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.

Rabbi Tamara Kolton came to the “Wisdom Circle” class, sponsored by University of Michigan, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, on November 8, 2019 and taught the class about Judaism. Her class was intelligent, wise, and fun. The Adult Learners loved it. The “Wisdom Circle” is a class designed to give the learners a broad view and appreciation of the World’s Great Religions. We appreciated it very much and hope to have her back for future classes.

Dear Rabbi Tamara,

The kudos just keep rolling in; everyone was enchanted by your wonderful stories and lovely music. I especially enjoyed the tender story of how you encouraged your grandmother to swim. I don’t recall the context of this, but I caught a man in the congregation cracking a happy smile about something you said and it was indeed unusual for him and truly wonderful to behold.

Good to know that the Divine Feminine is alive and available to all!

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!

Things were pretty hectic after the speeches. I’m genuinely grateful we found a person of your warmth and humanity to guide us through these uncharted waters. You are truly a kind soul and a light for people in their darkest hour.

I’m sorry we met under these circumstances because Ila would have loved you, and you really seemed to love her too. I hope there are people in your life that give you the same comfort, care, and kindness that you gave to us. My best to you and yours, and if can ever be of service to you, it would be my honor.



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!



Dear Rabbi Kolton,
Thank you for leading a wonderful ketubah ceremony and wedding ceremony. We heard from our guests throughout the evening how special it was. You had everything to do with it! Your guidance through this process has proven invaluable.. Thank you for your wise counsel.
