Rabbi Sarah Tasman is truly a rabbi for our time. She brings new life and spirituality to traditional forms, such as life cycle events and prayer; she also brings creative thinking and energy to offer newer forms which Judaism can encompass, such as community gatherings, retreats, yoga and art as spiritual experience. Rabbi Sarah's warmth, joy and love of Judaism and life infuse all of her work. Be a part of anything she offers, and you will find yourself immersed in the best of what Judaism has to offer. - Rabbi Ora Weiss
Thank you for all of your brilliant counsel and guidance over the past several months. Your patience and insight made us so comfortable with the process of planning our wedding, it was easy to appreciate the beautiful aspects of the preparation and actual ceremony on a meditative and spiritual level. Without your kindness, friendship and wisdom, I don’t think we would have learned so much or been so thoughtful about what it means to be married. For that and so much more we’re forever grateful. – D.
Thank you so much for agreeing to officiate our wedding. We really enjoyed and learned so much from the planning process. And the ketubah signing & ceremony were absolutely perfect. We have had so many guests of different ages and background & faith traditions tell us how beautiful and inclusive our ceremony was. We are so happy and grateful. – F. and R.
Rabbi Sarah Tasman was an incredible resource to our family, searching for a way to infuse Jewish education into our son’s life. She met with me in person, listened carefully to what I was looking for, and offered ideas – not canned, generic ideas, but thoughtful suggestions that met our needs. It’s reassuring to know there are people like Rabbi Sarah in the DC area, who can act as a resource to those of us seeking a less traditional, 21st century Jewish experience. – Lauren T.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for being on my Beit Din and for helping to make my conversion day so special. I know my non-Jewish family members were very appreciative of the explanations you provided (particularly during the mikvah portion) and of your welcoming warmth in general. I cannot thank you enough for everything!
Thank you, Sarah, for leading such an engaged conversation. Our patrons loved sharing [The interfaith conversation after the performance of Redder Blood] and having a chance to meet you afterward at the reception. – Sarah Berry, Cultural Arts Director, Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia
It was such a privilege to be a part of the programs that you hosted Saturday morning at Camp Moshava Habonim Dror. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and energy. I am confident that experience will only enhance the summer at Mosh. I hope that we can connect in the future. – Board Member at Camp Moshava
Sarah, I was so impressed with you. I loved the workshop, and people are still talking about it. Your style was so easy and you were able to move the group so fluidly and without any tension. – Participant at Interfaith Grandparents Event at Bet Aviv
