Ted Jobson – Commander of the Order of the British Empire 

  “I found the service beautiful. I particularly felt moved by the heart felt, confident, strong and tuneful delivery of each and every word, which meant much to me. I can translate much (but not all) but the way that you delivered the words made each and every word and sentence really matter. 

Sometimes the essence of prayer is lost in Shul, paradoxically, but not with the service you led. I personally come to Shul to have meditative, reflective and personalised time for prayer and contemplation, and you added to this process for me very much; thank you.”

Professor G 

“Len and I would like to thank you for helping to make our chuppah truly memorable.  So many people told me how wonderfully they thought you sang and we, of course, agree!”


“Thank you for your fantastic contribution to our wedding service. During the night everyone commented to us on how perfect the ceremony was and that your voice and performance was excellent. “


 “Everyone is still talking about how beautiful the service was especially your voice”


 “You performed so beautifully at our wedding. You have an amazing voice.”

 Elliot and Barbara

 “I just wanted to write to you briefly to tell you how much we enjoyed the chuppah yesterday and your wonderful singing. You really made the service special for us and we cannot thank you enough. We spent most of the night fielding relatives and friends, each of them telling us just how amazing the service was – and they all commented on how much they enjoyed the warmth and enthusiasm that you brought to it. And it’s worth mentioning the one American friend who mis-heard “chazzan” and was wondering which of my ‘cousins’ was the one with the amazing voice!”


“I write to you to say how much everyone enjoyed your performance. It was a marvellous day and those here are still talking about it! And will be for months to come. I hope the choir will be able to come again and if so you must be with them! Do keep in touch and, if you ever come this way you can be sure of a warm welcome. Very best wishes from Miriam and Michael and all here in Cheltenham.”

 “I am sure it is going to be very beautiful and moving and going by what we saw and heard of your performance on the DVD, I know we are in for a treat!!”

Family Michaels 

“Thank you very much for a lovely Shabbat service. Grandpa was absolutely thrilled and we really appreciate all the effort you put in and your lovely words. We also very much enjoyed your chazzanut and the choir.”


 “Just to thank you for your excellent singing yesterday which was greatly enjoyed by everybody. Your sheva berachot were particularly beautiful.”
