.Jewish Wedding Cereponys part 2 The Chuppa The entire wedding is conducted beneath the chuppah, representing the shelter and privacy of the home the bride and groom will create following their marriage. The home is central in Jewish life – it is the place where we grow up and learn to share love. You will see that in this symbolic home the bride and groom stand at its center and the walls are formed by their families. Just as the ‘walls’ of the chuppah – that is our families and friends – provide support and strength with their love. Giving of the ring Following the blessing, the groom will give the bride a ring. The words ‘ by this ring you are consecrated to me according to the law of Moses and Israel form the essence of the marriage service. Ketubah Following the giving of rings the ketubah ( marriage certificate ) is read aloud for the congregation to hear, attesting that the marriage has taken place. The ketubah is in Hebrew and is signed by both the bride and groom.
