And as a special memento of your wedding, I provide a beautifully bound and decorated copy of the text of your ceremony to cherish. "Love one another, but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls." -Kahil Gibran (I also provide other important services for you and your family including baby namings and Memorial and Funeral Services.)
Rabbi David has performed two services for our family in the past 5 years. One for our son in 2014 and just recently for my daughter: In both cases my friends and family were still talking about how beautiful and meaningful the services were months after the wedding. Rabbi does an incredible service - personalizing it and adding meaning and depth to each nuptial. His easy style, clear voice and beautiful words carry the day!
Rabbi David Gelman put together and coordinated a personalized ceremony for our children's wedding. I have known the rabbi for some 15 years and he exceeded our already high expectations. His experience and sensitivity to everyone's needs was immediately evident and he made the process easy and uncomplicated. The ceremony was accessible to all, no matter their level of observance or familiarity with a Jewish wedding. It was a beautiful day and most important, it was FUN!
Rabbi David Gellman put together a wonderful, special, unique, personalized ceremony for my husband and I. He made space to incorporate all of the elements and people we wanted, and had no problem leaving out the components we didn't want included. Working with him ahead of time was easy and straightforward; he sent out questionnaires that helped us form our ideas and allowed him to get to know the type of ceremony we wanted. Our wedding was interfaith and this was no problem for Rabbi David; he made it as Jewish as we wanted and was sure to explain the customs so everyone could understand. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and I will cherish it always.
From the moment we met with Rabbi David, we knew we had found the one to lead our Interfaith ceremony. He made us feel comfortable and any worry we had about the ceremony was put aside when he walked us through the process with confidence and experience. Rabbi David went above and beyond to make our wedding ceremony absolutely perfect. He made the ceremony truly unique to reflect our needs by listening to our story and weaving it into the words he so beautifully wrote. He also incorporated both English and Hebrew and explained the meaning behind everything he did. Our family and friends can't say enough about how beautiful, in-depth and meaningful the ceremony was and how it was a true reflection of Jay and I. We feel very fortunate to have found Rabbi David!
Rabbi David Gellman created a truly unique and heartfelt ceremony that really captured us as a couple and resonated with our interfaith guests. He really put a great deal of thought and care to personalize the service with our stories, inside jokes and little details of our lives together. We decided not to have a wedding party but wanted to honour our family and closest friends during the ceremony. Rabbi Gellman helped to facilitate this by suggesting special ways within the ceremony to incorporate each them. We couldn’t be happier!
