We just have to thank you for such a beautiful beautiful ceremony , and a fantastic job with everything, especially your help with organising us in the bridal suite where the venue staff was absent.
We were so pleased with our wedding, and received so many compliments from our friends and family on the ceremony specifically!! It was our favourite part of he evening. Chris’s family never saw a Jewish wedding and they absolutely loved it! The prayers, the sand, the ketubah, the singing ,the vows, it was all so magical I couldn’t have asked for anything better. We were truly blessed to have you as our rabbi.
So thank you again from our hearts and we hope to speak with you again along our journey. Maybe for the bris!?! (Do you do those?)
Much love, mazel and happy new year!!

There are not enough kind words in the dictionary to fully describe Rabbi Michael. I first came to know him several years ago when I contacted him inquiring about converting to Judaism. From that point forward he was there for me every step of the way, guiding me and teaching me along my path to becoming Jewish. He was extremely accommodating and flexible, and he even offered to do most of our lessons via Skype to work with my school schedule. He quickly became more than a Rabbi, and I am now so pleased to call him a friend. He conducted the most beautiful conversion ceremony at the Naples beach and incorporated my family in the process. Once my husband and I became engaged, he was our first phone call…of course we had to have him officiate our wedding! Throughout the planning process he was so helpful and even gave me advice on which vendors to choose (all of whom were incredible). I jokingly refer to him as my “Concierge Rabbi” because he is truly a 24/7 Rabbi….always responding promptly to my texts or emails. When our wedding day came around, he officiated the most beautiful and truly personalized ketubah signing and ceremony. We are still receiving warm messages from guests about “how great our Rabbi was!” Thank you so much Rabbi Michael, and we can’t wait to share more life memories together with you!
This man right here... made our wedding amazing!!!! From the second I met him, I knew he was the one! :-) He was fun,
thoughtful, charismatic and everyone said that he was the best officiant they had ever seen! We did not want to write our own vows because we didn’t even know where to start, but he had this ability to have us write some things down and he read it out loud and it was awesome and amazing! Rabbi Michael, you are one-of-a-kind and we are so grateful to have you now as a friend!
My husband and I were so lucky to have Rabbi Raab officiate our wedding. I have know him for several years and would not have had anyone else officiate our ceremony. I wanted a very non traditional and quick ceremony, and he delivered just that, but still made it so personal and touching.
No matter your religious beliefs, Rabbi Raab will deliver exactly what you want in the best way possible!!
Thank you Rabbi for the best experience and ceremony ever!
Rabbi Michael is the absolute best! My husband and I were worried about creating a meaningful inter-faith ceremony. We didn't know exactly where to start, but then we reached out to Rabbi Michael Raab and he guided us through the entire process. He was able to help us put together a beautiful ceremony along with our church, and we are so thankful! Rabbi Michael is eloquent, charismatic and professional. We highly recommend him!
My husband and I cannot say enough about Rabbi Michael. He truly made our wedding ceremony one of a kind and we can't wait to see what other events we have in our life so that we can include him! Lots of love as always!

We had such a beautiful ceremony thanks to Rabbi Raab. He's great! Everything was thought out and executed in a perfect way.
Rabbi Raab was fantastic in every way. He was easy to work with, relaxed and went with the flow despite an elaborate wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and tasteful. A great choice that we were beyond happy with.
This man is by far the best, he will be out Rabbi for years to come. Rabbi Rabb is a hit with the guests and couldn't be more of a pleasure to work with. Jewish, interfaith, anything you imagine this man will make you feel like a valued component of his life. I could go on for hours you won't be disappointed you did!
Having Rabbi Michael as our Rabbi was the absolute best decision we made in regards to our entire wedding! My now wife and I met Rabbi Michael at an LGBT expo in Tampa almost 4 years ago now. After meeting with him and talking to him, we knew right then and there we had to have him as our Rabbi! So 3 years later I contacted him and booked him for our wedding! We were very excited he was available, and couldn't believe he had remembered us after all of those years and all of the weddings in between! Rabbi Michael is wonderful in every way. He is easy to talk to, responds quickly to emails, texts, and or voicemails, and makes you feel like you are the only wedding couple he is working with. He listens carefully to your wants and needs, and delivers on them. Rabbi Michael made our wedding ceremony exceptional. It was by far the best ceremony I have ever been to, as well as most of our guests. We had a ton of compliments on how wonderful the ceremony was and how wonderful Rabbi Michael was! Some of our guests are still raving about him and our wedding was a month ago now! I would totally recommend Rabbi Michael for any of his services you may need!
Working with Rabbi Michael was a wonderful experience for our entire family. From the beginning he was available to meet in person and discuss the process , as we were completely unfamiliar and the first to marry in our family as well as be a destination wedding. He made the months of planning easy and enjoyable. My mother happens to be Spanish and rabbi was able to speak in Spanish at certain parts of the wedding, which meant a lot to my family. He got to know josh and I well and it showed during the ceremony. The entire process was beautiful , we highly recommend rabbi Michael!!!!
Rabbi Raab may have started off as the officiant to our wedding, but going through the whole process with him means he's our rabbi and friend for life! I was amazed how much time the rabbi would spend with my fiancé and I-- whether it was on the phone, face time or in person when we visited Naples. Each time we spoke he always gave us great advice and spent time getting to know us so that he built us a wonderful ceremony. With guests from around the globe and with different religions, we wanted our ceremony to be very personal and unique and rabbi raab truly made that the case. Our family are still talking about how special the ceremony was and it was fabulous that rabbi explained all the traditions and parts of the ceremony that people may not have understood. Lastly, rabbi raab has a great personality and really made us laugh! Moments before the ceremony he came to check in on me in my room where I was really nervous and he gave me a hug and cracked some jokes! My fiancé and I were thrilled he was part of our day. Thank you!!!!
Rabbi Michael did an amazing job officiating our wedding! The ceremony was absolutely beautiful and he was very easy to work with. The process was smooth and he listened to exactly what we wanted.
Rabbi Rabb is by far an amazing and understanding rabbi. My husband who is Jewish and Iam Catholic just got married on April 29 of this year both my husband and I wanted an interfaith marriage. Rabbi Rabb agreed to come down from Naples to Boca Raton and co-officiate our marriage with my priest Father Gavin. Rabbi Rabb is so organized he had written the entire ceremony for not only himself but for my priest. Everyone at the wedding who is both Jewish and Catholic were amazed on how well that both men worked so well together as if they have been doing it for years when this was the first time they both had met. Since Rabbi Rabb lives in Naples Florida communication was either through Skype or emails. He was always very quick and his responses and answering any questions we had. As I stated before we totally recommend rabbi Rabb because he made our special day one we will never forget. Thank you Rabbi Rabb for everything you have done for Matthew and I .
We can't say enough great things about Rabbi Raab! We have been to a lot of weddings and I have never heard so many people comment on how beautiful and personal a ceremony was. We heard this over and over on our wedding night. Our ceremony was above and beyond our expectations and that is because of Rabbi Raab. It was so special to have someone that has known my parents since college officiate our wedding. It was also the perfect balance of Jewish traditions for our interfaith marriage! He is the best and thanks for making our ceremony SO special!
Rabbi Raab helped make our special day one we will never forget. Our ceremony was perfect and exactly what we wanted. He truly made it the best day ever.
Rabbi Michael was absolutely AMAZING! From the first time we met him to co-officiating at our wedding, he was nothing short of wonderful! We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Rabbi and sharing our story with him. He truly has a wonderful personality and makes you feel like you've known him for years! Our wedding ceremony was above & beyond what we dreamed of! We've had many many compliments about how amazing our ceremony was and we owe it to Rabbi and Rev. Dan Lamey! I can't thank them enough!!
Rabbi Michael was a pleasure to work with! He performed a beautiful inter-faith ceremony with Father Luis Lopez. We highly recommend him as a wedding officiant.
Rabbi Michael was absolutely wonderful. He was very willing to work with us to create the ceremony of our dreams at the Marco Island Marriott. He brought so much personality and humor to our special day. All of our guests came up to us and said how much they loved him. Still to this day, our guests comment on how amazing and funny Rabbi Michael was. Coming from New York, we loved how much time Rabbi Michael spent with us, via Skype and over the phone and the interest he took to really get to know us, both as a couple and individually. He took the time to personalize our ceremony and we really appreciated that. Rabbi Michael went the extra mile to make sure we had copies of our marriage license before we returned home to New York. We are so thankful for Rabbi Michael and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Rabbi Michael was amazing!! He really got to know us well and was so personable throughout the whole process! Our ceremony was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better rabbi to marry us!! Xoxoxo

You surely knew how to make the most important day of my life so special. I can't thank you enough...
My husband and I were delighted with the wedding ceremony Rabbi Michael officiated. He set a beautiful tone for the proceedings, and conducting the service in Hebrew, English and Spanish helped every guest feel like they were part of it. As a gay couple, we loved being able to honor Jewish traditions, and Rabbi Michael made us feel like valued members of the Jewish community.

Great Rabbi!!! Had a wonderful service with him, very personable and does interfaith which was so so helpful for us!
I couldn't have asked for a better officiant for my wedding than Rabbi Michael Raab. All of my guests said that this was the greatest service they have been part of. Rabbi Raab explained the whole process thoroughly for everyone to understand including those with faiths other than Jewish. He got to know my wife and I before the wedding and incorporated that into the service better than anyone else that knows us. The whole service was entertaining and the vibe was right. Rabbi Michael Raab has mastered wedding ceremonies. I highly recommend him to all future bride and grooms. You will not be disappointed.
