Reb David deeply enjoys joining with families to craft heartfelt lifecycle ceremonies that are engaging, personal, meaningful and memorable. Ceremonies are adaptable to homes, synagogues, catering facilities and “destination locations” (as scheduling permits).
Reb David’s costs for lifecycle events are based on the New York Board of Rabbis fee schedule. It is adaptable on a sliding scale based on need and family circumstances. Lifecycle events performed in association with Temple Beth-El of City Island are subject to the Temple’s policies and fee schedule.
