How much a Rabbi costs?
My fiance and I just had our first meeting with a Rabbi we want to use for our Chuppa ceremony. He is charging us $800 for his services + kantor. I think it's a little outrageous, given that he is not giving us anything (ketubah, wine, etc...). I called a few other rabbi's and all of them told me that they don't have a price and that we can give them anything we want (or not give anything at all). I feel like we are getting advantage of and strongly feel that a spiritual/religions person should not act as a businessman and charge so much. I am wondering how much other people on this website are paying their rabbi's. Thank you.
