Bar / Bat Mitzvah
Finding ones soul mate is perhaps the most important decision that a person will ever make in their lifetime. The union of a man and women is the beginning of a new Jewish family. Marriage requires an investment of love, dedication and energy and the yield can be the development of a warm and happy Jewish home. The wedding ceremony consists of the writing of the Tenaim (marriage conditions) and the Ketubah (marriage contract). The groom must also veil the bride in remembrance of the matriarch Rebecca. Next comes the Chuppah where the actual wedding takes place. Usually the Chuppah is performed under a canopy or taleth. The groom will make the declaration “Behold you are betrothed to me in accordance with the law of Moses and Israel” and will then place the gold ring on the index finger of his new bride. After the ceremony, the family and friends enjoy singing and dancing to celebrate the creation of a new Jewish unit.
