  • Rabbi Ken officiated our holiday wedding in Newport, Rhode Island, in December 2019. We simply can’t overstate what a truly phenomenal job Rabbi Ken did, and how fortunate we feel to have had him as such an integral part of our Wedding day. While we could go on and on, Haley and I wanted to share a few highlights in hopes it is helpful for any couples who are considering and/or lucky enough to work with Ken: • From our first Facetime call almost a year prior to our Wedding day, we felt as though we’d known Ken much longer. He has a great disposition, he’s kind, funny, very giving of his time, and genuinely cared about getting to know us as individuals and as a couple. By the time our wedding had concluded and we received countless compliments of how beautiful our Ceremony was, many saying it was the best Ceremony they’d ever attended, one recurring misconception from our guests was that they thought Ken was my Rabbi from growing up and that he’d known us for years.

  • We loved working with Rabbi Ken throughout the process of our wedding. Rabbi Ken was willing to marry us on Shabbat when many other rabbis would not. This was important to us as an interfaith couple who did not want to get married on a Friday or Sunday. Prior to our wedding day, he explained every part of a Jewish wedding ceremony and worked with us to include the pieces that were important to us. He took the time to get to know us on a personal level and made the ceremony feel incredibly intimate for ourselves, our friends and our families. During our ceremony he made Judaism feel so accessible for all of our friends and family, Jews and non-Jews alike. One of our non-Jewish friends even said he felt like he was Jewish by the end of the ceremony. Rabbi Ken was funny and engaging; he brought humor, meanwhile paying respect to the Jewish traditions that we found important. We highly recommend Rabbi Ken!

  • Rabbi Ken was phenomenal to work with. We found him though wedding wire about 2 years ago when we got married. We knew from the first phone call he was perfect to officiate our interfaith wedding. We had a couple phone calls and then we met in person in Boston and talked for hours. It felt like we had known him forever. He did a great job at listening to our stories and to really understand us as a couple. He was so flexible when we moved our venue 2 months before our wedding. Our wedding ceremony was perfect. He did a great job making the ceremony so personal. He also did a great job explaining many of the Jewish traditions as there were many people there who were not jewish. Everyone came up to make after and said how amazing the ceremony was. Our wedding day would not have been the same without him!

  • We found Ken through our venue a year before the wedding and by the time we got married it felt like we had known each other for a much longer time. Ken spent the time to really get to know us through many meals and trips to Boston and lead our ceremony in a way that really represented our relationship and hopes for marriage. He wove in Judaism in ways that were reflective and honest. In a moment that could feel intimidating and formal, during the ceremony Ken made us feel comfortable and present. We still get texts saying "we love Rabbi Ken" and all of my mom's friends want him as their Rabbi.

  • We knew we wanted a Jewish ceremony, but as a non-Jew and a not-practicing Jew, we weren't sure where to begin. Ken, through a series of fun and helpful planning calls, explained all of the traditions, and had us "pick and choose" which elements resonated with us. We added some personal elements, too, making it a perfect mix of personal & traditional. During the ceremony itself, Ken explained the traditions to our guests as well, which made it a fun and inclusive experience for everyone. Our ceremony was simply perfect, & many people said it was the best they'd been to. Everything about the process of planning and working with Ken was superb -- he's professional, always replies in a timely manner, etc. -- and we honestly just had a ball getting to know him. Highly, highly recommend!

  • When my then fiancée and I were planning our wedding we came to a bit of an impasse. It was important to her to have a Jewish wedding but I was hesitant about conversion. When we, on a whim, typed “Interfaith Rabbi” into Google I’m not sure what we were expecting but what we found certainly exceeded it. We read through a few of the top hits but when we got to Ken’s website something just clicked and we reached out to him immediately to see if he was free for the day of our wedding. He got back to us to let us know he had no prior engagements scheduled but that it was the weekend of his anniversary and he would need to clear it with his wife. She gave her blessing and we couldn’t be more grateful to both of them for sacrificing part of their big weekend to let him be a part of ours. Once the date was set Ken reached out to set up a first meeting over the phone. In this meeting he gave us a rundown of all the typical parts of a ceremony for various levels of observation. He ...

  • Originally, we hired another Rabbi who fell through at the last minute. At the eleventh hour, we found Rabbi Hahn online and reached out. He immediately responded and empathized with our situation, and although we only had a few months before the wedding to prepare, Rabbi Hahn got to truly know us as a couple in a short timeframe. He gave us homework and we did a few phone conferences so we could work out the fine details (procession and recession info, ketubah signing, ring exchange, ect.). Rabbi Hahn immediately got our sense of humor and our hope of keeping the ceremony light and happy. He was also flexible with how we wanted to keep some Jewish traditions but not others. Important to note as well that we were living in New York at the time and the ceremony was to be in Massachusetts -- Rabbi Hahn was extremely accommodating in facilitating phone, face time and in-person meetings as needed Out of all the compliments received for the the wedding, a repeated compliment from guests ...

  • Rabbi Ken really made an effort to get to know us and personalize the ceremony. We met multiple times in person and on the phone before the wedding. During the ceremony, he was engaging and made the rituals and traditions accessible for all guests. We loved working with him!

  • Rabbi Hahn was truly a pleasure to work with! From our first meeting, as he got to know both of us, to our calls closer to the wedding date, to the actual ceremony were were OVERJOYED with him as our Rabbi. Our guests have uniformly complimented us on him, saying it was one of their favorite services, and they loved how accessible and meaningful he made the Jewish traditions to everyone in attendance. He is charismatic, kind, knowledgable, flexible, and warm. We love Rabbi Hahn and couldn't have asked for better!

  • Rabbi Ken was an incredibly positive force that helped us find our own voices ahead of the ceremony. We wanted a non-religious wedding, while incorporating elements of both Judaism and Christianity, as we are a mixed-faith couple. We came across Ken's information online, and never thought about any other officiant for our wedding after our first call with him. He was attentive, caring, and incorporated a lot of our history and our story into his ceremony. He was willing to travel across the state, and open to any and all communication we requested ahead of the wedding. We can really only give the highest recommendation for Rabbi Ken.

    Hi Liz- Thanks for the review. I’m glad I was a hit, but more importantly, I’m very happy you and Mike were so satisfied with the ceremony. Best, Ken

  • Rabbi Hahn was fantastic, and guided us through every detail of our wedding ceremony. He was knowledgeable, flexible, and ensured we didn't stress out about any details. Over the period of time before our wedding, we forged an incredible relationship with him. After the wedding, family and friends were telling us how incredible the ceremony was!

  • Rabbi Hahn really took the time to get to know us, and to make the ceremony as perfect as it could be. He is easy to talk to and is a great listener. On the actual wedding day, he was very much on the ball! He worked with us when we needed to make last minute changes. All of our guests kept telling us about how much they loved the ceremony and the Rabbi specifically. We very highly recommend Rabbi Hahn to anyone!

  • We loved working with Rabbi Ken! He helped us have the wedding of our dreams. Working with Ken prior to the wedding always brought a smile to my face. It was fun to figure out the best ceremony format for us with Ken, he explained everything in detail, and was always available for a chat. With Ken’s guidance, we structured a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted for our interfaith wedding with a Jewish ceremony. The ketubah signing and the ceremony itself were made complete by Rabbi Ken. He made every single guest feel thoroughly included and he ensured everyone understood everything he was doing and why. It was truly a pleasure to work with Ken and this was clearly evidenced by the numerous compliments I received all night long on the ‘cool,’ ‘smart,’ and ‘eloquent’ Rabbi we found! I wouldn’t have had it any other way! We wholeheartedly recommend Rabbi Ken as he is a wonderful, caring, and charming wedding officiant.

  • It's hard to say enough positive things about Rabbi Hahn. The best compliment is probably how well our guests reacted to him after the ceremony. As we visited the tables to say our hellos and thank yous, everyone raved about how funny and fantastic he had been. Working with the Rabbi was an absolute joy. We were traveling for our wedding and needed someone willing to do an interfaith marriage that would still carry the feeling of Jewish cultural elements, without being heavily religious. We didn't feel we needed counseling, but Rabbi Hahn agreed with us on a price that was within our budget and then was very generous with his time. He sent us resources to look over as we considered the ceremony we wanted, talked us through the different elements, and really listened to what we were looking for to make it personal. We never actually met the Rabbi until our rehearsal the night before, and that was perhaps the most amazing part. After the handful of conversations we had, he had... Read more
