Celebrating the Jewish New Year 2023

Words of Praise

Thank you so so much for such a meaningful ketubah signing ceremony and wedding ceremony. Because of the words you shared at the ceremony, the guests KNEW who these young adults were, and why we were celebrating all evening long. The ceremony was a “Wow!” So many guests have called and to share how the wedding ceremony was so special and meaningful. Thank you so much for your sincerity.
Jane Kessler
Mother Of Bride
We were honored to have worked with Rabbi Kolton. We were lucky to find a rabbi that catered to our interfaith ceremony. The most important aspect to us was a feeling of a personal experience, and Rabbi Kolton captured it perfectly, tailoring the entire process to our every wish. Our story of falling in love was interwoven seamlessly into the ceremony and our guests were engaged from beginning to end. We would highly recommend Rabbi Kolton to anyone looking for a unique and personalized touch!

Wedding Couple
It should make you feel like a saint to know that you were the 1st person I (and many others, I’m sure) thought of in our time of sadness, anxiety and need. I am so grateful that you have been part of my family’s life and history- and because of how you make us feel inside- calm, warm, safe, I could think of no other person I would comfortably turn to when my father was dying. Thank you for listening to our stories and for being there with us. My father would have smiled to know you were there with us. Thank you!
