TESTIMONIALS FOR THE MITZVAH RABBI, RABBI JASON MILLER

 

 

Rabbi Jason Miller - Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Ceremonies

 

“Rabbi Miller has officiated 2 Mitzvahs for us. He is super easy to work with and creates a beautiful, personalized service. He’s fantastic with kids with learning disabilities, anxiety, etc. We had some last-minute vendor issues and the Rabbi went above and beyond to help us solve our problem. Would definitely work with him again!”
-Kimberly Salama – Commerce, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason is amazing!!! We love him! Rabbi Jason built a wonderful relationship with our son, Aidan while he was helping him prepare for his Bar Mitzvah. The Bar Mitzvah at the Grand Canyon was beyond wonderful! We all had a fabulous time and Aidan did great and was very well prepared! I highly recommend Rabbi Jason and am looking forward to using him again for our younger son’s Bar Mitzvah next year!”
-Lauren H. – New York, NY


 

“Rabbi Jason did an excellent job tutoring my son and then conducting his Bar Mitzvah. 2020-2021 has been a challenging year and having a Bar Mitzvah during this time hasn’t been easy. Rabbi Jason developed an excellent working relationship with my son and the service was very nice. It was a worthwhile and rewarding experience that I would recommend to anyone.”
-Alex Sennabaum – Flint, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason is the absolute best. He customizes each Mitzvah to make the Bar/Bat Mitzvah child feel so special. He allows the child to be confident, comfortable and enjoy the whole experience. Our son said his Bar Mitzvah was the best day of his life. A big part of that was due to his relationship with Rabbi Jason.”
-Leslee Schneider – Penn Valley, Pennsylvania (Philadelphia)


 

“As a parent we are entrusted with the challenge of building a good foundation for our child, including a strong religious belief. In these challenging times we reviewed several paths to provide a meaningful Bar-Mitzvah ceremony for our son. From our first meeting Rabbi Jason not only connected with our son, but he connected with us in a very meaningful way. He laid out a very concise plan with flexibility and a meaningful Bar-Mitzvah ceremony. We have never doubted our decision and hope that he is able to bring this joy to many more families.”
-Marc Abusch – Bronx, New York


 

“Thank you so very much for pulling it all together for my son’s bar mitzvah in Atlanta. You brought humor, warmth, laughter, and a genuineness to the service and made Zach feel comfortable and confident!”
-Belinda Marcus – Atlanta, Georgia


 

“We love working with Rabbi Jason. Rabbi Jason Miller has done an excellent job preparing many of my family and friend’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah teens for their upcoming ceremonies. We have personally had the pleasure to work with Rabbi Jason. He is professional yet personable. He is flexible and helps to design a service that fits the needs of the teen and their families. Both his clergy capacity and his technology skills were extremely helpful when we found ourselves scrambling to rearrange our son’s Mitzvah plans during the pandemic. I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience our son had at his Bar Mitzvah due to Rabbi Jason’s willingness to pivot and still honor the traditions important to our family. Rabbi worked with Harrison to make him comfortable, feel confident and make the service personalized and extremely special. We highly recommend Rabbi Jason Miller to many and will continue to do so again & again.”
-Danielle Ruskin – Novi, Michigan


 

“Thank you so much for working with our family over the past few months for our sons’ virtual b’nai mitzvah on Zoom. The boys enjoyed the process and felt confident. You made it stress-free and enjoyable for us and our guests. The service was outstanding! We couldn’t have done it without you. We cannot recommend you highly enough.”
-Lillian and Jeffrey Weinstock – Boca Raton, Florida


 

“Rabbi Jason Miller is the best in my humble opinion. My son had a crazy hockey schedule. Temple just wasn’t an option for us. My son worked for 13 months with Rabbi Jason mostly via FaceTime. He started out dreading it. He quickly changed and looked forward to his sessions with Rabbi Jason. My son enjoyed every session with Rabbi Jason. He did such an amazing job at his service and I was so proud and it was all because of Rabbi Miller. He is such a warm, funny and genuine man. He is now our Rabbi for life. We all adore him and are a little sad it’s now all over. Thank you so much!! I just can’t express enough how amazing you are!”
-Kim and Craig Simon – Birmingham, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason Miller has been so wonderful to our family! We are unaffiliated with a synagogue, but he is our family’s rabbi. He created the most beautiful bar mitzvah ceremony for our son. It was very meaningful and he made it very special. We are so grateful for Rabbi Jason, who will soon be officiating our daughter’s bat mitzvah too!”
-Marcie Weitzman – Bloomfield Hills, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason Miller is a fantastic colleague of mine. I met Jason a few years ago through our seminary when the dean of our school introduced us. It is rare to find a rabbi that is so open-minded, flexible, caring, and passionate about making Bnei Mitzvah experiences as meaningful as possible for children and families. Rabbi Jason is what I would call a “cool rabbi” someone that kids really love working with and he makes Judaism and Jewish learning “cool,” accessible, and fun for his students. We have worked together many times and I could not recommend him more highly. He is a fantastic rabbi, teacher, and colleague. If you want a special and unique experience that you will remember Rabbi Jason is the way to go.”
-Rabbi Danielle Danielle Gobuty Eskow – Online Jewish Learning


 

“Rabbi Jason made our Mitzvah a wonderful experience from start to finish and helped tutor my son through challenges that helped him have an exceptional experience that our whole family was proud of. Rabbi Jason also created a program for attendees, took many pictures, and made the whole experience memorable. He came all the way to Atlanta to be there during our zoom bar mitzvah and led it perfectly from start to finish. We highly recommended Mitzvah Rabbi for your life cycle event!”
-Lee Goldenberg – Fayetteville, Georgia

“Rabbi Jason did an outstanding job! Before the bat mitzvah, he helped prepare our daughter via Facetime and worked diligently with us to create a personalized bat mitzvah siddur (prayer book) for our guests. He did an absolutely terrific job officiating the ceremony. He made my family and all of the guests feel very welcomed with his warm personality. We really enjoyed having him. In addition, he brought along Steve Jarosz, an amazing acoustic guitarist, who filled the room with beautiful music. Together, they created just the right spiritual atmosphere we desired for such a wonderful occasion.”
-Michael and Janis Leinwand – Kalamazoo, Michigan

We are so grateful we met Rabbi Jason at such an important time in our family’s life.”
– Maria and Steve Gluck – Bloomfield Hills, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Miller, you were a huge part of making this weekend so special.  From the kind and supportive advice you gave Jonah in the weeks leading up to his bar mitzvah to the comfortable yet sacred tone you set during the service, we are so grateful that you were part of this event.  Thank you for everything!”
– Dara and Abraham Musher-Eizenman – Toledo, Ohio


 

“Oh my God! We weren’t even sure our son would have a bar mitzvah ceremony and then we were referred to Rabbi Jason. He created the absolute perfect bar mitzvah service. He figured out what would be the most meaningful ceremony for our family and created it. We bonded with Rabbi Jason very quickly and he has become OUR rabbi. We’re so grateful for him and will be recommending him to everyone we know. He made every moment leading up to Ty’s special day so meaningful and we cannot thank him enough. It was meant to be that he was the rabbi who helped us reach the special moment of our son’s bar mitzvah.”
– Cory and Bryan Esterline – Commerce, Michigan


 

“Thank you, Rabbi Jason, for helping me fulfill my dream of having a bar mitzvah. You helped me go far beyond what I thought I was capable of!”
– Jack Behrmann – Howell, Michigan


 

“Thank you to Rabbi Jason Miller for making Aiden’s Bar Mitzvah everything we ever hoped it would be! It was personal, intimate and perfectly tailored to our family’s needs. Rabbi Jason connected so well with Aiden and really made sure that everyone was comfortable with the process. We could not be happier!”
– Tom and Julie Song – Novi, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Miller was just the right person for our son’s Bar Mitzvah. He is a kind, thoughtful, and inquisitive person, and spent a lot of time with us understanding our son’s style, motivation and personality. He worked with us to ensure that we had just the type of Bar Mitzvah ceremony that we wanted. During the Bar Mitzvah, he helped Noah to feel comfortable and also engaged all the participants, both family and friends. His warmth and clear joy during our special celebration made us all feel wonderful. I give Rabbi Miller my highest recommendation.”
– Pam Cohen – Chicago, Illinois

– Lindsay Blau Hords and Brian Hords – Birmingham, Michigan


 

“Les and I and Harry (of course) want to thank Rabbi Jason Miller very much for his extraordinary patience, flexibility and help in our son’s Bar Mitzvah preparations. It was clearly a wonderful day for all of us involved and his contributions were wonderful. It was such a special feeling to have him so warmly welcomed by the Jewish community. Again, we are very grateful to Rabbi Jason.”
– Abigail and Les Wexner – New Albany, Ohio


 

“Anna’s bat mitzvah was perfect thanks to Rabbi Jason. Everybody had a great time and we got so many compliments about the service. People who had been to many other bat mitzvah services said they thought that Anna’s bat mitzvah service was really special and meaningful. Thank you so much Rabbi Jason for making such a great service for us. It couldn’t have been any better!”
– Molly and Brad Schneider – Birmingham, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason officiated all 3 of our kids’ Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. We wanted a unique ceremony that was tailored towards each of our kids as individuals. Not only did Rabbi Jason make it possible for us to do the ceremonies, he also made each one unique and meaningful. He guided our kids to think outside the box and to write wonderful speeches about what was important to them and how it connected them to Judaism and their beliefs. He made them feel comfortable reading their Torah portions as well. Rabbi Jason is very personable and truly cares about helping kids be Bar Mitzvah’d. Our kids easily related to him and I think that’s part of why their ceremonies were so special. He has become more than a Rabbi to us, he is our friend.”
– Amy and Roger Young – Clarkston, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Miller speaks a language that my son understands. And in teaching him others – Hebrew, Judaism, and the larger life lessons – my son could connect in a way that offered them a special bond. I was so impressed with how Rabbi Miller found his place in our complex family and Bar Mitzvah arrangements, one that brought friends and family in from multiple continents and countries. Rabbi Miller led a special tree planting ceremony to close out our weekend. This creative ceremony left our guests (and us) with a feeling of connection, rejuvenation, and hope that hasn’t left us since. I highly recommend him as I believe he can see the things that matter most and find a way to bring them out in the students, the families and the ceremonies. Thank you!”
– Tracie Gorelick – New York / London


 

“Three of my children had the most creative bar and bat mitzvahs because of Rabbi Jason Miller. The services were better than we expected and we still have friends tell us that these were the most meaningful bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies they ever attended. He’s easy to work with and my kids enjoyed the entire experiences. He came to our home to meet with our kids and prepare them for the service. As they’ve moved on to high school they still keep in contact with Rabbi Jason. We’re grateful.”
– Andrea Brown – Birmingham, Michigan


 

“We thought Amanda’s Bat Mitzvah was absolutely awesome (as did she). It was the perfect setting to have a true camp atmosphere. Without Rabbi Jason’s personality and demeanor, we believe that it wouldn’t have been the same. Thank you so much. We would HIGHLY recommend Rabbi Jason!”
– Steve Schlussel and Michelle Baskin – West Bloomfield, Michigan


 

Rabbi Jason served as the Rabbi for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah in Detroit (in 2018). My daughter, Lucie, and I – as well as family and friends – were very pleased with every aspect of his work. He was well-organized and had just the right touch of seriousness, learning, lightness and humor. He was also very good in helping us plan and prepare for the ceremony and all that surrounds it. We couldn’t have made a better choice.
– David Weberman and Miriam Weberman – Farmington Hills, Michigan


 

“Rabbi Jason Miller went above and beyond to orchestrate my daughter’s Bat-Mitzvah.  He created a beautiful service and worked with our family to create a memorable ceremony. My daughter’s Bat-Mitzvah was everything we hoped it would be and more.  We are very proud of her and Rabbi Jason Miller made it all possible.”
– Ellen Rosenthal – West Bloomfield, Michigan


 

“Dear Rabbi Jason: I don’t even know how to begin to thank you for everything. My bar mitzvah was everything I wanted and more. You made it so meaningful from start to finish. While preparing for my Bar Mitzvah I always looked forward to meeting and talking with you. Because of you, my dream Bar Mitzvah in Charlevoix became a reality. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me.”
-Ty Esterline, Commerce, Michigan


 

“I have seen Rabbi Jason Miller officiate at several bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs and I have referred him many many times over the years. I have only heard rave reviews! He is a GEM of a human and is the perfect addition to your family’s mitzvah celebration. He’s an incredible communicator and speaker. I love that the bar and bat mitzvahs are fun to watch, warm and truly personal. Each ceremony reflecting the child and their family so perfectly. Look no further if you need a Rabbi to create a memorable service for your upcoming Mitzvah.”
– Becca Schlussel – Star Trax Events and Entertainment – Royal Oak, Michigan
