ABOUT ME

Rabbi Larry creates memorable ceremonies which are sensitive to the needs of those he serves while honoring the unique aspects of every situation. Each ceremony he officiates at is personalized for the individual family.

When Rabbi Larry meets with you his goal, after getting to know you as individuals and as a couple, is to learn about your vision of your wedding ceremony. He will want you to share your vision of what the ceremony will look like, what customs and rituals you want included, adapted or left behind. Your vision will shape the ceremony and Rabbi Larry will help you to make it a reality.

Your wedding ceremony will be the beautiful, meaningful and personal moment you want it to be and Rabbi Larry will make sure it fulfills your hopes and dreams.

That is my commitment to you, your family and your friends.

Rabbi Larry will guide you through all of the Jewish wedding rituals and beautifully blend in interfaith beliefs along the way.

Rabbi Larry has worked with many Jewish & Interfaith couples throughout the years and understands the issues that may arise. Rabbi Larry has counseled many couples who need a little help getting through their concerns about blending two faiths together and creating a fulfilling family life, family issues and of course financial issues which often cause stress and unhappiness in married life.

Once you decide to have Rabbi Larry officiate at your wedding he will become available to you via phone, SKYPE, email, or meeting in person so you can tap into his years of experience performing Jewish & Interfaith wedding ceremonies.

  • Please feel free to call or email Rabbi Larry. He is available to answer any questions you may have
    What is the background of the couple, the wedding party, the extended family, and the guests? What expectations do they bring?
  • What will be in Hebrew and what will be in English? Will other languages be included? How can we insure that all participants understand the events and can participate?
  • How many family and friends will be involved in the ceremony and what roles will they play? Is this an interfaith community?
  • What will we add to the traditional core service through readings and music, and which additions should we select?

By working closely to create a personalized wedding ceremony, we can combine religious tradition with personal meaning and develop a once-in-a-lifetime spiritual and romantic experience that will be treasured by all participants.

Rabbi Larry travels to South America, the Carribbean, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Europe,  Mexico and throughout the United States to officiate at Weddings and B’nai Mitzvot.  Rabbi Larry  officiates at traditional Jewish and Interfaith weddings.  His skill as a counselor allows him to counsel couples planning to get married and additionally he provides a “Premarital Preparation Course” as mandated by Statute in the State of Florida.

Testimonials

“Hi Rabbi Larry,

I believe Shanan emailed you the morning after the wedding, but I wanted to as well. I never got to say thank you in person (we were whisked away….happens, I guess) but I wanted to let you know I truly appreciated getting to know you and the beautiful service.  We received so many compliments and, more importantly, it was exactly what Shanan and I wanted.
I’m sure our paths will cross again for future joyous occasions.
All the best,”

It was a pleasure to meet you the other weekend at the Flaxman wedding!  The ceremony was beautiful – both utilizing tradition and a familiar element getting to know the couple as well.  I think you would be a fantastic fit for many of our brides and will be sure to suggest your services to them!  Please feel free to send me some additional business cards to distribute on your behalf if you would like!

All the best,”

” Dear Rabbi,
Thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony that did exceed our expectations. It was moving and personal and very inclusive. We were particularly appreciative that you conducted the ceremony in a way that all guests could understand and get something out of and you reduced our stress by keeping within the time frame we had discussed.
Thanks again for a fantastic ceremony. We will always remember it fondly.

Best Wishes,”

Sincerely,”

“Dear Larry and Ingrid,
We can’t begin to tell you how much your support, wisdom, guidance and good nature are all appreciated. While we all ‘hope’ to be able to ‘kvell’ under the chuppah, the fact that it actually happened the way it happened was beyond our expectations.  You both have a wonderful, kind way of relating to people that so many don’t have.  So we were proud to say to the wedding guests that you are dear friends!
Love and a hug to both of you!”

“Samantha’s Bat Mitzvah
Thank you so much for everything!  We couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out.  Even my father-in-law is exclaiming. You were wonderful and we were blessed to find you and to have you with us.  The link to the photos is below.  Enjoy!  Hopefully you’ll come back in two years for Mikaela’s celebration.  Were you able to nab some extra programs?  If not, let me know and I’ll try to send you some when I get the items back from the club.”

Dear Rabbi,
Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you did on our marriage ceremony.  You really captured exactly what we were looking for. We also cannot thank you enough for stepping in after Finn’s passing to help make our wedding a happy day instead of a sad one.
Thank you again!”

” Rabbi Larry,
Lauren and I could not have been more delighted with our ketubah and wedding ceremonies.  Simply stated: you were awesome, and you were a big hit with the crowd. We had a wonderful wedding experience and we thank you for being a part of it.  We will definitely send you a few photos of the ceremony.
If any of our family members or friends ever need a Rabbi, you are at the top of our list!
Love,”

Phillip and Lauren

“Dear Rabbi
That was an awesome ceremony you both gave us for our wedding.  I cannot thank you enough for how well you both presented both sides of our faiths.  The compliments keep coming from both sides of the families.  I would highly recommend you both in the future.  Thanks again and be well”

Dear Rabbi,
We have received so many compliments on our ceremony; mostly because of you! Thank you!  You made our wedding very special!”

Rabbi Larry and Ingrid,
Thank you for celebrating our wedding day.  The ceremony was not only beautiful but unforgettable.  You both made our day very special.  We look forward to sharing many more, happy occasions
Love,”

Jeanine and David

Dear Rabbi,
Thank you so much for the wonderful ceremony you performed at our wedding.  Thank you also for being so helpful and attentive in the weeks leading up to the wedding. You were right, everyone was so happy and felt included by your words.  Our parents were pleased and our guests were happy to hear the ceremony in multiple languages!

Thank you also for including our French guests, and allowing Ziane and Radia to participate in the translation during our ceremony.  It was a very memorable moment for us.

Personally, I have always had daydreams of myself and the man I would marry standing “at the altar.”  But no one I ever dated, did I see as the man standing next to me, until I met Franck.  Franck was the first man that I could really see standing there with me, when I had this thought.  And Franck and I have a very special, loving, and fun relationship.  Your ceremony, with your kind personality, your warmth and joy made my daydream even better than I could have expected.  Now, when I think of our ceremony, I remember the smiles, my tears of joy, the laughter we shared and the uplifting feeling of it all…

When I asked Franck the other day, what moment stood out for him, he said he remembers stepping on the glass, hearing the “Mazel Tov” and the wonderful feeling of taking me in his arms and kissing me at that moment.  He said he was moved to tears.
Thank you so much for giving us these moments that we will cherish forever.
Sincerely, ”

Rabbi Schuval was an absolute delight in every way! From the moment we met him, all the way up to our wedding day he was responsive, helpful, and warm! Rabbi Schuval has a wonderful way of explaining Jewish rituals during the ceremony and the rich symbolism embedded within them, from the drinking of the wine, to the breaking of the glass, everyone felt welcomed and accepted. Our wedding was truly a dream come true for me and my new husband and we are so grateful we had to Rabbi Schuval as our officiant!


 

Hello Rabbi,
We are finally back in town from our honeymoon and trying to catch up at work and ‘real life’… busy, busy!
We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for doing such a great job at our wedding. The ceremony was beautiful, meaningful, and light-hearted and meshed with our personalities very well. All my friends and family loved it, everyone has had a wonderful comment about you and the ceremony.
We have already been to Michael’s to pick out our custom framing for the beautiful ketubah.
Thank you again,”

Kerri & Todd
