About Rabbi Winer Rabbi Richard S. Winer was born in Lynn, and grew up in Peabody, Massachusetts. He attended the Boston Conservatory of Music, and occasionally performs music professionally . After college, he went into business as a Constable and a Justice of the Peace.

"Rabbi, Machelle and I wish to thank you once again for the terrific service that you provided us on the occasion of our wedding. I thought your words were extremely thoughtful and most appropriate for us.

You will be remembered by me as the Rabbi who was early, but because he enjoyed the surroundings so much did not pick up the phone to inform, but rather took in the sea air by the shore. Inspiring by itself and a lesson for all of us on how to capture moments of brief meditation. A metaphor of how to proceed with life, to slow down and enjoy. How appropriate as a preamble to our wedding.

Take care, you will always be in our thoughts. Thank you for your contribution to our happiness.

Richard" Read less

Rabbi Winer was amazingly patient, accommodating, responsive and supportive throughout our entire wedding ceremony planning process. He went above and beyond to meet with us until we had crafted the perfect interfaith ceremony to honor both of our families. He took the time to explain to us all of the Jewish wedding traditions, and also encouraged us to add other elements to make our ceremony unique to fit our personalities. He was always very quick to respond to emails. He was extremely prepared when it came time for the wedding and we are so thankful to have found Rabbi Winer and to have had him be a part of our big day! Could not recommend more highly.

Rabbi Winer married my husband Jason and I July 17th 2016 at the Riverview in Simsbury, CT. Let me tell you..from the second we spoke on the phone before we met, I instantly received a warm welcome and after only a few minutes of conversation, I felt like we've known each other all our lives. When we finally got the chance to meet, we were greeted with notning but kindness, warmth, and true genuine belief that we were in great hands!! And we're we ever!! We met about 5-6 times before the planing and went over every single detail possible. We were asked deep questions about ourselves that really made my husband and I really get to know each other on a completely different level. I just want to add, I am of the Jewish faith and my husband is Catholic. We wanted a Jewish wedding and rabbi Winer was Soooo accepting and accommodating and really catered the wedding to our needs and wants. We fell in love with him!!! Rabbi Winer truly loves what he does and wants notning more than to see love and happiness between couples. He made us feel so loved and cared for. The ceremony was absolutely perfect, he made it so interesting and most importantly, both sides of the family genuinely enjoyed themselves due to the perfect ceremony the rabbi tailored around us. We want to thank him so much for such an AMAZING ceremony and wonderful year of getting to know him. We will definetely be staying in touch!!! You will all be so lucky to have the opportunity to be married by such an incredible, adoring man.

Rabbi Winer is a wonderful man, very warm and welcoming. He performed a beautiful interfaith ceremony for us, traveling out of state to meet our needs. Rabbi opened his home to fit our schedule and lended his ear via phone (and also email) to answer any questions. It was our pleasure to have someone so kind officiate our marriage.

Rabbi Winer was an excellent officiant for our wedding! He is very personable and very easy to talk to. The meetings we had leading up to our wedding were relaxed and enjoyable and we really got to know each other during them which made the ceremony much more personal. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an interfaith or Jewish officiant!

Rabbi Winer is wonderful! We had so many compliments about our ceremony and it was thanks to Rabbi Winer and his lovely wife (and Mazel the dog too)! We felt like Rabbi Winer really took the time to learn about us and he made our ceremony feel very intimate and special. I am Jewish but my husband is not and having an interfaith wedding was something that was made extremely easy with Rabbi Winer. He spent a lot of time customizing our ceremony for the things we wanted and helped guide us in the areas we needed help with. We cannot say enough good about him. Amazing person and the best choice for our wedding!

Hi All,

I honestly cannot say enough great things about Rabbi Winer. He is a great man, and an excellent officiant. He takes the time to get to know you months before the big day. He does this not only to offer words of wisdom on how to maintain a successful marriage but to make sure when the big day comes he is able to speak from the heart about you. He certainly made our day very special. My wife and I came from different religious upbringings and he made our interfaith ceremony beautiful. I am still getting comments from people that it was the most lighthearted, and beautiful ceremony they have even been to. We also had the honor of having Rabbi Winers wife participate in our ceremony which I would highly recommend (she has a beautiful voice). We invited them to stay for the reception and it was a pleasure having them meet and spend time with our families. I know my Niece Gabbi has a friend for life with Rabbi Winer and his dog Mazel.

All in all, I would recommend Rabbi Winer's services to anyone that wants their big day to be special. Thank you for everything.

Best Regards,

Ryan and Melissa

Rabbi Winer and his wife, Lori, performed our wedding ceremony on the beach on July 19th. While Rabbi officiated, Lori chanted the prayers in Hebrew and then one of our guests read the English. It was beautiful and very spiritual all at the same time. Rabbi Winer is a great listener, has a very good sense of humor, and performed the ceremony just as we had discussed. We couldn't be happier, and would highly recommend Rabbi and Mrs. Winer for any ceremony. Thank you again!
