Cantor Pincus,

 

Thank you so much. The ceremony was so special and it went exactly as discussed. Again, thank you for marrying us.

Working with Cantor Pincus was nothing less than a revelation. When we’d asked him to officiate -- neither of us were observant of the Jewish traditions and yet we wanted to be married under the Chuppah. Cantor Dan spent many hours with us looking at what was important to us and what we wanted to create as a result not only of our marriage but in the world. The ultimate ceremony was beautiful, moving and memorable. Not only was it an extraordinary beginning to our life together but as a result of our experience with Dan we found ourselves more and more drawn to our roots and to the Jewish traditions.

We can’t say enough about Cantor Dan – he’s brilliant, sensitive and just the best possible officiant you could have to start your lives together.

Thanks so much. We had a wonderful time, and thought the ceremony went very well. You and Father Rick did a fantastic job!  Thanks for everything.

It was a pleasure to work with Cantor Pincus. He helped emphasize the importance of the ceremony as well as ensure we were prepared. It was especially nice that he took the time to get to know my fiance and me so that he could speak about us personally.

I have known Cantor Daniel Pincus for 10 years and he is a consistently warm-hearted and learned religious professional. As Cantor to our congregation he gave his best to the whole community. His beautiful voice and his thoughtful commentaries were highlights of weekly services. For the high holidays he organized a youth shofar choir drawn from our Hebrew School kids. He emphasized ritual and meaning while maintaining the instrumental basics. He is a generous and wise adviser, true to his art and soulful with the congregants. His chanting of the "seven blessings" at my wedding in 2010 was reverent, vibrant and beautifully performed.

Cantor Pincus helped us think about what my husband and I meant to each other and skillfully incorporated those ideas into our wedding ceremony.

Cantor Daniel is amazing!!! I am so happy he was the one to do our marriage ceremony! He is professional, caring and extremely involved! The ceremony wouldn’t have been as special if it wasn’t for Cantor Daniel. Highly recommended!!

He conducted a beautiful and meaningful ceremony for us and everybody loved it. It was also very easy to get in touch with him and he answers promptly. I highly recommend Cantor Pincus to anyone looking for a wedding ceremony officiant!!

Dan Pincus has the voice of an angel. He brought deep experience as a musician and cantor to our interactions in selecting both traditional pieces we added to our ceremony, as well as other musical selections we integrated into the procession and the reception. He was an excellent addition to the overall event and collaborated well with other players and clergy in a professional manner with enthusiasm and tact. Iva K.
