I cannot possibly say enough good things about Rabbi Block. He lets you plan exactly what you want for the wedding, and is incredibly helpful in the process. He put our guests at ease, and was a delight to work with. Like most of the weddings he does, ours was an interfaith wedding, and the way he weaved our faiths together was amazing. We were able to have a ceremony that didn't tiptoe around our differences, and allowed us to express the most important parts of each of our weddings, while keeping our families happy and comfortable, not an easy task when our families included very religious Jews and evangelical Christians. So many compliments I received at the wedding were of the Rabbi. If you're having a non-traditional wedding, I could not recommend Rabbi Block strongly enough.
My husband and I are two different faiths (Christian and Jewish) and Rabbi Block was able to give us a fantastic ceremony that incorporated both faiths without alienating any of our guests. We were thrilled.
Due to some crazy timing before the wedding, my (now) husband and I were still working on the ceremony on the Wednesday before our Sunday ceremony. Rabbi Block was calm and helpful, giving us guidance, but allowing us to work out the pieces of the ceremony ourselves. This was a little stressful for my husband, but I found the freedom, well freeing. He reminded us that the ceremony was what we wanted it to be and not to ask permission for certain readings, but to feel confident in our choices. This was wonderful. We initially sent Rabbi Block a ceremony that was too short and he gave us a bunch of suggestions and ideas. We ended up with something that reflected both of our faiths and our views on marriage.
On the day of the wedding Rabbi Block arrived early and was very helpful and calming. He read the ceremony as we had written it, but also added in some lightness that made the ceremony and the day better. We told him we wanted something somewhat informal and fun and he had us all laughing. His calm presence and demeanor allowed us to take in the moment without worrying about an officiant who would make the ceremony about them or push any agenda. Due to the wind, our chuppa had a mind of its own. Rabbi Block worked with my brother-in-law to have the chuppa brought in during the ceremony, rather than have it free standing and it was beautiful.
People were approaching us after the ceremony saying how they loved Rabbi Block, how lovely the ceremony was and that it really reflected our personalities. Exactly what we wanted. Rabbi Block made it happen. I would highly recommend him and his services.
