Weddings & Vow Renewals

Rabbi Gary Katz Reviews, Best Wedding Officiants in New York City - 2015 Couples' Choice Award Winner


Mazal tov!!!

Getting married is a very exciting time—full of plans, hope and love. I work with couples to make sure that their ceremony reflects who they are while adding a meaningful component to their special day. Together, we will learn what the different parts of the Jewish wedding ceremony mean so that you and your significant other can have a most meaningful ceremony as you begin the next stage of your lives together.

…he really made our ceremony so much more than we had hoped for.

I have performed many wedding ceremonies and I use my experience to help walk couples through the process—to clarify what each of them are imagining when they think of their wedding day.

I also have performed vow renewal ceremonies for couples who are already married but wish to celebrate and acknowledge their love for each other again by having a ceremony to renew and rededicate themselves to each other.

Levine WeddingRabbi Gary officiated our wedding ceremony in June 2012 and we could not have been happier with his services. He was warm, easy to talk to, and a great listener who took the time to get to know us, which was very much reflected on our special day. He carefully went over the significance of all of the traditions with us beforehand as well as the timing so we knew exactly what to expect, but he really made our ceremony so much more than we had hoped for. While we first met Gary several months before our wedding, his words about my husband and I as a couple were so intimate and touching, as if he had known us for years. He performed a beautiful Jewish ceremony in a way that people of all faiths could relate to and appreciate. He spoke with great clarity and a touch of humor that kept all of our guests captivated from start to finish. Many of our guests later told us that evening that it was the best ceremony they had ever been to. We can’t thank him enough for his services and could not recommend him more highly!
