Most amazing rabbi!
When my then fiancée and I were planning our wedding we came to a bit of an impasse. It was important to her to have a Jewish wedding but I was hesitant about conversion. When we, on a whim, typed “Interfaith Rabbi” into Google I’m not sure what we were expecting but what we found certainly exceeded it. We read through a few of the top hits but when we got to Ken’s website something just clicked and we reached out to him immediately to see if he was free for the day of our wedding. He got back to us to let us know he had no prior engagements scheduled but that it was the weekend of his anniversary and he would need to clear it with his wife. She gave her blessing and we couldn’t be more grateful to both of them for sacrificing part of their big weekend to let him be a part of ours.Sent on 09/27/2019
Once the date was set Ken reached out to set up a first meeting over the phone. In this meeting he gave us a rundown of all the typical parts of a ceremony for various levels of observation. He also made it clear that it was important to him to get to know us a bit in the time before our wedding and there would be several meetings to come. When we had time to digest the different options and decided on what we wanted for the ceremony we had a second in person meeting where we went through the plan and he asked us to speak a bit about ourselves and each other. I am not sure of exactly how many correspondences there were in total but he obliged all of our unwarranted concerns with incredible patience. He also took the time to read help us decide on the language of our Ketubah to ensure that it matched exactly what we wanted.
On the day of our wedding Ken met with us before the ceremony to sign the Ketubah and run through things one last time. The ceremony itself was perfect. He tailored the service specifically to what we had asked in terms of what to include or not and what language we were comfortable with. He made sure to explain the significance of every ritual and symbol in enough detail for the uninitiated without beating those in the know over the head. Right before our vows he spoke about us, recalling our conversations. It was clear that he had followed through on his earlier promise and truly gained amazing insight into who we were as individuals and a couple over the time we had known him.
Looking back it would be impossible to imagine our wedding without Ken. He was so integral to the planning of our ceremony both logistically and spiritually. We couldn’t even begin to count the compliments we received on him from attendees. We honestly cannot recommend him enough. Ken was a particularly good fit for our situation but I feel confident saying anyone who chooses Rabbi Hahn to officiate their event will be more than satisfied.

Best Rabbi you could find-- we loved working with Rabbi Hahn!
Rabbi Hahn was truly a pleasure to work with! From our first meeting, as he got to know both of us, to our calls closer to the wedding date, to the actual ceremony were were OVERJOYED with him as our Rabbi. Our guests have uniformly complimented us on him, saying it was one of their favorite services, and they loved how accessible and meaningful he made the Jewish traditions to everyone in attendance. He is charismatic, kind, knowledgable, flexible, and warm. We love Rabbi Hahn and couldn't have asked for better!Sent on 08/18/2019

Couldn't have imagined a better officiant for our wedding.
Rabbi Ken was an incredibly positive force that helped us find our own voices ahead of the ceremony. We wanted a non-religious wedding, while incorporating elements of both Judaism and Christianity, as we are a mixed-faith couple. We came across Ken's information online, and never thought about any other officiant for our wedding after our first call with him. He was attentive, caring, and incorporated a lot of our history and our story into his ceremony. He was willing to travel across the state, and open to any and all communication we requested ahead of the wedding. We can really only give the highest recommendation for Rabbi Ken.Sent on 08/01/2019
