“From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, a single brighter light goes from their united being.” - Baal Shem Tov

It would be my privilege to work with you on creating a warm, unique and inclusive ceremony that reflects your values and love.

I officiate at Jewish, Interfaith, Cross Cultural, Same Sex and non sectarian wedding ceremonies as well as Baby Namings, Pet Memorials, and special Anniversary Celebrations.

When appropriate, I am happy to co-officiate with clergy of other faiths.

It is my pleasure to serve Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and areas in North Carolina. As well, I am available for destination weddings.

Again, it would be my privilege to guide you as you begin the exciting journey leading up to your wedding.

I am happy to perform wedding services for:
▪ Jewish couples ▪ Interfaith couples ▪ Same-sex couples


I look forward to hearing from you! I may be reached at 804-335-4041 or through Jewishheartandsoul.com. Read less

Rabbi-Cantor Annie Bornstein and I recently co-officiated at my niece's wedding at the University of Virginia Chapel. It quickly became a warm and wonderful collaboration as we crafted a ceremony that honored the religious traditions of a Jewish - Christian union, and of course, the wishes of the couple. All of us were deeply moved by Annie's beautiful voice chanting of the Seven Wedding Blessings and her stories and explanations of the Jewish wedding customs which were part of this service. The result was a beautiful ceremony and a lovely memory for the couple, their families and friends.

Rabbi Annie is wonderful! She is extremely thoughtful and caring, and a really good listener. She is also very helpful leading up to the wedding, providing different options and thoughts for the ceremony, and even books to read up on. We had so many guests tell us about what a beautiful ceremony we had - something guests don't normally emphasize! We couldn't have been happier and we intend to keep in touch with her! We definitely recommend Rabbi Annie 100%!

Rabbi-Cantor Annie was an amazing officiant. She was warm, friendly, accommodating to our special wishes, and sang with the most beautiful voice that gave our chuppah an extraordinary atmosphere. We cannot recommend her highly enough! Toda raba and chibukim!

Rabbi Annie Bornstein worked closely with us to put together a meaningful ceremony that represented both our Jewish and Christian backgrounds and brought our families together as one. She was flexible and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her as an officiant for multi-faith weddings.

Where to begin? We wouldn't want to make you verklempt again, so we'll try to keep it short and not too overflowing with emotion, but it won't be easy. You were great. Just great. Such a huge heart, a sharp mind, and your voice? Holy s*&%^&! Hearing it ring, echoing through the hills, seeing the deer running from the sound, being told of the horses behind us, stiffening their necks with attention at your song and hearing from everyone- but we mean everyone, but we mean, seriously everyone, who told us how amazing the ceremony was and that it was the best ceremony they'd ever been to, you can't imagine what that means to us.

We were told by a judge who performs weddings regularly that this was the best ceremony she'd ever seen. We were told by the photographer who shoots weddings every weekend that this was the best ceremony he'd ever seen. We were told by a mother that this was the best ceremony she'd ever seen- that she'd liked her own daughter's wedding and all, but that this was through the roof. Most importantly of all perhaps, though, we both heard from each other how blessed we feel to have stumbled on you by accident via a google search or two and to have instantly fell in love with you, and to agree without any reservation, that the ceremony very simply just kicked ass.

love, andros and kennis

I can't even put into words the experience Ben and I had with Rabbi Bornstein. She is one of the most amazing people I have met and quickly became one if my favorite people to work with for our wedding. She was extremely flexible and scheduled skype sessions with us to really get to know eachother.

We received so many compliments about our wedding-most about our rabbi and how kind and heartfelt her words were. She is a wonderful person, an incredible rabbi and now-a dear friend.

We used Rabbi Cantor Annie for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah and couldn't have been happier with her services. Instead of going through the traditional Hebrew School, our daughter skyped several times a month with Rabbi Annie. She worked really well with our daughter and our daughter was able to pick up the Hebrew in a stress free environment and she did beautifully. Scheduling was pretty flexible- it is always hard to match up schedules exactly but we both made it work.

For the service, she arrived on time (even with several mishaps in the morning) and performed a beautiful service. She was patient and kind, she has a lovely singing/chanting voice, and the service came from her heart. We would highly recommend Rabbi Annie to anyone looking for a Rabbi for a wedding or Bat/Bar Mitzvah or any lifecycle event.

Rabbi Annie is quite simply amazing! Our co-officiated wedding was extremely unique. My husband's father is a Southern Baptist Minister, and he was the other officiant. Rabbi Annie was extraordinarily understanding of the fact that this ceremony was very special to the other officiant. Through this understanding, we had a flawlessly integrated ceremony that celebrated both faiths beautifully. I know that Rabbi Annie will be a part of our lives as we continue to integrate and celebrate Judaism as a part of our interfaith family!
