Lauren Stein is the Kohenet you need!
In her role as Hebrew Priestess of Kabbalat Leitzaneet, Lauren facilitated a meaningful series of High Holiday services and workshops. Her powerful voice conveys messages of spiritual substance in a captivating way, and she always personalizes the subject matter of sometimes ancient texts to feel relevant, relatable, and real. Particularly if you are looking to update a tradition to feel more authentic to you, Lauren has a talent for digging down to what's important and representing symbolisms in fresh and exciting ways. At the same time, she also has a profound respect for age-old rituals and honouring the steps that should be taken. A great facilitator!Sent on 04/05/2021

The Lauren Stein Experience
Lauren takes your input -- however wild it may be -- and adapts to the situation. She uses her improv skills to build upon your ideas to do something amazing. I had a board game-themed wedding and she was the MC. I asked that she dress as the Monopoly man, and she delivered! Not only did she do all the typical wedding introductions, but she also hosted the games in character. She is great at connecting and engaging an audience. When you hire Lauren, you are not only just getting a service, but an EXPERIENCE!Sent on 27/05/2021

The Best Wedding We've Ever Had!
When my partner and I were looking for a wedding officiant we knew we wanted someone who would help make our dream wedding a reality, but we weren't sure how to find the right person. Thankfully we had a friend recommend Lauren Stein. This was the start of the best decision me and Brad ever made! Lauren asked exactly the best questions about what we wanted so she could facilitate our dream come true wedding. From the premarital coaching to the playful, fun wedding itself, Lauren helped to officiate a wedding that everyone loved while also sprinkling in the traditional elements me and Brad wanted. To this day, I can't think of a better experience than the one we had with Lauren for our special day. If you're looking for a wedding officiant or are specifically considering Lauren, Lauren has my highest recommendation and you will be so glad you chose Lauren! THANK YOU LAUREN!Sent on 02/04/2021

Professional, Adaptable, and Fun!
I was blown away working with Lauren. I had no idea planning a ceremony could be fun! She was knowledgeable, willing to work with anything we threw at her, and had so many suggestions that made things better. I would recommend her for any occasion!Sent on 02/04/2021

I value humour, playfulness, and curiosity in helping individuals and couples see their unique potential and play with the possibilities when choosing a life that fits them. I love looking at expectations of a traditional wedding and helping couples decide which to incorporate or adapt into their own, and which to subvert or reinterpret. I bring an open-minded and non-judgemental approach, and serve to facilitate important conversations.
I'm a Hebrew Priestess and Sacred Fool, here to honour what makes you unique and bring out the best in people and relationships.
