  • I was determined to have an orthodox wedding. My fiancee, who is non-observant, would greatly have preferred reform or even apostate. Over her protests, I retained Rabbi Joe, an open-minded but Hassidic rabbi. Well, he did such a fine job that she is still talking about it. Who knows, HaShem willing, maybe this will be the first step to her becoming baalas teshuvah!

  • Rabbi Kolakowski did a wonderful job. Accommodating in location, the type of clothing, very professional and is truly zealous for what he does. Rabbi Kolakowski found another witness for us, was very reasonable in cost, held the date for us, was on time, took care of the license, Katubah, custom Katubah, allowed photos and videos, presented all his credentials, and made sure all was done in proper order. Thanks for making my daughter’s wedding so wonderful with all the accommodations you made for us. Thanks, Howard Rothbard

  • I'm a last minute type of person, so looking for an officiant was a hard task to pull off. The good Lord sent Joe my way! Even though Joe is from a different faith vs my own but he was wonderful to work with. He let me tailor my ceremony how I thought it would fit our needs and wants. His wife is also a lovely woman to talk with. I couldn't have been more pleased with how we were treated. To have him marry me and my husband within 24 hours of talking to him and being so professional at it, I am thinking of hiring him to do my sons christening. I would highly recommend him for any event! Talking to Joe is like talking to an old friend!

  • Rabbi Joe did an excellent job at my daughter Sabrina's baby naming. He took the time to plan out the ceremony with our input and even allowed my wife and myself to speak about the people Sabrina was named after. Everyone at the Temple appreciated his kind manor. I have heard nothing but good things about Sabrina's baby naming. I recommend Rabbi Joe very highly.

  • Joseph Kolakowski helped me find a simple civil ceremony we would be happy with. He drove 3 hours one way to perform the ceremony. He was very personable and friendly and he made us feel at ease. He arrived on time and his work was outstanding. We would recommend him for other wedding services.

  • All the months of planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah, the venue, the food, the music, on and on it went and at the end of the day the one thing people kept saying was “I love your Rabbi”! Our situation was a little unique as we wanted an abbreviated ceremony and struggled to find a Rabbi that would accommodate this request. I assured my wife I would find someone but after making several calls I was beginning to doubt that I could fulfill such a promise that was until I called Rabbi Joe. After two minutes on the phone and hearing his calm demeanor I knew I had struck gold. We quickly agreed on the specifics but I told him he would have to speak with my wife so we got off the phone and I asked my wife to call him, fifteen minutes later she called me back and said “He is perfect”! Rabbi Joe came to our house about a month before the event and met with us and my son and he was very open to modifying the ceremony to fit our family. On the day of the event my in-laws were 30 min... Read more
