  • We are so grateful to have had Rabbi raab as our officiant. What a lovely, funny guy. We loved that he kept our ceremony to 20 minutes. He made our ceremony short, sweet, and funny. Rabbi Raab is a ball of love and humor. Some traits to describe Rabbi Raab: 1. Excellent communicator, 2. Very affordable, 3. Handsome, 4. Sweet, 5. Funny, 6. Organized, 7. Timely, 8. Handsome, 9. Handsome, and did we say 10. Handsome. Seriously though, if you're looking for a Rabbi for your jewish or interfaith wedding, look no further: Rabbi Raab is the guy!

  • There are not enough kind words in the dictionary to fully describe Rabbi Michael. I first came to know him several years ago when I contacted him inquiring about converting to Judaism. From that point forward he was there for me every step of the way, guiding me and teaching me along my path to becoming Jewish. He was extremely accommodating and flexible, and he even offered to do most of our lessons via Skype to work with my school schedule. He quickly became more than a Rabbi, and I am now so pleased to call him a friend. He conducted the most beautiful conversion ceremony at the Naples beach and incorporated my family in the process. Once my husband and I became engaged, he was our first phone call…of course we had to have him officiate our wedding! Throughout the planning process he was so helpful and even gave me advice on which vendors to choose (all of whom were incredible). I jokingly refer to him as my “Concierge Rabbi” because he is truly a 24/7 Rabbi….always respond... Read more

  • Shalom Rabbi! We just have to thank you for such a beautiful beautiful ceremony , and a fantastic job with everything, especially your help with organising us in the bridal suite where the venue staff was absent. We were so pleased with our wedding, and received so many compliments from our friends and family on the ceremony specifically!! It was our favourite part of he evening. Chris’s family never saw a Jewish wedding and they absolutely loved it! The prayers, the sand, the ketubah, the singing ,the vows, it was all so magical I couldn’t have asked for anything better. We were truly blessed to have you as our rabbi. So thank you again from our hearts and we hope to speak with you again along our journey. Maybe for the bris!?! (Do you do those?) Much love, mazel and happy new year!! Amy and Chris Taylor

  • This man right here... made our wedding amazing!!!! From the second I met him, I knew he was the one! :-) He was fun, thoughtful, charismatic and everyone said that he was the best officiant they had ever seen! We did not want to write our own vows because we didn’t even know where to start, but he had this ability to have us write some things down and he read it out loud and it was awesome and amazing! Rabbi Michael, you are one-of-a-kind and we are so grateful to have you now as a friend!

  • Rabbi Michael is an amazing person and spiritual leader. He officiated our destination wedding in Naples, FL in November 2017. Not only did he help us with the planning process of the wedding and became our spiritual counselor as well. He helped me with conversion classes making me feel comfortable and at peace. He is soothing, extremely knowledgeable and professional. The ceremony was beautiful, elegant and fun. Being that we had a nice mix of cultures and religions he made everyone feel included. He even helped me in recommending great vendors in the area, this just made the whole planning process and the event complete and flawless. He's funny and very personable, very easy to talk to. We loved him from the first conversation we had with him. You will gain a friend for life, you will not regret having him be part of one of the most important days of your life!!!

  • My husband and I were so lucky to have Rabbi Raab officiate our wedding. I have know him for several years and would not have had anyone else officiate our ceremony. I wanted a very non traditional and quick ceremony, and he delivered just that, but still made it so personal and touching. No matter your religious beliefs, Rabbi Raab will deliver exactly what you want in the best way possible!! Thank you Rabbi for the best experience and ceremony ever!

  • Rabbi Michael is the absolute best! My husband and I were worried about creating a meaningful inter-faith ceremony. We didn't know exactly where to start, but then we reached out to Rabbi Michael Raab and he guided us through the entire process. He was able to help us put together a beautiful ceremony along with our church, and we are so thankful! Rabbi Michael is eloquent, charismatic and professional. We highly recommend him!

  • This man is by far the best, he will be out Rabbi for years to come. Rabbi Rabb is a hit with the guests and couldn't be more of a pleasure to work with. Jewish, interfaith, anything you imagine this man will make you feel like a valued component of his life. I could go on for hours you won't be disappointed you did!

  • Having Rabbi Michael as our Rabbi was the absolute best decision we made in regards to our entire wedding! My now wife and I met Rabbi Michael at an LGBT expo in Tampa almost 4 years ago now. After meeting with him and talking to him, we knew right then and there we had to have him as our Rabbi! So 3 years later I contacted him and booked him for our wedding! We were very excited he was available, and couldn't believe he had remembered us after all of those years and all of the weddings in between! Rabbi Michael is wonderful in every way. He is easy to talk to, responds quickly to emails, texts, and or voicemails, and makes you feel like you are the only wedding couple he is working with. He listens carefully to your wants and needs, and delivers on them. Rabbi Michael made our wedding ceremony exceptional. It was by far the best ceremony I have ever been to, as well as most of our guests. We had a ton of compliments on how wonderful the ceremony was and how wonderful Rabbi Michael was... Read more

  • Michael should be ashamed to call himself a Rabbi. It hurts saying that because I have a lot of respect for Rabbis. This guy charged me $1500 in advance (which is twice the standard rate) and then failed to show up to the wedding! Then he refused to return my money and told me contact his lawyer. Only after I filed Small Claims Court did he agree to pay me back. This guy is a total charlatan. BUYER BEWARE THIS GUY IS A SCAMMER!

    This wedding was on September 9, 2017 in Orlando, Florida.I live in Naples, Florida and the Governor of Florida declared the State of Florida, a State of Emergency due to Hurricane Irma. I informed the couple that I would not be able to officiate their wedding on Thursday,the 7th of September since there was no gas to be bought due to people leaving early already. Loui agreed to my fee of $1500.00. He was reimbursed in full.

  • We LOVED this Rabbi! We had a, as my cousin put it, blending of cultures. I am of German heritage and female. I married my Jewish wife. Rabbi Raab put everyone at ease and was so wonderful. My cousin just told me that she was most impressed by the Rabbi. She is the one who pointed out how varied our group was. We had Hindus, Jewish, Christian, Agnostics, and I don't know what. We also had lesbians, traditional couples, and those who do not agree with two women marrying each other. I did not see the people prior to our service, but my cousin did. She told me it was strained feeling. You had all of these people not having a clue what to expect. But the service was beautiful, and Rabbi Raab was SO friendly and charismatic he made everyone happy. Everyone. He got our names right (and they can be a bit tricky) and even read our adjectives out loud and was just so wonderful. Clearly, I cannot say enough good about having picked Rabbi Raab for our wedding. I would recommend him for e... Read more
