Happy Family adds a son

Baby Namings

“Rabbi Dan is an absolute pleasure to be around and to work with. He always seems to find just the right words for any occasion. In both co-officiating our (interfaith) wedding and overseeing the naming ceremony for our new son, he took a genuine interest in our backgrounds and then managed to incorporate that knowledge into both ceremonies seamlessly. He is not only able and willing to work with others from different backgrounds (i.e. crafting a custom wedding ceremony in collaboration with my wife’s Reverend), but he also clearly ENJOYS the challenge and learning opportunity that comes with it. As a new member of the Houston community, I am especially glad to have found Rabbi Dan!”
“JJ,” new father

Renewal of Wedding Vows

“No one else could have made the moment as ‘special’ as you did.  You add such warmth, kindness and joy into everything you do, and it was apparent to everyone there.  We were truly overwhelmed.”

— Mike and Marilynn, 50th anniversary couple



Bar and Bat Mitzvah

“Special thanks to Rabbi Dan Gordon for his work with my daughters.  He is the personification of a mensch, and I could not imagine Rabbi Gordon in any other vocation.  This rabbi is what any religious leader should aspire to be:  calm, kind, understanding, funny, principled and truly a fine example for all of us.”

— James — Father of Bat Mitzvah Students
