Reflecting the many changes in society and in wedding etiquette in the last decade, this new edition of the classic THE NEW JEWISH WEDDING contains more than 30 percent new material, including new illustrations, new translations of seven wedding blessings, and up-to-date advice on interfaith and same-sex ceremonies. Anita Diamant introduces the richness of the Jewish traditions of courtship and marriage with delightful examples from Biblical, Talmudic, and mystical texts and stories. Building on these foundations, she presents sensible, flexible guidelines for planning a wedding tailored to a couple's beliefs and tastes. She suggests ways of marking every stage of the romance with a blend of traditional texts and customs and explains how to find a rabbi, choose a caterer, organise the processional, and more. Samples of both traditional and creatively worded invitations and ketubot (marriage contracts) are provided, along with a selection of poems and prayers that can be incorporated into the marriage ceremony or read at the reception. The comprehensive resource section, substantially expanded for this edition, includes the many resources now available on the Internet.
