HI, I’M RABBI PATRICK
It’s so nice to meet you! My ceremony services include non-religious, non-Jewish , Jewish and interfaith/intercultural. I am honored to share your special day. Learn More
(I’m also the guy who introduced the chocolate fountain to the Passover seder. The world has never been the same.)
I provide lifecycle services including weddings, funerals, bar and bat mitzvah, conversion to Judaism. My role as a community leader is to put others first and to help them get to where they want to go, and where they wish to grow.
I live in the Fan with my wife Stefanie and our two cats Maggie and Toes. I love hiking the many beautiful parks of Virginia, watching way too much TV (especially these days), participating in social justice activities, cooking and spending time with my friends.
