Marriage

Marriage

When a member of our community becomes engaged, we joyfully mark the occasion on Shabbat morning with a special call-up for the engaged man or for the father or another male relative of the bride-to-be.

Prior to the wedding, the bride can partake in a “Shabbat Kallah”, where the family celebrates in the synagogue with special honours. Similarly, the groom participates in an Aliyah, being called to the Torah, alongside his relatives and Friends.

The week following the wedding, which is known as “Shabbat Hatan”, the newly wedded couple are treated like a Queen and King, as they join the community to welcome them as a couple, into the synagogue, community and the Jewish people. This is celebrated with a Bracha after the service.

A wedding held at our Synagogue is an extraordinary event, renowned for its ambiance and atmosphere. Many families have entrusted us for generations with their wedding ceremonies. Our Rabbi personally meets with the couple to understand their love story, ceremony preferences, and offer guidance. Lesson’s are provided for the groom, while the Rubisa (Rebbetzin) instructs the bride. During the ceremony under the chuppah, the Rabbi delivers a heartfelt address. Our dedicated office staff assists in coordinating all arrangements and provides guidance on necessary paperwork, ensuring a seamless process for the couple
