    Jewish Heart and Soul—Rabbi-Cantor Annie Bornstein


Rabbi Bornstein brought a warmth and beauty to the service that was incomparable. When she was speaking to our daughter, it was as if she were the only person in the sanctuary (and there were 200+ there). Her words were inspiring and her delivery was memorable. Her voice/singing was amazing and provided a deeply spiritual ambiance for everyone. It was a beautiful service and one I will remember with love and warmth always.

My husband and I contacted Rabbi Annie last year to inquire about her services to prepare our granddaughter for her Bat Mitzvah. Immediately upon meeting her, we knew how fortunate it was that our paths had crossed.

Rabbi Annie began preparing her in small increments that gave her the needed confidence to gain a strong grasp on the Hebrew required. She also gave her the necessary knowledge of the history behind the prayers and traditions.

In the practical sense, Rabbi Annie was upfront with all the costs and time commitments involved. She was always punctual and prepared. As a 12 year old, our granddaughter found it easy to relate to her and she enjoyed sharing all aspects of her life with her during her sessions. She knew that she would find a good listener when she told her about school projects and her beloved dance competitions!

Last night’s service was incredible. Rabbi Annie’s gentle guidance and beautiful voice only enhanced the proud evening as we observed our granddaughter becoming a bat mitzvah. Rabbi Annie customized her words with meaningful quotes from legendary dancers in a way that was so ideal for her. She made a marvelous evening extraordinary.

With no hesitation, I would recommend Rabbi Annie’s services. Many people come into our lives but not everyone comes and stays. Certainly Rabbi Annie is one of those people.

Rabbi Annie was an absolute joy to work with. She had a wonderful demeanor and was so easy to work with. She was fast at communicating and getting all the details set for our daughter's Hebrew baby naming. Even right before the service as things started to get a bit overwhelming and even a bit chaotic Rabbi Annie was warm and calming. I recommend her highly. We were so happy with her services that we want her to be the Rabbi for our son's Bar Mitzvah.
