My husband and I got married a couple weeks ago in Miami, FL. I've been to a lot of weddings and I'm not saying this because it's my wedding, but the ceremony that he peformed was the best I have ever experienced! He took the time to incorporate personal touches to our ceremony, such as my deceased grandmother's prayer shawl, he referenced our dogs, and he talked about the similarities between Judaism and Christianity. We had a Jewish Wedding but half of our guests were not jewish and did not understand the Jewish traditions. Rabbi Silver explained the wedding traditions and per our guests, they didn't feel lost. Our family and friends really appreciated that. Since our wedding, we have received multiple compliments about Rabbi Silver. I highly recommend him!

Rabbi Barry preformed the ceremony of my son and daughter-in-law, June 11, 2011. I can't begin to explain how happy I was with the ceremony. Rabbi Barry was very sensitive to the extremely diverse group, Jews, Catholics, Whites, Blacks and Hispanics. He was amazing! He explained our traditions in a lovely, caring way. To me and my family Judaism plays an extremely important role. I did realize that it was the kids wedding but as we all do I hoped to have instilled a love of Judaism to my children. The bride does understand the importance of our religion. I wanted her family to feel comfortable too. Rabbi Barry thought of everything from incorporating talking about our "other" family members, the dogs, to the Ketuba and the Motzi. He made my 85 year old, very traditional father feel comfortable and very happy. My Father was in his glory saying the Motzi and cutting the Challah as he does weekly. The Bride's Mother and other relatives, especially her Aunt, thought it was the best ceremony ever!! Her Aunt is ready to convert. I can't say enough wonderful things about the way in which Rabbi Barry performed the ceremony.
