Rabbi Andrea Frank is an Ordained Reform Rabbi. She is approachable and reachable. It will be her honor to officiate your joyous Simcha, your wedding ceremony. Rabbi Andrea Frank is registered with the New York City County Clerk’s office and have the authority to sign your New York State Marriage License.

The Jewish wedding ceremony is beautiful with its customs with its order of the ceremony. Your wedding ceremony is a memorable moment for when you both sign the Ketubah and recite Hebrew vows to each other under the Chuppah. When you stand under the Chuppah receiving God’s blessings and drinking from the Kiddush cup, both of you will feel the connection of the wedding traditions that are over 2,000 years old.

For Jewish couples, interfaith couples, ALL couples - if one or both of you are Jewish, then I will be happy to officiate your wedding. Respecting a couple's commitnment to Judaism, no matter how little or how much, as their one faith and agree to raise children Jewish is what makes this Rabbi more than happy to officiate a couple's Jewish Wedding Ceremony. Sorry, I do not co-officiate.

If neither of you are Jewish and are seeking a non-religious civil ceremony, this Rabbi can assist. Non-religious is simple - NOT acknowledging either faith. No religious customs will be acknowledged in the ceremony. However, there is always room to add a few if they are important to you as a couple. Remember, with the Authority to sign your Marriage License makes you Legally Married. Why would you ask a clergy person to be your officiant for a Civil Wedding? Simply, because you want the care and thoughtfulness to a moment that unites the two of you in marriage.

Available to officiate your wedding ceremony in all locations i.e. reception halls, indoors or outdoors, restaurants, private homes, parks, beaches, museums and destinations. Serving the tri-state area; New York, Westchester County, Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, New Jersey, Connecticut. Destination weddings can be arranged as well.

Civil Union, Interfaith Ceremony, Non-religious Ceremony, Single Religion Ceremony
What religious affiliations do you serve?

Can you accommodate the hearing impaired?
Yes
Are you willing to perform a ceremony at a non-religious site?
Yes. A Chuppah can be set up anywhere and so a Jewish Wedding ceremony can take place inside and outside.
What is your attire for the ceremony?
For a Jewish Wedding Ceremony; black robe with Tallit
Are you flexible in the wording used throughout the ceremony, including the vows?
The Jewish Wedding Ceremony order and text is beautiful, but all depends on each couple and their wishes.
Do you allow the couple to write their own vows, if desired?
Yes, and is optional. I will offer to read them as well if both of you are very nervous and too emotional that day.
Do you have a list of readings pre-selected, from which the couple must choose?
Not really, but suggestions. As I get to know each couple, I work with most requests and where to fit them properly into the Jewish Wedding ceremony order.
How long are your ceremonies?
A Jewish Wedding Ceremony is about 30 minutes
 A Civil, Non-Religious Ceremony is 20 minutes.

Pre-marital counseling: only if requested. It would be best to have a pre-ceremony meeting(s). How many? It depends on the time frame for the date of each couples wedding day.
Are you willing to perform pre-ceremony rehearsals?
Yes, but Jewish weddings do not usually have rehearsals. If the venue for the ceremony allows pre-ceremony rehearsals, then I will be more than happy to be available.

We did not know Rabbi Frank before our wedding. And the first time the groom met her was via Skype. But she has the kind of warmth after the first meeting, on a computer or in person, you feel like you have known her for years. From our first meeting to our ceremony we could not have been happier with Rabbi Frank. She met with us on multiple occasions and was available over the phone anytime. She answered all of our questions and went through everything in great detail to make sure things went smoothly. She made our ceremony special and unique. She allowed us to make the ceremony our own, within the customs and traditions of Reform Judaism of course. It was the perfect ceremony from beginning to end in large part thanks to Rabbi Frank.

My husband and I were SO fortunate to have had Rabbi Andrea Frank officiate our wedding. From our first meeting with her, until the time she met us under the Chuppah, Rabbi Andrea guided us every step of the way with her genuine warmth, compassion and kindness. She took the time to get to know us as a couple - and as individuals - and that reflected beautifully in the heartfelt, one-of-a-kind ceremony she performed (ALL of our wedding guests are still raving about her!!!). We loved every single second of working with Rabbi Andrea and look forward to having her for many more future family events!

One word - awesome. Rabbi Andrea was professional and organized, and also warm and personal. She guided us on the things we needed for our Chuppah, and and the ceremony itself was in line with both tradition and our own preferences, and special requests. She answered all our questions, whether during personal meetings or on the phone or email. She followed up on our progress in obtaining the necessary objects and documents, so that everything is in place.

Thank you, Rabbi Andrea, for making our ceremony special!

We were so blessed to have found Rabbi Andrea to officiate our Ceremony. She spent a lot of time guiding us through the process and really got to know us and our family, and that came through in our Ceremony. She was so professional and still so warm, it was like she'd known our families for years. She found beautiful ways to personalize our Ceremony and made our family and friends feel so included. She came up with the perfect special customizations to bring everyone together to share in our love, while still honoring our Jewish heritage and we look forward to having her as our Family Rabbi.

We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Rabbi Andrea Frank. During the course of preparation for our destination wedding, she was organized, professional, extremely responsive and prepared. When we got to our wedding day, she delivered a beautiful ceremony that all of our friends and family loved. Rabbi Andrea even went out of her way to write a meaningful short poem about us and had the most thoughtful gift made for us which she shared in front of everyone. If you are looking to have a rabbi who makes your ceremony one to remember, she is the one to choose. We would be happy to endorse her for anyone looking for a rabbi.

What a wonderful experience we had with Rabbi Andrea. From the first time we talked to her, she was warm and compassionate, and eager to make sure our wedding ceremony was personalized to reflect our beliefs and tastes. As we spoke with her in the weeks prior to our wedding, Rabbi Andrea was always calming and reassuring, and answered all of our questions about Jewish wedding ceremonies in a way we could understand, without any judgment at all. She's also extremely well organized, with a prepared checklist of decisions we'd need to make regarding the ceremony, and any items we'd need to buy ahead of time. She worked hand-in-hand with our wedding planner, too, and that took any stress out of the equation. After the wedding, everybody told us how beautiful the ceremony had been, and how fantastic the Rabbi had been in creating a welcoming, love-filled tone for the event.

I can't say enough good things about Rabbi Andrea Frank. She made our wedding ceremony so special and really captured the essence of who we are. She made the process easy, fun and educational. She was flexible in including the things that we found important, educated us on the things we needed to know and found a way to seamlessly and beautifully weave our families into the entire process and ceremony. You should feel a deep sense of relief and a strong faith that with Rabbi Andrea Frank as your officiant, the experience will be one-of-a-kind, filled with love and she will honor your most important wishes and dreams.

Rabbi Andrea is the best! She worked with us to create the most gorgeous wedding ceremony. She helped us include all our family members into the ceremony. My grandparents had recently passed and she was able to incorporate them so beautifully into the service. So many family and friends have complimented me on her ceremony. Rabbi Andrea made herself so available to us, always promptly returning emails and calls. She sat down with us and really explained all the wedding traditions, their meanings and then tailored the ceremony to exactly what we wanted. Rabbi Andrea helped make our special day extra special.

I am Jewish but my Fiance is not, however he does not have a specific religion and we are planning on having a Jewish home and Jewish children and wanted a Jewish wedding. And even though that was the case we had a very hard time finding a Rabbi who would marry us. When I finally found one who said he would do it, he made us feel bad about it, and was asking us to jump through a lot of hoops. Then I found Rabbi Andrea Frank. She was terrific from the very beginning. Instead of making us feel like we had to convince her to marry us, she was all about telling us what she could do for us. We were off to a great start! She was completely open minded and really understanding. My husband is Vietnamese and she was open to trying to incorporate his culture if we wanted to. She was extremely organized and gave us a checklist of everything we would need to do leading up to the wedding. This was EXTREMELY helpful. My original concern about finding a Rabbi online was that the rabbi wouldn't know us and it would be impersonal. Rabbi Frank completely dispelled my fear. Even though we weren't in the same state as her and couldn't meet in person, we met via Skype and had several meetings leading up to the wedding. She got to know us as a couple, and when we finally met her the day before the wedding we felt as though we were greeting an old friend. She incorporated a lot of personal stories and sentiments in to our ceremony. It was not cookie cutter, she tailored the ceremony to us. I loved our ceremony and it could not have been more perfect. I have already recommended Rabbi Frank to a friend of mine and she is also using her, so I would definitely recommend Rabbi Frank to anyone! Feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions.

Her professionalism and organizational skills are exceptional, and she was very flexible and accommodating to our needs. We received a ton of praise from family and guests on the ceremony, and couldn't be happier with how smoothly everything went!

Seeing before me two people in love celebrating 20 years of marriage with a spark in their eyes as if it was 20 years ago when they first stood under the Chuppah. It is a beautiful Love Story and I was honored to be chosen as I provided G-d's Blessings for their extra special Wedding Anniversary with a Renewal of their Vows.

We were lucky in love and in finding a Rabbi who would travel from NY to DR for our dream destination wedding! Rabbi Andrea Frank was fantastic in making our wedding day memorable and special. Rabbi Frank worked diligently to include our family and loved ones who have passed in the ceremony by mentioning their qualities and characteristics making the ceremony intimate and personal. She worked with us months in advance on getting to know our personalities and our vision for our wedding. One of the most important elements in working with Rabbi Frank is that she kept the ceremony as religious (or traditional) as we wanted. There was no pressure to do more or less (religiously/symbolically). She had a checklist in place and helped us obtain all of the symbolic materials for our ceremony in addition to keeping us on our tight schedule. We had many questions and were able to contact her via email with any questions and felt comfortable doing so. Her help in obtaining vows for our Ketubbah were insightful and helpful.

Since we had a destination wedding we got married legally in NY 1 week prior to our wedding in DR. Rabbi Frank kept us in the know about where and how to obtain our wedding license and sent out for the certificate immediately (we received our certificate within a week). Our legal wedding was kept low key but was very special and Rabbi helped make it happen.

In addition to the legal wedding, the rehearsal ceremony was spearheaded by Rabbi Frank (which was great since our coordinator hadn’t had much experience in Jewish weddings). On the day of the wedding Rabbi Frank was always on the look out to make sure the chuppa secured and afloat, found a way to crush the glass in the sand, ensured our guests could hear the ceremony and made sure our bridal party walked and stood where they should (among many other things). She was a pleasure to work with and we are very happy with our experience in working with her.

Rabbi Andrea was absolutely amazing! She met with us twice before the wedding, but would have met with us as many times as we needed. Below is the email I sent to the rabbi to thank her - and we meant every word. :)

Dear Rabbi -

Thank you so, so much for everything! People were still talking about the ceremony today. Mike's mother said that you spoke about us like you had known us for years. It really was such a beautiful ceremony.

This morning I suddenly panicked and asked Mike what happened to the marriage license. He of course told me that you were taking care of it - which I should have known, because you completely took care of us along the way. Thank you so much for all the care and time you took with us! You made our wedding so special - not just to us, but to all our guests as well.

Love,
Lynn and Mike

My husband and I had the distinct honor of having Rabbi Andrea as an Officiant at our wedding. From the very beginning of the process, she made a huge effort to get to know us and was extremely professional throughout. Our meetings with her consisted of just the right balance of education (my husband is not Jewish) and fun. In addition, she was more on top of things than even we were and remembered things when we didn't.

She performed a lovely ceremony and personalized it to us and the guests are still raving about it.

If you hire Rabbi Andrea to be the Officiant at your wedding not only will you have a wonderful ceremony customized to you and your level of comfort, you will enjoy your face-to-face meetings and communication with her. To sum it up, she is awesome.

Rabbi Andrea is the absolute BEST! Having met Rabbi Andrea at my brother and sister-in-law's wedding in 2011, I experienced first-hand the beautiful ceremony that she conducted. When I got engaged, I knew right away that I wanted the same experience for myself and my husband-to-be. I was elated that not only was Rabbi Andrea was available for my wedding date, but she was willing to travel to Philadelphia to be with us for our wedding weekend. In planning for the wedding, Rabbi Andrea was flexible, prompt, thoughtful, creative, and extremely thorough. Soon after our engagement, Rabbi Andrea came to meet us in NYC, where we chatted and planned and had a great time. As the wedding got closer, we had a few skype meetings in which we accomplished a great deal, brainstormed, and had a few laughs! Throughout our year and a half engagement, Rabbi Andrea kept in frequent contact with us through email. Rabbi Andrea is extremely organized and is always prepared with check-lists and fabulous ideas. Whenever I had a question, Rabbi Andrea was truly just an email away, always providing a thorough and timely response to my concerns. I truly appreciated that Rabbi Andrea made it as important to her as it was to me that she included all of our family members in the wedding ceremony in some special way. It was important to my husband and I that our late grandfathers were acknowledged, and it touched our hearts (and many others) when our grandmothers' presented items to us that belonged to our grandfathers, during the ceremony. As promised, Rabbi Andrea conducted a ceremony that was memorable in so many ways. Not only is Rabbi Andrea a fabulous Rabbi, she is also a sweet, warm and loving person that I feel so lucky to know. Thank you!!!

She truly is completely genuine and makes your special day very memorable. Everyone is still telling us how beautiful our ceremony was!!! We are Mexican, columbian, and Russian Jewish so we had a serious mix of people. Every person raved about our ceremony and how much they adored the rabbi. Honoring us with she and her husbands presence as guests as well was wonderful. She accepted our invitation and talked and danced with so many people who fell just as in love with her as we did. Rabbi Andrea is very special and I would recommend her to everyone no matter what your faith or beliefs.

Rabbi Andrea conducted an interfaith wedding ceremony for my husband and I. It was a small destination wedding in Cancun Mexico. Our ceremony was on the while sand right next to turquoise waters. We didn't have much luck with weather and everyone got wet during the ceremony. Rain didn't spoil anything one bit on the contrary our ceremony was whimsical and romantic. However I still would like to thank Rabbi Andrea and the rest of my wedding party/attendants for enduring getting wet.

Service: Rabbi Andrea truly loves what she does. I think it's number one important factor in hiring anyone. She is passionate about Jewish faith and marriage. She worked closely with us to create our personal, custom, ceremony. And that made it a truly unforgettable one.

Responsiveness: Unless there's a religious holiday or she's out on a job, expect to hear from her within a day if not within hours. Whether it's an email, phone, or even a video chat she's there for you. (Also, expect to hear from her again and again if you don't follow up with her on stuff she needs.. lol. )

Professionalism: Excellent, as I mentioned before, you will not need to worry about not being able to be in touch. She is also very pleasant and lovable. It's a pleasure to see her. She's constantly smiling. She was punctual and nicely dressed for all events.

Value: A destination officiant may not come very cheap. We interviewed a few before we made out choice. I can tell you, that I couldn't be happier with anyone else. Her fee's are reasonable. Her value is tremendous. She spent hours and hours with us on the phone and video chat. Sent probably close to 50 emails. Once we were in Cancun, she was readily available for any questions and concerns, conducted a rehearsal, coordinated with the wedding planner, and much much more...

Flexibility: My husband is Jewish, I'm Christian. I was very important for me to represent my roots as well. I think Rabbi Andrea was very reasonable with my concerns. I wanted to stand on the left side, wanted to place a ring on a ring finger(we had two sets of rings- beautiful!), sand ceremony, st francis reading... all done. Also during the ceremony, Rabbi refrained from referring to Jewish religion only. The ceremony was very, very beautiful. Guests loved it. With all that being said, if I were to do it again I would want two officiants.

I had to give a 5 across the board for Rabbi Andrea Frank. I planned my wedding literally in 2 weeks. She always responded to me extremely fast, was so patient and answered all of my questions. Rabbi Andrea guided my husband and I in every way possible - we had a Skype date the week of the wedding and she walked us through what to expect with our ceremony. Being an interfaith couple, I knew I wanted a Jewish ceremony and Rabbi Andrea was super open to that, which I am incredibly thankful for. She left some beautiful and touching surprises for the ceremony that she didn't tell us about but assured us they would be wonderful. That held true! She made my 25 guests all feel a part of the wedding. Thank you Rabbi for such an unforgettably amazing wedding ceremony!

Rabbi Andrea not only officiated our wedding but also provided guidance when we had a shocking death in our wedding party. We decided the wedding would go on as planned. Little did we know, our wedding happened to be on the Saturday of Hurricane Irene and when most other vendors cancelled Rabbi Andrea did not. She showed up on time to a makeshift ceremony in our hotel suite. Numerous amount of guests came up to me and said it was their most favorite ceremony, so thoughtful and so intimate.
Thanks again Rabbi Andrea!

There are not enough good words to express the phenomenal job that Rabbi Andrea did for our recent wedding. We have been to weddings before but have never heard such a meaningful and touching ceremony performed by ANY rabbi. We chose Rabbi Andrea from this website and after talking to her the first time her love and sensitivity shines through. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, kind and caring and very on top of things. She kept us on our toes and was very supportive during the months prior to our wedding. The amount of time and effort that she put into our wedding plans was amazing and was clearly evident at the ceremony. She made everyone feel a part of a very moving ceremony that involved many of our family members partaking in portions of it. All of our guests continue to talk about what a great job she did, they;ve never been to another ceremony like it and we feel so priveledged that she was part of our special day. If you are lucky enough to find Rabbi Andrea available, grab her, because she is really the best!!!!

The whole experience was a delight to plan. Technology connects not only miles away, but continents away! Seeing the couple's beaming smiles, embracing each other under the Chuppah as they Renewed their Vows once again was memorable. Thank you for the honor to bless you both Under the Chuppah and sharing this special moment in both your lives with family. All my best, Rabbi Andrea

We couldn't have found anyone better to officiate our wedding!

From the very beginning, Rabbi Frank worked with us to explain and teach us the customs of our ceremony. Her help, responsiveness, and attention to every detail were second to none!

Everyone who attended our wedding were so impressed with her, things could not have gone any better!! Thank you so much Rabbi Andrea, you made our day so very special =)

We found Rabbi Andrea by searching for destination wedding Rabbi's in the NY area - this way she could officiate our civil ceremony as well. We spoke to a few area Rabbi's before meeting Rabbi Andrea and instantly we knew by the way she spoke and gave us information that this was going to be a good fit. She is very flexible yet traditional with the ceremony and we were able to really make our destination wedding ceremony our own with her. She really got to know our families over the course of the year and by the time the wedding came around, she wasn't just our Rabbi but also a part of our family.
It was easy meeting with her either in NYC, Westchester or online via Ichat. She provided a lot of guidance to us and had the answers to all of the questions we had.
For the ceremony, she really personalized it for us and also added her own twist by helping us incorporate our dog who was not able to travel overseas for the wedding - it was a great surprise while under the Chuppah!
It was truely a pleasure working with Rabbi Andrea and we will definitely keep in touch with her and most likely contact her in the future for our baby namings and other milestone events.

Rabbi Andrea brought so much personalization and thought to our ceremony. We were married almost a month ago and people are still telling my husband and I what an amazing ceremony it was. Rabbi Andrea took the time to get to know us and guide us through this spiritual process. If you are looking for a Rabbi who is not afraid to add some humor to your day, look no further. If you are looking for a solemn and traditional ceremony, look no further. Rabbi Andrea is flexible and open to suggestions and preferences. I know that Rabbi Andrea will be a part of our lives for many years to come.

Rabbi Andrea created a service that my guests are still raving about... she took the time to get to know my husband and I and didn't just "plug us in" to a textbook ceremony.

She educated us on the religious aspects of the ceremony while allowing our day to truly reflect our love for each other.....

She is highly recommended for anyone who wants a wedding that's uniquely their own!!!

Rabbi Andrea was AMAZING! She was a part of my wedding planning from the day I met her until after the wedding was over. I received so many complements from friends and family about how much they enjoyed the ceremony. She was able to engage everyone from those who have never been to a Jewish ceremony to those who have been to a million. I feel like I also gained a life-long friend in the process. I look forward to sharing many more happy occasions with Rabbi Andrea.

We met a few times in person and talked on the phone. She is very nice, professional, and a wonderful rabbi.

Rabbi Andrea was our wedding officiant. She is AWESOME! She travelled all the way to Canada to perform our cermony. Rabbi Andrea made our dreams come true. We don't know what we would have done without her. All of our guests said how beautiful our ceremony was and that it was by far the best that they have seen. Our wedding day was so special and thanks to Rabbi Andrea we knew that we had nothing to worry about. She truly went out of her way to accomidate us and we are extremely appreciative of her. Rabbi Andrea is on the ball with everything and so kind and caring. She will double and triple check everything to make sure it is right. This is the Rabbi that you want for you special day. Thanks so much Rabbi Andrea. You will forever be our Rabbi.
Our love,
Alan and Rajka

Rabbi Andrea Frank was incredibly helpful in answering every one of my questions during the entire planning process. She met with us several times and kept in touch via e-mail and phone calls to make sure we were on track with things we needed to get done. The ceremony was exactly what we had asked for, and we are still hearing compliments from our guests that this was one of the most entertaining and enjoyable ceremonies they had ever attended. It was so important to us that our non-Jewish guests didn't feel uncomfortable, and no one got bored from a lengthy ceremony. Rabbi Andrea translated all of the Hebrew, and was so entertaining and funny we could not believe that it was over so quickly. She gave us the perfect combination of a traditional Jewish ceremony, incorporated with some laughs. I am happy we have continued to keep in touch even after the ceremony, and would highly recommend her with no reservations!

I cannot rave enough about Rabbi Andrea and what a pleasure it was getting to know her and what a special job she did officiating our wedding. Virtually every guest complimented her service. Rabbi Andrea is patient, warm, attentive, personable and professional. We appreciated her counsel and the time she spent getting to know us as a couple. This resulted in a wedding poem that she created about us and the delivery during the ceremony was a special surprise that we really enjoyed. I rather expected to get married by a stranger...but having Rabbi Andrea there was more like being married by a friend. I would recommend her services to anyone.

My husband and I found Rabbi Andrea's services by way of an Internet search, and despite this unorthordox way of finding an officiant, her service was anything but. She was extremely respectiful of both families concerns, yet made the service entirely tailored to what we wanted as a couple. She made the Jewish aspects of the ceremony simple to follow, while still being meaningful to us, our family and our guests. She never spoke down or lectured, and got to know us well enough through the process that she was also able to make the ceremony very personal.

She also was very willing to travel, very open and honest about the fees to do so, and, in general, made the process extremely easy--something a bride with many things on her mind finds very refreshing.

Overall, I would highly recommend Rabbi Andrea, whether or not you happen to be in the NY area.

I was continuously impressed by her prompt response to any of our attempts to contact her, her perpetually sunny attitude, and her eagerness to accomodate our requests. My husband is Jewish and I am not, and Rabbi Andrea made us both feel equally comfortable and included in the process. Her ceremony was so funny and unexpected that I laughed out loud during it! No one will ever forget our ceremony! I have recommended Rabbi Andrea to every interfaith couple I know.

Rabbi Andrea Frank performed the ceremony for myself, Albert and my wife, Andrea. She was a great help through the process and detail orientated. She did her best to make things clear and facilitate an easy process. Highlights of our time include the custom chuppah we were able to make with her that was a lovely embroided pattern. Rabbi Andrea Frank was kind, patient and a funny orator where she was able to work a funny joke in at the end.

Rabbi Andrea,

Danny and I would like to Thank You for absolutely everything you did to make our wedding and ceremony incredibly memorable, poignant and meaningful to us, our families and close friends. It felt as though you have known us for a lifetime and from the first moment we met, your sentimentality, thoughtfulness and warmth brought me to tears. Being married on our parents 50th wedding anniversary was a true blessing. Having you there officiating and guiding us through the process was an honor and a pleasure. We are looking forward to sharing many more milestones with you as our Rabbi and friend...

All the Best Always!

Rabbi Frank was excellent. My husband and I have received so many comments on the personal touches she put into our ceremony. In addition to doing two ceremonies for us (one small, one large) she also did a surprise vow renewal ceremony for my grandparents, complete with a new ketubah. She made our wedding day special not only for us, but for both of our families as well. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to do a Jewish or interfaith ceremony.

My fiance' Rob and I found ourselves in the vulnerable position of having to find another officiant nine weeks before our wedding. To futher complicate matters, a close family member was seriously ill. Rabbi Frank returned my query immediately and was eager to help. We were instantly won over by her warmth, compassion and professionalism She took time to get to know us as a couple, not only corresponding via email and phone, but meeting with us on multiple occasions. She worked with us to customize our ceremony and was sensitive to our needs. When our loved-one's health took a turn for the worst Rabbi Frank provided guidance to our family - going well above and beyond the usual duties of a wedding officiant. When she conducted the ceremony it was not only a true reflection of our values but genuinely personal and intimate. Our guests are still commenting on how beautiful they felt it was. Rob and I now consider Rabbi Frank part of the family and we look forward to celebrating all life's occasions with her.

I was really worried about finding a Rabbi that would marry an interfaith couple. Rabbi Andrea was outstanding. Our ceremony was incredible. There was so much meaning in everything she did. She really took the time to get to know who we were and what was important to us. The end result was a moving, emotional, and very unique ceremony. We received compliments from the non-Jewish side of the family. She really explained everything she did so it wasn't just understood by the Jewish side of the family. My great great grandmother's wedding ring has been used in every wedding on my mother's side since she was married. There is also a Bible everyone has carried. She explained the importance of everything we used. It really was an incredible ceremony. I would highly recommend Rabbi Andrea to anyone!

Rabbi Andrea was wonderful! I am Jewish and my husband is not and Rabbi Andrea was so understanding and patient - she taught us both the traditions of a Jewish ceremony and respected our decisions for what to include and exclude from our own service. She truly individualizes each ceremony and our guests knew that she really tried to get to know us.

Rabbi Andrea wrote a wonderful ceremony for us and many of our guests told us that it was the most personal and beautiful ceremony they had ever been to. She gave us wonderful advise that made all the difference, especially telling us not to share any our personal vows with anyone. She included many special moments to our ceremony that had both us and our guests laughing and crying.

We can't wait to see our wedding video so that we can experience our wedding ceremony again. Thank you Rabbi Andrea!

She was also very willing to work with us on when and where to meet in the planning process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for a super sweet Rabbi!!

Rabbi Andrea's service was everything we could have hoped for and more. She listened, remained flexible and was very accessible to us. Everyone at the wedding commented on how beautiful it was to see how she incorporated our 6 children in the ceremony by having them each read a blessing. She also called up my father to wrap us in the tallit he wore at his own Bar Mitzvah. She was warm, yet professional. She surprised us with a poem that was very fitting. Although I think you may be able to find a Rabbi to marry you for less money, Rabbi Andrea has her own Chuppah which she brings with her. All in all, this was a fabulous experience.

The wedding was lovely and she was very pleasant and helpful throughout the process, checking in often, spending time discussing what to expect, and ensuring we were ready. The Rabbi added some of her own touches to the ceremony that were a little different than we expected, and we ran a little long. But she was very responsive, extremely flexible to do whatever we requested, friendly, informative and at a very fair price. Her husband was also very helpful with the setup and added a wonderful touch providing additional pictures!
