READ THE FAQs

The Jewish wedding ceremony is beautiful with its customs. Your wedding ceremony is a memorable moment for when you both sign the Ketubah and recite your Hebrew wedding vows with the Rabbi's assistance, to each other under the Chuppah wedding canopy. It is that moment you stand under the Chuppah receiving G-d’s blessings and drinking from the Kiddush cup as one. Both of you will feel the connection of the Jewish wedding traditions that go back to Ancient Times

She personalized our ceremony to include our passion for the outdoors. Guests told us it sounded like she knew us for years. We received many many compliments on the ceremony. We felt comfortable with Rabbi Andrea Frank from the moment we met her. Highly recommended. Thank you Rabbi! -Jodi and Barry

I cannot recommend Rabbi Andrea Frank enough - I could honestly write a lot, but in short she was there every step of the way. She had loads of tips that were extremely helpful and made the process extremely easy. She helped out in ways I did not think an officiant/Rabbi was able. In terms of religious ceremony, it felt incredible. The traditions were all explained well, especially to those involved who did not know details. Rabbi Andrea Frank is a wonderful person and Rabbi - you are in great hands!

Rabbi Andrea was the best! I had a difficult time finding a rabbi for our Hudson Valley Wedding. I was looking for a Rabbi that gave me a warm, youthful and fun feeling for our ceremony and she did just that! Rabbi Andrea was so helpful from start to finish...she was very thorough with explaining everything, we met for coffee and chatted over google chat. She really made sure to put all those special touches we wanted in our ceremony. For our ceremony, Rabbi Andrea explained everything for our guests, personalized everything, and really tailored our ceremony to us including our personal story. All our guests Jewish, and not, loved our ceremony ..it was truly BEAUTIFUL thanks to Rabbi Andrea.

It was the most beautiful day of my life. I have known Rabbi Andrea Frank for a while and I've heard a lot about her wonderful work as a wedding officiant and I was looking for someone to help me with my wedding to make it more special. Rabbi Andrea wrote our wedding ceremony. Unfortunately she was booked that day already and we couldn't have her in person for the wedding but she showed up beautifully in her amazing writing. Rabbi Andrea interviewed us beforehand asking a lot of questions about our relationship and our personalities to make the ceremony our own and unique. Yes, there where teas of emotions during the wedding but also happy laughter and our guests loved it.
Rabbi Andrea suggested that we can chose to be surprised and not to know the words of the ceremony before the wedding. So she worked with our family friend who was officiating the ceremony to make it a best fit for us. We fully trusted Rabbi Andrea and because of that our wedding day was even more special. We felt like that was truly our own and unique wedding. We saved a copy of that ceremony as a great memory of that day. Thank you Rabbi Andrea for such a beautiful work and for putting your heart to it. We are forever grateful.

From the start Rabbi Andrea was so helpful and kind and made both me and my wife feel special. She tailored our service to both of our traditions and made our wedding unique and amazing. She will go out of her way meeting you in person or having a special meeting via Skype. This helped us tremendously as we lived in another state. I would recommend Rabbi Andrea to anyone I know that's having a New York wedding. Thanks Rabbi!

Rabbi Andrea Frank was absolutely amazing! We were referred to her from a friend who attended a wedding she officiated. Our family was hesitant at first hearing we were using a rabbi we had never met but after seeing the ceremony they agreed she was absolute perfection. She was super accommodating for our meetings, allowing us to video conference, when we could not meet in person. She helped walk us through all the steps of the ceremony and getting our license through the state. We had so many guests come up to us during the cocktail hour and tell us how much the loved the ceremony and how it seemed like the Rabbi knew us for years. I would highly recommend using Rabbi Andrea for your wedding! We hope to keep in touch with her in the future :)

My wife and I were in a pickle: we were getting married and we wanted a wedding conducted in a traditional, but not religious way. We also wanted a rabbi who would display a personal connection to us throughout the ceremony, but since neither of us are religious, we didn't have a rabbi who knew us. We interviewed several rabbis and weren't comfortable with any of them. It was looking more and more like we'd have to go the judge route, which my finance (at the time, now my wife) did not want.

Then, we met with Rabbi Andrea Frank. By the end of our first meeting, we had bonded in a way that it seemed like we've known her for years. We found her friendly, charming and so easy to talk to, Of course, we hired her right away and she scheduled another meeting, as well as phone meetings with each of us. It turned out these meetings were about getting to know us as much as discussing the process and procedures for the ceremony. We both liked Rabbi Andrea a lot...but the best was yet to come...

Our ceremony took place and Rabbi Andrea opened with a sermon that gave an impression to all of our guests (including our surprised families) that she had known us all our lives. I can honestly say that Rabbi Andrea kept the entire room enthralled and hanging on her every word which led to huge applause as she pronounced us husband and wife. "Your parents have been waiting a long time to hear this," she stated before making the declaration, and boy, was she right about that.

Planning a wedding can be time consuming and stressful. However, Rabbi Andrea truly made at least this part of the experience stress free and enjoyable.

She did such a great job, I'd almost consider getting married again just so I could have the Rabbi Andrea experience all over again. However, since I fully expect this marriage to work out, I won't get another opportunity. But, would I recommend Rabbi Andrea to another couple looking for a rabbi for their marriage? Yes, yes and YES!!

Rabbi Andrea was a delight to work with! From the very first phone call, we knew that we had found the right Rabbi for us. She was so open and friendly and really easy to talk to. She was great at giving us some structure to the Jewish ceremony, and then allowing us to customize it to make it meaningful to us. We got married in New Orleans and blended some of the traditional New Orleans wedding pieces with the Jewish ceremony that both families (one Jewish, one not) really connected to. We couldn't recommend her more highly! Thank you so much Rabbi Andrea!

Rabbi Andrea was the PERFECT rabbi for our ceremony. Our initial officiant fell through and we contacted her about a month and a half prior to our event and she was able to meet with us quickly and was extremely accommodating. She understood 100% what we wanted in our ceremony and asked all the right questions to make the ceremony extremely personal and fun. She not only provided standard officiant services, she really explained traditions, customs, etc. to us and let us choose which ones we wanted to incorporate. From the first time we met, my husband and I could tell that she really cares about her couples and takes pride in getting to know them, marrying them, as well as staying in touch after the big day. I would recommend Rabbi Andrea to anyone looking for a truly fun and personal wedding ceremony!
