Couples married by Rabbi Gloria talk about her open mind and heart. She enjoys travel, and will happily officiate at destination weddings. She also conducts baby-naming ceremonies, and meets for premarital and general counseling.

Because she is a great proponent of understanding the spiritual needs of the individual, Rabbi Gloria believes that the most important job of any Rabbi is to listen with a compassionate, empathetic and non-judgmental ear. Whether it is a joyous hug in times of celebration or a shoulder to cry on in times of transition, all are welcomed.

Rabbi Gloria was the Highlight of Our Ceremony!

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

As a second generation Filipina raised Catholic, with a Jewish husband to be, it was important for us to incorporate both Jewish and Catholic readings and rituals, as well as Filipino wedding traditions in our ceremony. After speaking with a number of Rabbis we knew we needed to find a Rabbi we connected with and whom we could trust. The ceremony was the most important part of our wedding for us and our families so it was important to find a great Rabbi. As soon as we met Rabbi Gloria we knew she was the one. With her expertise in the Jewish faith, knowledge of Catholic wedding ceremony traditions, not to mention her sharpness, flexibility, openness, and confidence, we knew she would be the perfect officiant for us. She did an amazing job. She crafted a beautiful very inclusive ceremony and ten of our friends and family participated as readers and Filipino ceremony sponsors. For such a complex ceremony, she executed very capably all the while holding people’s attention. And throughout our planning process, she was always very responsive offering to meet with us and our families as many times as needed for counseling and support. She also officiated our cousins wedding. We're keeping her in the family for all weddings!

Personal and Personalized Ceremony from the Heart

Wedding officiant make you comfortable? Why or why not?

We loved working with Rabbi Gloria for our October 2012 wedding. We first with Rabbi Gloria about a year out from our wedding and then meet with her several times after to help craft our ceremony to reflect both of our interfaith beliefs. She had wonderful suggestions and made us both feel comfortable about our wedding ceremony choices. She also made us feel that she was personally invested in our marriage and wanted the ceremony to reflect us as people. She took the time to get to know us and came to be someone I would call friend. We whole heartily recommend working with her for your own wedding ceremony.

What did the officiant or clergy add that was unexpected?

She asked us both to write biographies about each other and then gave us the opportunity to read them at the ceremony. It was the most emotional part of the ceremony for us.

How did you personalize your wedding ceremony?

We worked together to blend Christian customs into a Jewish ceremony as well as incorporate who we are as a couple.

Favorite wedding ceremony comment from guests?

So many people told us how beautiful our vows and biographies were. We did both Hebrew and self-written English vows. Rabbi Gloria did a great job helping us craft the order of everything!
