Jewish Wedding: Highlights Under the Huppah at PAS
Song of the Week • 2m 15s
With Lag BaOmer next week, Jewish wedding season is on! There is not a more beautiful place to stand under the huppah than the sanctuary at PAS. In addition to celebrating the love of the couple, the beautiful ketubah document is signed, the sheva brachot are recited, and finally we remember Jerusalem and break the glass as we wish the happy couple “mazal tov.”
Tradition teaches that the holiness of a huppah has the power to bring healing to the world — may we all benefit from this together. Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom!
Special thanks and mazal tov to Annie and Erik.
