Rabbi Richard S. Winer was born in Lynn, MA, grew up in Peabody, and attended the Boston Conservatory of Music. After college, he went into business with his father, Morris, and later started his own business as a Constable and a Justice of the Peace.
As a Justice of the Peace, Rabbi Winer has officiated hundreds of weddings of all different religions and customs, specializing in interfaith ceremonies.
Through the years Rabbi Winer has had many requests to act as a rabbi or as an officiant for weddings and many life cycle events. Rabbi Winer now finds that he is able to better serve the community as an ordained rabbi.
The rabbi's belief is to support anyone who wishes to find their spiritual self and honors his/her quest in having a rabbi officiate their wedding or life cycle event.
Rabbi Winer lives with his current wife, Lori, and together they have five children and eight grandchildren.
