  • Rabbi Steve was an absolute lifesaver. We'd originally asked my uncle to officiate but due to unforeseen circumstances outside of his control, he ended up having to back out on his initial agreement and we were left scrambling to find an officiant with only a few short months left before the wedding. My (now) husband is Jewish and we loved the idea of honoring that tradition on our wedding day. The date we chose for our wedding happened to be Rosh Hashanah which, while beautifully symbolic, made finding a rabbi willing & available to officiate that day particularly challenging. Rabbi Steve was so warm, understanding & supportive, from the moment I first reached out to him with our plight, to the day he invited us to meet with him in his home & treated us to delicious homemade goodies from his wife, to the ceremony itself. We wanted someone who could strike that delicate balance between the serious & sacred and the playful & joyful, and he did that to a tee. More than one of our guests ... Read more

  • Rabbi Steve is incredibly kind and thoughtful. He made the effort over many months to make sure he knew us as a couple, what we loved and respected about each other, and our dreams for our life together, and he helped us understand the Jewish traditions of marriage and everything involved in making it happen. 100% recommend!

  • My husband and I could not recommend Rabbi Steven more highly. As a mixed faith gay couple, there is a decent amount of trepidation that can arise when selecting an officiant for your wedding. However, Rabbi Steve was warm, welcoming, and open. Throughout the process, Rabbi Steve, worked with us to create a beautiful wedding ceremony that was tailored to what we want. He always provided the different options, but allowed us, the couple, to make all of the decisions. Rabbi Steve also put in a lot of effort by meeting us multiple times to get know Joey and I to ensure the ceremony felt personal. If you're looking for a Jewish officiant in Wine Country, Rabbi Steve is your guy!

  • Rabbi Steve is fantastic. My husband was raised Catholic and I was raised Jewish. I wanted to keep some Jewish traditions around during the ceremony and reception. A family friend had given me Rabbi Steve's information, after they saw Rabbi officiate a wedding in Sonoma. So when it came time to chose an officiant for our wedding, I knew Rabbi Steve was the Rabbi for us. Rabbi worked with us to figure out what aspects were important to me and and which ones were not. He also helped explain certain traditions to my husband, which came very helpful to him. My husband and I were in Sonoma for the weekend a month before our wedding, Rabbi and his wife welcomed us into their home. This allowed us to discuss more details about the ceremony face to face instead of Skype or over the phone. The Wine Country Rabbi is ready to work around any challenges of a Jewish wedding and what works with social norms of a wedding. Our wedding ended up falling on one of the hottest days on record in Berkel... Read more

  • Rabbi Steve is amazing! As an interfaith couple, we were not sure we would be able to find a rabbi willing to work with us for our wedding. Not only did Rabbi Steve work with us, he met with us several times to get to know us and invited us to his home, along with our Catholic priest, to design a personalized Jewish/Christian wedding ceremony. He explained all the Jewish wedding traditions, helped us find all the items we needed including a beautiful ketubah and mezuzah, and took care of sending in our paperwork to register the marriage with the state. Most importantly, he did it all with humor, patience, and grace. If we didn't live so far from him, we would love to attend his community in Wine Country! Regardless of distance, we now feel Rabbi Steve is "our rabbi" and we will contact him in the future for any needs we have.

  • Rabbi Steve was very accommodating and understanding towards our unique ceremony. My husband is Jewish, and I am not. With quality questions, and a kind professionalism, he was empathetic and found that our marriage would work well with his services and guidance. We look back at our wedding day with joy and love, and Rabbi Steve was an essential piece of our joyous day. He made us both feel comfortable and relaxed with the process.

  • Rabbi Finley was absolutely wonderful to work with. We had interviewed several rabbis and it was extremely important to find someone who we connected with spiritually, emotionally and intellectually. Rabbi Finley did an amazing job helping us focus on the essence of our relationship and what it meant to become married. He was kind, open-minded, understanding, and helped us dive into all of the important issues. We had several meaningful conversations leading up to the wedding. The ceremony itself flowed so well that we had multiple people say it was the most moving wedding they had attended. It was heartfelt, funny, and soulful. We feel very close to Rabbi Finley and look forward to maintaining our relationship for years to come.

  • Rabbi Steve was amazing in every way! We were getting married in Napa via Los Angeles, and finding a local Rabbi can be challenging, especially on New Years Eve! Finding Rabbi Steve made our search worthwhile. He is personal, he is available and he wants to know about the couple he is talking with. We began over a few FaceTime chats, followed by a few in person meetings. His commentary during the ceremony was personal and funny. We along with our guests had a fun time, the pace was perfect and everyone felt like they were a part of the ceremony. Thank you Rabbi Steve for making our amazing evening all the more special and personalized.

  • We couldn't be happier with Rabbi Steve Finley. He was a fantastic choice to officiate our wedding in Cabo. He is very professional and really cares for your event. He took the time to Skype us a few times to get to know us and to understand exactly what we wanted. He was also very flexible with our schedules. Everyone of my friends and family had nothing but positive things to say about our ceremony. Thank you for making my ceremony perfect Rabbi.
