Cantor Bach made the preparation and execution of our son’s Bar Mitzvah a wonderful and meaningful experience. She is kind, easygoing, and tailored the entire service to his experiences and personality. It was perfect. We could not have been happier.

It was principally important for my wife and me that our wedding officiant know us, and not just conduct a canned ceremony as if we were strangers. Nancy was exactly what we were looking for. She met with us several times prior to our wedding and was always so enjoyable to be around. Sometimes I think she was acting as our wedding therapist, rather than our officiant. Nancy put together a beautiful ceremony that felt unique to us — we received countless compliments on it and would not hesitate to recommend Nancy to anyone considering her. The icing on the cake is that she has a beautiful chanting voice.

What can I say? Nancy’s fantastic! My girls love her. We all do. She took them from relative insignificant exposure to Hebrew/Jewish songs to performing a full range of spirited and moving prayers, chanting and Torah reading in literately a matter of months. My 10 and 13 year olds were up in front of the family and congregation fully engaged and immensely enjoying their participation at the older one’s Bat Mitzvah. We were crying! We were so proud! It was beautiful beyond words. Thank you Nancy.

Nancy is a leader who is an intelligent, honorable, dedicated, and caring educator. She is a catalyst with infectious energy and unique style of connecting with children and adults alike. As a result, Nancy cultivated a strong sense of Judaism in our family that was enhanced by open communication, trust and loyalty.

We had a wonderful experience working with Nancy on our wedding from January to June 2020. From the moment we met her, we were completely at ease and felt like we were able to really be ourselves with her. Our meetings were always both full of laughter and good, necessary, and meaningful conversations, led by Nancy, about our marriage. When Covid disrupted our wedding plans, Nancy was very much there for us with her warmth, care, and genuine concern. Not only did she help us navigate the ceremony details and wedding license process of our suddenly-Zoom wedding, she regularly checked in on us and served as a great source of comfort during this upsetting and stressful time. Our friends and family who “attended” our wedding via Zoom are still telling us how beautiful and special our unusual ceremony turned out to be, and we have only Nancy to thank for that!

I had the pleasure of having Cantor Nancy Bach officiate my son’s Bris ceremony over Zoom, during a pandemic when nothing seemed normal and we could hardly keep our feet on the ground, Nancy helped create a beautiful ceremony that left us feeling all the feels. While working with her, I found her to be attentive, supportive, understanding, and flexible to our nontraditional needs. Every email response from her she went out of her way to give me some sort of positive encouragement, which I found refreshing. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful. My friends and family thought I knew her from my temple growing up — that’s how intimate and personable the ceremony was. I strongly recommend working with Cantor Nancy and had nothing but a positive experience during a crazy time!
