony and how much they loved our rabbi. She even got through our outdoor ceremony just in time before a huge rain storm came in across the Hudson River. You will be very happy for choosing Rabbi Linda as your ceremony officiant. We both hope that we will continue to stay in touch with her through the years, and that is a sign of a great rabbi!

    Stephanie, it was a great pleasure getting to know you and Greg and working together with you on your beautiful wedding. I’m so glad that your family and friends loved what we came up with. Looking forward to staying in touch!

  • Linda officiated our wedding in September and she gets our highest recommendation. My wife and I are culturally Jewish but non-practicing. We wanted to be married by a rabbi so that we could honor that part of our heritage, but it was important to have some flexibility to choose which traditions we wanted and didn’t want in our ceremony. Linda was incredibly helpful in this regard, not only in customizing the ceremony to our liking, but explaining what each tradition involves, the history and meaning behind them, and walking us through how they would fit into our ceremony. We learned a lot from her. She was patient as my wife and I debated which traditions we wanted to include, sometimes changing our minds multiple times. She enlightened us to some wonderful aspects of Jewish weddings that we were unaware of. For instance, we didn’t know what a ketubah was, but now we have a beautiful, meaningful document/piece-of-art mounted in our living room. Additionally, she was always avai... Read more

  • Rabbi Linda was wonderful. She made everything so easy for us and was accommodating and organized. She did our wedding on a saturday, and met us on multiple Saturdays, so if that is a concern. One of the best.
