Rabbi David Degani
We contacted Rabbi Degani after the Rabbi where we live refused to co-officiate at our wedding ceremony with a Catholic priest and instead presented us with the option of having two ceremonies. Rabbi Degani and his wife were absolutely lovely and were truly a breathe of fresh air after what we had been dealing with. We live on the West coast of Florida so they Skyped with us to make arrangements prior to our wedding. Prior to our wedding, Rabbi Degani worked with our local Deacon to construct our interfaith ceremony. In the end, our ceremony was absolutely beautiful and was more than we could have asked for. Rabbi brought along his wife (Cantor Lee) and her singing during the ceremony was absolutely wonderful. I cannot thank them enough for their services and for the flexibility and willingness to travel to be with us on our special day.
We loved Rabbi David and Cantor Lee so much!!! The ceremony was beautiful. Cantor Lee sang as I walked down the aisle and it was truly incredible. It was spiritual and fun and matched our personalities perfectly. All of our guests loved it. They brought a lovely Chuppah for us to use. They sent our marriage license in right away. I am so grateful I found them. Thank you!!
Rabbi Degani was very warm and extremely willing to work with us to create a ceremony that was special for both of us. He fully integrated the bride's family and customs into our interfaith ceremony. He was willing to travel more than 4-5 hours to officiate our wedding. We would highly recommend him for any interfaith ceremony!
Rabbi David and Cantor Lee performed a beautiful ceremony for my husband and I. My husband is Jewish and I am Muslim and he was able to guide me through traditions with any and all questions. They are both two warm, loving, and caring people who you can feel are very happy to be a part of your wedding. The ceremony was exactly what we asked for. Cantor Lee has a BEAUTIFUL voice - she sang some prayers and then Rabbi David would recite them and translate them.
Cantor Lee Degani was absolutley amazing! We were extremely satisfied with her and the ceremony she performed. She listened to each and everyone of our wishes and needs and really was able to capture the essence our love. She was very professional and completley shattered our expectations. She offered many great ideas, and solutions from the first time we met, until the very last hour. She was accurate, punctual and all our of our guests commented on how beautiful she made the ceremony. We would definitley recommend using this vendor ... I guarantee you will be satisfied!
Rabbi David was a great part of our wedding. Prior to the wedding, he sat down with us for as long as we wanted and helped us discuss and plan the ceremony. He was always responsive when we had follow-up questions. Most importantly, he officiated a wonderful ceremony. He was thoughtful and everyone enjoyed the ceremony. We also had an interfaith marriage and he was flexible and able to work closely with the minister.
Rabbi Degani and his wife, Cantor Lee, did an excellent job for us. They were extremely friendly and worked with us on all the details of our inter-faith wedding ceremony. They were willing to be flexible and work with a Catholic co-officiant in a most cooperative manner. Our ceremony was somewhat unconventional, taking place in a restaurant, and Rabbi Degani made everyone feel welcome. We would highly recommend Rabbi Degani for future couples planning their weddings, especially inter-faith couples.
Rabbi David Degani and Cantor Lee both made our wedding so special for us! They were recommended to us by friends in the Boca Raton area, and we highly recommend them for any occasion because they added such a warm and loving atmosphere to ours. Before our wedding, we met Rabbi David and Cantor Lee via Skype, and found them to be just amazing, so open and joyful. At our wedding, they brought a gorgeous blue velvet chuppah, plus their own microphone and amplifier. They made everything so easy and fun by allowing us to customize our ceremony, and then walking us through it as it happened. Our evening went perfectly, thank God, and we didn't even have a rehearsal!
There were family conflicts and a very difficult beginning with Catholic and Jewish traditions being at odds. Rabbi Degani was a terrific confidant, mediator and problem solver. He was right there when we needed him and with compassion and understanding. In the end it was a beautiful ceremony with Rabbi Degani and the priest working together and it looks like this union will end in a happily ever after. I truly appreciate all the Rabbi has done to satisfy all concerned. He really cared and it showed and it helped a lot.
My wedding would not have been the same without Rabbi David Degani. He was absolutely wonderful from the day I got in contact with him until the day of our wedding. He provided excellent service, especially as my husband is not Jewish.
We live in London, so we thought it may be difficult to maintain contact with a Rabbi in Miami, but Rabbi Degani was able to keep in contact via email, plus we had regular Skype meetings so we felt like we know each other before we got out to the US.
Before the ceremony we met Rabbi Degani and he was able to explain the service to my husband and his family (plus some of mine!)
Throughout the ceremony he explained what and why the certain Jewish traditions were which really made everyone feel like they were involved.
I cant thank Rabbi Degani enough for what a wonderful wedding I had. He really made it a magical day never to forget.
Rabbi David is an amazing person. So I am not Jewish but my husband is, and he and his family wanted a traditional Jewish wedding. Not the easiest thing to do! I found Rabbi David and from the beginning he was so helpful with making the ceremony exactly what my mother in law wanted for her only son, but also keeping in mind that it was our day and what we envisioned. He walked us threw every step of the process and even provided the beautiful chuppah. Him and his wife canter Lee did an amazing job at the ceremony. It truly was moving and spiritual and everyone was extremely happy. He is my first choice for a Rabbi and we will be using him when we have children.
My husband and I met Rabbi David and immediately clicked with his openness, honesty, clarity, and wisdom. He was not only there for us as a wedding officiant, but as an advisor. I don't belong to a synagogue right now and we were getting married away from home, so it meant a lot to me to find a rabbi that I could feel totally at ease with and have a connection to. And it meant a lot to my husband, who is not Jewish, to have an officiant that both inspired him and made him feel comfortable with a faith that he had not grown up in.
Having Cantor Lee there made the wedding so special. Her voice is magnificent and it was powerful to have a husband/wife team there to perform the ceremony.
Thank you so much Rabbi David and Cantor Lee! I highly recommend both.
Thanks to Rabbi David our wedding was wonderful, all our guest told me that the Rabbi spoke very beautiful to me and my wife.
He came to Mexico City to officate our wedding, and that not so many rabbis do that.
I 100% recommend Rabbi Degani to the officiate any event, I will contact him for future events from my family.
For our wedding he answered all the time our questions, and as a gitf to us the rabbi learned spanish, I don´t know where does he learned it but it was realy fluent.
Warm, open and just wonderful. The Rabbi and his wife were there for us every step of the way and performed a beautiful service that our guests absolutely loved.
