  • If you are looking for a rabbi for your wedding, look no further! Rabbi Linda is amazing! We were very fortunate to find her to officiate our wedding. From our first meeting, we were extremely excited to work with her to craft our interfaith ceremony. She took a lot of time to get to know us and understand what we were looking for while providing us with information on traditional customs and offering ideas when we had none. She was always available for consult leading up to the ceremony and also made sure she had back-ups for all the essentials on our wedding day. The ceremony itself was beautiful, touching, and reflected our uniqueness as a couple. Our family and friends were very impressed with the way she wove together the traditional pieces of the ceremony and explained what was going on throughout. We were both touched by the way she shared our story with both humor and romance. She certainly made it an experience we will cherish throughout our lives. We couldn’t have... Read more

  • We had a wonderful experience with Rabbi Linda for our wedding in June. It can feel a little strange to find a rabbi online, but she instantly made us feel welcome in her home, and even after only meeting a couple of times we didn't at all feel like we had a stranger officiating our wedding. From the beginning, we were both so impressed with how organized she was: she had pre-printed materials for us describing the wedding ceremony and different alternatives we could choose from if we needed help, she created a detailed timeline that we could follow to make sure we she were ready for the big day, and she was very clear about what information she needed from us while keeping detailed notes on everything we told her about ourselves and our families. She was very flexible if we had our own ideas or vision for how we wanted things to go. We are both not super religious or traditional and that was fine with her. Throughout the whole night and still to this day people have been tellin... Read more

    I appreciated your being so organized too, Rachel. And you and Eric are always welcome here. How lovely that your guests felt it was one of the most beautiful ceremonies they had ever seen! It was great fun putting it together with you both, and it was an exquisite wedding in every way.

  • Rabbi Linda is a rockstar! My (now) husband and I met with a number of rabbi's before we found Rabbi Linda, and once we met her, we knew instantly that she was the perfect person to wed us. Neither my husband nor I are practicing Jews, and our families are also both very reformed, but we felt strongly about paying homage to our ancestors in a Jewish ceremony. Rabbi Linda helped explain the meaning behind the traditions that were typically in a Jewish ceremony, and never once pressured either of us to include something that didn't feel right to us. We ended up with a really beautiful ceremony that felt personalized and special and both our families were so happy with our decision to work with her. She was also incredibly accessible to us during the lead up to our wedding. She was quick to reply, and fun to work with, and we both feel like we now have a Rabbi we could contact about anything from Jewish theory to an interesting movie we saw the week before. We couldn't recommend her more!

    Eden, I loved getting to know you and Jack; you certainly have a rabbi now. Your wedding was magnificent - no wonder it was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings. Working with you on the ceremony was a great pleasure, and I’m delighted that you also loved both the process and the result.

  • After our ceremony, guests rushed up to tell us what an incredibly touching, personal, and meaningful experience it was to watch us get married. They were impressed and curious about our amazing officiant, Rabbi Linda Goldberg. We were not surprised! We knew after our first meeting with her that her presence at our wedding would be a true gift. We are a bi-cultural couple with a toddler. She and her lovely husband Michael welcomed the three of us into their home with open arms. During our first meeting with Rabbi Linda our immediate sense was one of being guided and cared for. We can't imagine anyone we could have trusted more to be in sync with our wishes, attentive to both our cultures, respectful of what was most important to us, generous with her time, sincere in her dedication and love of what she does, and completely informed on every technical detail (i.e. Marriage license) that needed to be completed and when! Rabbi Linda might be the most organized person we've ever met and in... Read more

  • As a gay couple together 14 years who decided to get married, our plans were for a simple ceremony. We are older and wanted something tasteful and uncomplicated. We wanted to hold our ceremony in Central Park NYC. We were so fortunate to find Rabbi Linda Goldberg. She took an ordinary ceremony and turned it into an extraordinary event. She is so diligent and passionate about what she does. She invited us to discuss what our objectives for the ceremony were, asked what we wanted, and she in return suggested so many things that we were oblivious to. We are an interfaith couple but decided to go for a traditional Jewish ceremony, not very long, so the Protestant side of the family would understand what the Jewish ceremony and traditions meant. She gave us many choices and did the whole ceremony in Hebrew and translated it into English. She asked us to write personal descriptions of each other and to send them to her separately via email. She then incorporated seamlessly and beautif... Read more

    Scott, it was very easy to be passionate and diligent about marrying you and David. You are an amazing couple. It was an honor to stand with you and your families in Central Park and a pleasure to continue our friendship going forward. Thank you for staying in touch!

  • We absolutely loved Rabbi Linda. From the moment we met her, she made us sure that we were choosing the perfect Rabbi for us. In our few meetings, she truly got to know us both. She guided us along the way being open to any and all of our wishes and choices. She asked each of us to write her a confidential email about our partner and then used this information to tailor our ceremony to one that belonged to just us! She made our ceremony so personal and intimate, that many guests wanted to know where we found her. Thank you so much Rabbi Linda-- we are forever grateful to you for making our ceremony perfect for us.

  • We cannot recommend Rabbi Linda more highly--she is everything we dared to hope for in a wedding officiant and more! When we first set out on the search for an officiant, we wanted someone who would be willing to perform a fully custom, modern and progressive Jewish ceremony that matched our values and which deeply reflected us as a secular but culturally Jewish couple. Linda more than rose to the occasion. She took the time to get to know us personally, shared information with us on Jewish traditions for us to consider without ever being pushy or imposing herself and guided us through the process of drafting our own ketubah, vows and Seven Blessings. She is incredibly responsive (it seems like she answered every email within 30 min and often sooner!) and was incredibly generous with her time. This is the rabbi that you want by your side on your wedding day and throughout the wedding process. She is warm, patient, kind and a beautiful writer and speaker. Dozens of our guest... Read more

  • To say that our expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. Rabbi Goldberg was a pure delight to work with. We had a jointly officiated ceremony and she partnered with the pastor absolutely seamlessly. She was so personable and very thorough. She brought us in a for a consultation in her lovely home in White Plains and took the time to figure out exactly what we were looking for. She was always easy to contact and consistently responsive. She made the ceremony perfectly balanced and complimented the pastor flawlessly. She brought a warmth and kindness that added a highly touching element to everything. You can really tell she cares and is passionate about what she does. Its apparent she completely understands the significance of the moment. We could not recommend any vendor any higher. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Rabbi Goldberg for adding such a special touch to our big day!

    Will, I loved co-officiating with the pastor for you and Amanda. And putting together the ceremony that worked for you was a pleasure. You’re right. I am passionate about what I do, and I’m truly blessed to do it for people like you two.

  • Working with Rabbi Linda was not only a pleasure, but illuminated the experience of designing our ceremony. We come from different backgrounds and wanted our ceremony to reflect that, and Linda was the perfect person to work with. We spent several hours with her going through the aspects of the traditional Jewish wedding ritual, discussing which aspects we wanted to include, which we wanted to adapt, and which didn’t feel right to us. Linda’s knowledge deepened our experience of our marriage ceremony. Her attitude was both scholarly and inclusive. She also took special care to include aspects from Lee’s tradition, even researching it herself, and in the end seamlessly melded both traditions into a special ceremony that was unique to us. All along the way, she was perfectly prepared, down to having copies of our vows for us to read. And her gentle, open, yet learned manner at the ceremony made everyone in attendance feel the love and care with which all three of us undertook ... Read more

    Elizabeth, thank you so much for your outstanding review and even more so for the opportunity to marry you and Lee - in South Africa, no less! I too am pleased with the love and care the three of us put into the ceremony and glad that I was able to learn about Lee’s fascinating tradition. It was an honor and illuminating pleasure for me too!

  • 2nd best choice of the day! ;) How to accurately describe someone who brightens a room with her smile and warms a heart with her hug. Rabbi Linda is exactly the person you want by your side during the stressful time of engagement. It is so nice to have the entire process tailored to each couples needs and preferences but it also helps to feel listened too while in the care of someone so proficient and knowledge. Rabbi Linda is always respectful and flexible. Having her involved in your wedding is an honor and one choice you are sure not to regret. Highly recommended! Best of luck to everyone on their special day.

    Many thanks for your kind words, Sara. How lovely of you to say I was proficient, flexible and a listener. It was certainly an honor to work with you also.
