Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Testimonials for Rabbi Jason Miller


Rabbi Jason Miller - Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Ceremonies
“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 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



“Rabbi Jason made the entire process super comfortable and stress-free for our child. The ceremony was even better than anything we could have imagined. I can’t thank him enough for his genuine warmth and sincerity.”
~ 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 Leslie Wexner – Columbus, 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. He worked closely with another Rabbi we had been working within New York and complemented him, the content, and the meaning of our ceremony and weekend full of activities. 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, New York



“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 Mitzvah’s. I love that they 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 – Royal Oak, 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!”
