  • Rabbi Wendy came to conduct our wedding service almost last minute , when our current Rabbi ,Lisa Bock , was not able to do our wedding after several months of planning! I was not given any referrals, but happened to call a rabbi from Ventura who gave me Wendy’s name. Rabbi Wendy agreed to help us out last minute- very professional, beautiful voice and a warm person. Extremely committed when she agreed to do this for us! Very prompt, knowledgeable and competent !

  • Rabbi Wendy Spears did a wonderful job officiating our interfaith wedding. She was very helpful meeting us ahead of time in person and over phone to plan our special wedding ceremony. We loved Rabbi Spear's attention to detail and help planning our vows through texts and readings. Our family loved the wedding ceremony and shared they enjoyed spending time with the Rabbi during the reception. We would highly recommend Rabbi Spears to be part of a special event and wedding day!

  • Rabbi Wendy was so helpful and so engaging. She walked my husband-to-be and I through the entire integrated wedding process and service with kindness and warmth. I would highly recommend Rabbi Wendy to anyone requiring a reformed Rabbi as an officiant. She is a wonderful woman and person!

  • Rabbi Wendy was very supportive through the whole wedding process. We are an interacial and interfaith couple, so it was challenging finding a rabbi. Luckily ,Rabbi Wendy has a lot of experience working with similar couples. As soon as we met her, we knew that we wanted to book her. We met with her twice in person to not only talked about the wedding ceremony but also about how to navigate the challenges in marriage. She helped us through the process of selecting and ordering a ketubah. The ketubah signing and wedding ceremony were beautiful, meaningful, and special. Rabbi Wendy did a wonderful job officiating and explaining the Jewish elements. We are happy she was part of our big day!

  • Rabbi Wendy officiated our wedding, which was an interfaith ceremony (my husband was raised Jewish, I was not raised with any specific religion but had exposure to many different religions via my friends). I was very impressed with Rabbi Wendy's dedication - she truly cared about getting to know my husband and I and served as a pre-marital counselor of sorts. We were asked to read the book "A New Jewish Wedding" and "The Hard Questions", which got us to talk about life, work, finances, kids, etc. prior to the big day. The ceremony was flawless and she was very good at explaining to my side of the family what was happening and keeping the ceremony short, sweet, and not overly religious so as to not overwhelm my side of the family. We got great feedback from both sides of the family that they enjoyed the ceremony very much.

  • Dear Rabbi Wendy, I want to thank you for officiating a very warm and soulful memorial for my mother. Everyone felt the service honored my mom well. You wove the memories I shared with you into a Eulogy that really described the essence of my mom. You guided us through the prayers and songs which made us feel at peace. I can see why you became a Rabbi, as your caring nature allowed us to feel such a part of our mom during the memorial and the feelings of love, sadness and hope were felt. Thank you, Ken

  • Rabbi Wendy Spears officiated our wedding ceremony. We selected her as she focuses on interfaith weddings, and as I recently converted to Judaism, we wanted a rabbi who could bridge the gap between my Christian family and my husband's Jewish family during the ceremony. Rabbi Wendy was quick and efficient on phone and email. She met with us several times to get to know us and conduct a few marriage counseling activities, such as thinking about marriage, family, values, etc. It was a great opportunity for my husband and I to share our feelings and experiences. The ceremony itself was beautiful, but less personal that we had hoped for. She has a beautiful singing voice, and she spoke in both Hebrew and English as we planned. We highly recommend Rabbi Wendy to anyone looking for a rabbi!

  • Rabbi Spears performed my mothers memorial as if she knew my mom for many years. She was very professional, empathetic, and overall made the experience as joyful as it could be. She truly made the memorial a tribute to my moms life ! Rabbi Spears was open to suggestion and took good notes prior to the memorial.

  • My siblings and I met with Wendy and reminisced about our mom which was the foundation for Wendy's eulogy. That process was gratifying and special for us. Wendy's thoughtfully nuanced service was a blessing and delight.

  • – Rabbi Wendy gave us a copy of her eulogy after the service, which was a labor of love to put together, as she had never met Emmy during her lifetime. She was a comfort to my husband, who was grieving quite deeply the loss of his stepmother.

  • Rabbi Wendy was a joy to have as a part of our wedding. She helped us over several months leading up to the wedding by guiding us in seeking out marriage preparation materials and in crafting our vision statement for our family, by counseling us on how to emotionally prepare for such a large commitment, and perhaps most importantly - by delivering an OUTSTANDING wedding ceremony. Many of our guests commented to us that it was one of the most beautiful and intimate ceremonies of which they had ever been a part. That was one of our favorite aspects, actually: Rabbi Wendy's service included the participation of all of our guests, which helped cultivate for all in attendance an atmosphere of community bonding and support. This is exactly what we would hope for as we head into this great new adventure in life. Many thanks to her for all of her help. Very highly recommended!

  • Rabbi Spears did a wonderful job for my father-in-law's (Dick's) funeral/memorial service. She met with the family and took as much time as we needed to share about Dick's life. She then captured all that information and wrote a beautiful, meaningful, transparent eulogy that really told his whole story, even his troubled beginnings. Warmth and tenderness was very present for all of us. The whole family felt it was a wonderful service, and mom thought it was more than she could have hoped for.

  • Rabbi Wendy Spears was available on very short notice to officiate my mother's funeral. I had previously observed her officiating my Great Aunt's funeral and already knew that she would do an excellent job. She makes a big effort to get to know who your loved one was before the funeral when she meets with you. She brings the right measure of celebration of life, praise and understanding of your loved ones' life, together with great respect and appreciation for the sadness and mourning you are experiencing. She is able to absorb and synthesize a lot of information from different sources when putting together the eulogy. You will want to keep a copy of her eulogy. Her knowledge of Judaism is deep and wide and she will educate you and answer your questions about Judiaic views and her views on death if you want that and teach the attendees at your event the purpose of various rituals/prayers. She does all this in a relatively short time. She will let you set the agenda for the speakers. ... Read more
