A Jewish wedding actualizes the most transformational event in a person’s life. Because of the meaning and momentousness of the occasion, the Jewish wedding ceremony entails many customs and rituals, a totally unique experience that remains with the bride and groom for their entire lives. These customs originate from a rich blend of historical and spiritual underpinnings, representing a tradition that has roots in both the marriage of Adam and Chavah (Eve) and the “national marriage” of God and the Jewish People at Mount Sinai (Berachot 61a; Pirkei D’Rebbi Eliezer 41). This first first class addresses the engagement through the signing of the ketubah (marriage contract) and the bedeken (veiling ceremony). The second class discusses the steps from the chuppah to the Sheva Berachot.
