My family and I can’t thank you enough for your meaningful and beautiful participation in officiating Matt’s Bar Mitzvah.


You made our entire experience so wonderful! It was a pleasurable and rewarding experience and so much of this was/is owed to you.

We hope to celebrate again with you as our other little ones become Bar Mitzvah'd

Thank you very much for making our son's Bar Mitzvah in Jerusalem such a memorable and meaningful experience.  ​

You led the service in a way that drew in and inspired both our Israeli and American guests - not an easy task but one that you accomplished drawing upon your unique background and experience.  Thank you again for the warmth, openness, and wisdom which contributed to making this Bar Mitzvah unforgettable!

Rabbi Ehud Bandel did the bat mitzvah service for our daughter last summer. From the minute we were assigned to him, he was so helpful. He was very patient and gave attention to any concerns. The service was conducted very nicely, and we couldn't have been happier.. ….. All our family that were there from US, and Israel were so impressed by him…….​

I am looking forward to coming back with our second daughter and have Rabbi Bandel conduct the service. It was a wonderful experience.
