Excellent Rabbi, 10 Stars

I cannot express enough how grateful my spouse and I are to have had Rabbi Winer officiate our interfaith wedding. From the beginning, Rabbi Winer was an absolute pleasure to work with, making the entire process smooth and enjoyable. His warm demeanor, professionalism, and genuine care for our special day truly made a lasting impression on us. Rabbi Winer took the time to understand our story, values, and what we envisioned for our ceremony. He seamlessly incorporated our personal touches and preferences, resulting in a ceremony that felt uniquely ours. His guidance and support throughout the planning process were invaluable, making us feel confident and at ease as we prepared for our big day.

We feel incredibly lucky to have had him and his talented wife Lori as a part of our wedding and we wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking for a meaningful, personalized, and unforgettable ceremony.

Beautiful Wedding

Rabbi Winer was great to work with. He co-officiated our wedding with a Reverend and was collaborative to include elements from Judaism and Christianity. Rabbi Winer was very responsive to communications before the wedding and had many phone calls with us to discuss ceremony options and planning and was supportive to us. We absolutely recommend Rabbi Winer!

Simply wonderful

Rabbi Winer officiated our interfaith ceremony beside Father Oneto. They are friends and colleagues in faith leadership and their respect and care for each other was apparent to all who attended our ceremony. They truly made everything so special and every last person in the room felt welcome. If you're looking for a Boston rabbi, look no further. Rabbi Winer is truly incredible, and aside from being an excellent rabbi, he's also an excellent comedian with the sharpest wit in the room.
