  • Rabbi Annie and our daughter spent nearly 3 years together while Annie prepared her for her Bat Mitzvah, mostly via Zoom with a few in person meetings. Thanks to Annie's devotion and kindness, they forged a real and meaningful bond during that time. Our daughter ended up performing beautifully at her Bat Mitzvah - thanks to a lot of hard work and especially to Rabbi Annie's patient and steady guidance. At the day of the event, Rabbi Annie spoke eloquently to our assembled guests (both Jewish and non) and her remarks to our daughter were particularly genuine and moving. I would recommend Annie for any life event.

  • Rabbi Bornstein provided valuable Counseling to us throughout the process, even though we didn't think we needed it. She was very accomodating, very incisive, and very inspirational. The service she performed was appreciated greatly by all.

  • I saw Rabbi Annie officiate at one of my friend's weddings and loved their ceremony so much that I immediately contacted her for our ceremony! We are living in California but got married in Maryland and Rabbi Annie was very accommodating when it came to scheduling our pre-marriage sessions via FaceTime. She made us feel very comfortable while talking with her during these sessions. As an interfaith couple, we really appreciated the way Rabbi Annie customized our ceremony to be the perfect fit for us. She truly got to know us and that was evident during the ceremony and all of the wonderful things she said that rang true to both of us on our special day. Rabbi Annie held a very big part in making the day so perfect.

  • We are so grateful to Rabbi Annie for leading a special wedding ceremony for us. Like so many others, we had to downsize our wedding plans dramatically because of Covid. Rabbi Annie remained flexible throughout our changing plans, including a changed venue and moving the wedding outdoors. We enjoyed getting to know her in the months leading up to the wedding through our pre-marital sessions (both in-person and via FaceTime). She was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple. We appreciated that she was so open to crafting our wedding ceremony to be just as religious and just as personal as we wanted; we never felt pressured to include any particular elements. On the day of our backyard wedding, Rabbi Annie was punctual, professional, and flexible as we dealt with heavy rain during our ceremony. She led a beautiful marriage ceremony that was memorable for us and for our guests. Several of our guests commented on how much they liked her. She is a true stage presen... Read more

  • Rabbi Annie did an incredible job with our (very) last minute micro-wedding ceremony. Even in a short amount of time, she was able to get to know us and make the ceremony feel personal and incredibly meaningful. Our families couldn’t have been happier with how the day turned out.

  • Rabbi Annie made us feel like we were the only couple in the world getting married! She took the time to truly get to know us, and it felt like we had known her for years even though we just met last year. Her approach was to listen to us, understand what we wanted, and guide us through the preparation process. She was incredibly flexible and accommodating with scheduling and other changes we had to make due to the pandemic. Rabbi Annie told us our ceremony would be beautiful, and it truly was beautiful, beyond everything we had hoped for. Her presence, her voice and her words were moving and inspirational to us as we were beginning our new life together as a married couple. Rabbi Annie is truly exceptional and we are so fortunate to have found her.

  • Rabbi-Cantor Bornstein created a beautiful ceremony for us, tailored to everything we had wanted and more. It was traditional but personalized for us, and the ceremony felt so special and warm. A highlight was also her beautiful voice for the prayers.

  • It was a pleasure to have Rabbi Annie officiate her wedding. She did a great job walking us through the process, was flexible enough for us to combine traditional and contemporary elements of a Jewish wedding, and gave very touching remarks during the ceremony. We are so grateful that she was part of our special day!

  • Wow! We are beyond grateful for the way Rabbi Annie officiated our wedding on May 18th and the many months she spent getting to know us beforehand. It was truly such a beautiful introduction into Judaism for my husband and I am proud to have her be the first Rabbi he has gotten to know. Her openness of our interfaith marriage, generosity of your time, thoughtfulness and guidance has been unprecedented in our experience so far. The words she spoke during our wedding were the most meaningful, I truly felt like she witnessed our love story, uplifted the best in us, and helped us navigate any challenges. What a privilege it has been having Rabbi Annie usher us into this new stage of our lives!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed working with Rabbi Annie for our wedding. We hit it off with her from the start and felt she truly cared about us. She included many marriage counseling sessions which we enjoyed and found to be useful. She was always very flexible with scheduling meetings and was always open to meeting us. She really got to know us well and did an excellent job personalizing our service. We absolutely recommend her!

  • We really enjoyed working with Rabbi Annie, and received many compliments on how beautiful and well thought-out our service was. She used her knowledge of Judaism and us (She spent a LOT of time getting to know us!) to help us craft the perfect service. For example, we swapped 7 blessings for 7 unique wishes from different couples we admire- her idea. She consulted with us on our ketubah and was extremely helpful in that respect. Sometimes her style can be a bit brusque, but her overall service was full of love and really spoke to us as a couple. we highly recommend her.
