  • Our experience wirh Rabbi Rayzel was great! Being an interfaith couple she was so understanding and wanted to make sure we both felt comfortable with the ceremony. She was always ready to give us different options and made sure the ceremony was personalized to us. I would highly recommend

    Thank you Samantha and Harry. It was a beautiful day to remember! I'm sorry if you don't think I responded fast enough. I do sometimes get backed up with pulpit duties in the Jewish holiday cycle season and other last minute funerals that come suddenly, I can only pledge to do better with the next couple! Thanks for drawing my attention to it. Blessings on a very sweet life together. I wish you much happiness! Rabbi Rayzel Ps and i'd love a picture of the ceremony, when you get a minute- its not every day that its beautiful day at the beach!

  • I loved that she took time before the ceremony to get to know us. As for the ceremony itself it couldn't have been better! We recd so many compliments on our rabbi. She's easy to work with, explains everything and is there for you. Even after the wedding she continues to check in. Marvelous.

  • Rabbi Rayzel was the perfect officiant for our wedding! We wanted a primarily Jewish ceremony even though we are an interfaith couple, and she was helpful and supportive throughout the process. Every guest raved about her to us afterward. She helped make our day as beautiful and wonderful as we could have dreamed. We can't recommend her enough!

  • Rabbi Rayzel did a wonderful job preparing us for the whole wedding process. She regularly checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly and you can tell she truly loves what she does!! I appreciated that spent a great deal of time getting to know me and my husband both as a couple and individually. She even holds events at her house for her interfaith wedding couples to meet. We attended a celebration last fall and it was great. Thanks Rabbi Rayzel!

  • Rabbi Rayzel is incredibly fun to work with. She is approachable, warm, caring, and considerate. She truly took what we wanted in a ceremony and made it even better than we could have imagined. She is a wonderful person and an excellent rabbi, who provides pre marriage counseling as well. We would use her again in a heart beat.

  • Rabbi Rayzel was phenomenal to work with! After our introduction phone call with her we knew we wanted to work with her. She was available through the entire wedding planning process and emphasized our ceremony planning to make the ceremony the best version of us. We felt so comfortable planning our interfaith ceremony with her and she was wonderful at providing us with the best information and recommendations. We initially wanted a very quick ceremony but she helped us create a ceremony that was extremely meaningful and specific to the two of us and everyone absolutely loved it. We received SO MANY compliments from EVERYONE at our wedding about how much they loved Rabbi Rayzel and our ceremony. She is wonderful and I would recommend her to any couple getting married!

  • Rabbi Rayzel was an absolute pleasure to work with! She is super responsive and always willing to help or listen. I really enjoyed attending a Shabbat dinner at her home with couples she had married and or was going to marry soon. The insight we gained from that night was invaluable and also led us to selecting a Reverend Rayzel previously worked with to co-officiate our wedding :). She is so open minded and accommodating. There is no doubt she was the perfect Rabbi for us and I'm sure she will be for you too! Thank you for everything!!!

  • Our wedding guests have not stopped talking about how absolutely incredible our wedding ceremony was, all thanks to Rabbi Rayzel! My husband (a lapsed Jew) and I (a Shiksa) had a Jew-ish/mostly secular wedding ceremony with some Irish influences tossed in, and Rabbi Rayzel was there to support and guide us every step of the way! She helped us to craft a totally unique and personalized ceremony script that was so warm and full of love. Rayzel was comfortable with our request not to have overtly religious wording or passages and truly created the perfect ceremony for us. Thank you again, Rabbi Rayzel!

  • As someone who never really envisioned getting married, I hadn't considered a single thing about the process, except that I most definitely didn't want to have to wear white, and planning events is a bit overwhelming and exhausting. With the expiration day of our marriage license fast approaching, my fiance and I realized that we needed the certificate signed very soon. Feeling at a loss because neither of us prefer crowds, being in the spotlight, myriad logistical details, nor are we rolling in wealth at the moment, we decided to keep it as simple and stress free as humanly possible. Finding wedding wire online, we located Rabbi Rayzel in Philedelphia. She was the biggest help imaginable for the event. While supporting our desire to keep it simple, she also had a pile of resources for us to look over and details to consider that would impact us emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually going into a new life together. It was relaxing, fragrant, and very welcoming. ... Read more

  • My husband & I had an interfaith wedding this past September and asked Rabbi Rayzel, and a priest, to officiate. She helped us think about the most important part of wedding planning - not necessarily the party, but our lives together as husband & wife. She was very thoughtful and helped us think more about important topics that we may not have considered. She also co-officiated a wonderful ceremony - we received so many compliments from our guests about our ceremony & about how it was so tailored and customized. We definitely recommend Rabbi Rayzel to anyone considering a Jewish or interfaith wedding!

    Thank you so much and a big thanks for posting the picture!

  • I am Jewish and my husband is Irish-Catholic. Rabbi Rayzel worked with us to tailor the perfect ceremony. My husband and I are so thrilled with how incredible, sentimental, and loving the ceremony was. Our family and friends keep talking about it! It was so special. My husband's family as well as my family were in complete awe over the Jewish symbols as well as the personalizations. The ceremony truly exceeded our expectations.

    Thank you so much. The pleasure was all mine! Stay in touch send pictures !
