  • I HIGHLY recommend Rabbi Melinda Bracha Bernstein! She was an absolute pleasure to work with during the beach wedding of Kim and Grace. She was very professional AND a lot of fun! A wonderful combination when looking for that special person to officiate your wedding! I hope to see you in Key West for more destination weddings! 💛

    Thank you so very much for your kind praise Rachel. I absolutely adored Kim & Grace's Key West destination wedding experience. Being in the center of their most treasured first marital moments as wife and wife was such a blessing. Working with you was so great too and I do look forward to seeing you in the Keys soon. Much love and appreciation, Melinda

  • I was most impressed with Rabbi Melinda who recently officiated at my daughter's wedding, a destination celebration in Key West on May 4, 2019. There were 100 guests from different religious backgrounds and she was universally praised for her meaningful and sincere spiritual leadership of the ceremony. She has a lovely, calm manner and is a pleasure to engage with. She also provided insightful, helpful suggestions in the planning discussions prior to the wedding. I think she is amazing and highly recommend her.

    Dear Karen: I thank you so much for your deep reflection and kindness of sharing. It was truly an honor to stand in the center of two beautiful women as their wedding Rabbi. And also most fortunate to embrace the universality of love, friendship and the true meaning of life that exist within us all. Warmest regards, Melinda

  • Rabbi Melinda prepared a sweet, simple, loving and very special ceremony for us. We got married on the beach and wanted the setting to stand out, so she had a wonderfully creative solution to our lack of a chuppah - our parents held her Tallit over our heads to symbolize one. It was unique and perfect, and incorporated our families. She was incredibly easy to work with in the planning process, and very thoughtful. She found a special Katubah that fit our theme just for us and customized the ceremony to fit our requests, but also added her own personal touches. We would highly recommend her to anyone getting married in Florida (she is willing to travel!). Thank you Rabbi Melinda!

    responded with the following comments.

    Melissa, thank you for sharing your most wonderful day and sweet words of praise. And of course, for being so open to the Chuppah idea. :):) Many blessings to you and Tom as you build upon the love you have created so divinely. Warmest Regards, Rabbi Melinda

  • 5 Stars are insufficient to rate Rabbi Bernstein. Truly Rabbi Bernstein justifies the existence of the internet. From the second our family sought a Rabbi to officiate at our Son’s wedding and pressed the “send button” emailing her our contact information Rabbi Bernstein was in touch with us immediately and took us under her wing guiding us to what was simply a “perfect wedding” event. We are a large family with 5 children and this wedding was a truly blessed event for our entire family as well as the Bride’s family.

    Thank YOU Helen & Allan, for your kind praise and for giving me the honor to serve as chosen Rabbi to officiate Greg and Ellen's wedding. The kindness of your loving family is a great tribute to a good life, filled with merit and honor! Warmest regards, Melinda

  • Melinda was perfect for our ceremony. We wanted a jewish wedding that our families could be a part of, held in our backyard. Melinda met with us prior, in a convenient location to get the details settled and to get an opportunity to personalize the ceremony for us. The day of the wedding, she showed up, chupa and all, ready to go. The ceremony was short and sweet- just what we were looking for and we couldn't have been happier. Melinda is vibrant, positive and exactly what we needed. Thank you so much Rabbi Melinda!

    Ellen! What sweet words of praise! It was an honor to be your chosen Rabbi. May your marriage always be blessed with sweetness and joy! Warmest regards, Melinda

Not only that, Melinda made us feel at ease from start to finish, was available for all our questions and went out of her way to make sure our day was perfect and it was perfect! Don't think twice about hiring Melinda and contact her quick before someone else does!

She showed up early and even helped out where help was needed before the ceremony. Do not think twice about using Rabbi Melinda for your occasion.
