I hope you enjoy the website & look forward to your call,






    For the past 17 years I have been writing speeches for weddings, Bar & Bat-
    mitzvahs, Sheva-Brachot, birthdays and many other occasions.

    I help give you the confidence to inform & entertain your audience by clarifying your ideas & thoughts and giving you a well-written speech to deliver. Saving you time and eliminating your stresses.

    I work with you to make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed about your speech and deliver it with confidence.


    The Mitzvah Tanz (lit. mitzvah dance) is a Hasidic traditional custom, when men (usually close family members of the bride or groom) dance with the bride after the wedding dinner. Commonly, the bride will hold one end of a long sash – the gartel – while the family member dancing before her holds the other end.
    The grandfather, father or sibling of the bride and groom, and the groom, will be called upon to dance with the bride. Prior to being called, a Badchen will recite a description of the individual and his family and its history – in rhyming verse – using a unique combination of witty humour and sincerity.


    If you would like a grammen – a humorous rhyme – to entertain your guests, I will prepare a ditty to be performed by a person of your choice, or – if you prefer, to be recited by myself.


    Being bi-lingual, fluent in both English and Hebrew, I am frequently asked to translate from and into these languages. Recently, I prepared a company and product overview, business plan and storyboard for an Israeli hi-tech company seeking to raise seed-capital for the development of a new App.
