seizing the moment

Some moments in life are more meaningful than others. They require to be shared with family and friends in a special atmosphere. A ceremony that expresses invisible links, secret hopes, uncontainable joy and deep gratitude is what the Jewish wedding is designed to do.

Let’s Make Your Ceremony Special

Marriage in 21st century Judaism is a sublime promise between two human beings in love with each other.

Matrimony initiates not a mere change of lifestyle, but an opening into a dimension of existence that is incomparable to any other. Each spouse becomes acutely aware of the other’s wants and their role as a couple.

The promise to be sensitive to the other’s needs as one would be to one’s own; the opening of trust that allows for shared intimacy; and,  the understanding that marriage is far from being solely a private affair, opens a new world guided by a principle that Judaism calls “hesed.”

The untranslatable word “hesed” encapsulates all those interpersonal character qualities that Judaism considers to be the highest in life: Love, respect, care, trust, loyalty.

Whereas in the past Jewish weddings were rituals sealing a legal transaction, in the 21st century the Jewish marriage ceremony is designed to express a couple’s inner feelings,  their highest values and deepest hopes.

The Jewish wedding ceremony is a joyous and transcendental experience that calls for anticipation, awe and reverence.

The Huppah
