Rabbi Kaplan did a wonderful job at our wedding last month. He struck the perfect balance of sincerity and humor.

Read More ensured all the traditions and symbolic acts were accessible to guests who may not be familiar with Jewish marriage customs.

We then completed a questionnaire, which he used to personalize our service. He also followed up via phone a few weeks before the wedding to invite us to ask him any last-minute questions. His services also included a beautiful ketubah. We can’t recommend Rabbi Kaplan enough.

If we could give Rabbi Kaplan 10 stars, we would! To start things off, my fiance, now husband and I had a difficult time finding a Rabbi who would officiate our Friday night (Shabbat) wedding.
