Look no further, Rabbi Kaplan is hands down the best!!!
I had the pleasure of seeing Rabbi Kaplan in action at 2 different weddings before I myself was engaged. One of the wedding ceremonies even had both the rabbi and a priest officiating the ceremony. I can’t say I’ve ever gone to a wedding and left thinking about how great the rabbi was until I witnessed Rabbi Kaplan in action. At both weddings he effortless came across as charismatic, funny, laid back, and I knew I wanted him for my own wedding ceremony. We are not religious at all so we did not want a very religious or traditional ceremony and Rabbi Kaplan had no problem personalizing the ceremony to best reflect us as a couple. We originally booked Rabbi Kaplan to officiate our wedding on Saturday March 28th, 2020 however due to the coronavirus pandemic everything shut down 2 weeks before our date we had to move the wedding date to November 6th, 2020 (a Friday). I was worried that Rabbi Kaplan would not be able to provide his services now that the wedding was on a Friday evening (Shabbat) but he told us that since we were going through so much rescheduling the event and trying to coordinate with all the vendors to find a new date that worked for everyone, he was willing to make an exception and still be the officiant for our wedding despite it being on a Friday before sundown. He also helped us immensely when we were having difficulty obtaining our marriage license due to limited available appointments at our local courthouses (no walk ins allowed). On the day of our wedding Rabbi Kaplan was so warm and welcoming and his demeanor instantly made all the guests (and the groom and I) so comfortable and relaxed. Multiple guests came up to me after the service raving about how personable and down to earth our rabbi was. In all honesty he rocked our wedding ceremony! We could not be happier with how smooth and effortless he made everything feel. Hiring Rabbi Kaplan to officiate our wedding was hands down one of the easiest and best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding planning process. I have yet to see anyone do a better job than him. With all the decisions that need to be made in the wedding planning process, this is one that is a no-brainer. Do yourself a favor and book Rabbi Kaplan for your wedding ASAP!!! There is no possible way you will be disappointed!!Sent on 11/22/2020

Looking for a great Rabbi?
Rabbi Kaplan is extremely personable, experienced, charming, funny, and very good with the latest technology. All of our Zoom guests remarked about how much they enjoyed the ceremony which was all due to Rabbi Kaplan. Prior to our wedding, he made sure to get to know us which enabled him to personalize the ceremony. We would highly recommend him. If you are looking for a Rabbi, don't hesitate to hire Rabbi Jonathan Kaplan. You won't be sorry!Sent on 03/23/2021

Rabbi to the Rescue
Rabbi Kaplan was amazing! He made my non-Jewish husband and family feel extremely comfortable as he made sure to explain all of the Hebrew into English. We were so grateful that he was available for our wedding day and would recommend him to any bride to be.Sent on 03/11/2021
