Jewish wedding. A Jewish wedding ceremony is not just the beginning of a new life together
for the lucky couple, but the continuation of a chain of tradition that began with our Patriarch
Avrohom and his beloved wife Sara. In addition, the marriage ceremony reflects the marriage
and the Jewish people that took place on Mount Sinai. Needless to say, every
act is filled with beauty and profound significance. The ceremony occurs under a wedding
canopy that symbolizes G-d’s protection and favor. While many religious institutions have their
own canopy, some people spread a large talis over the couple, while others prefer to purchase
one as a keepsake and family heirloom. Whatever your decision, Judaism.com can help.
