Since its original publication in 1986, The New Jewish Wedding has become required reading, assigned by rabbis and cherished by couples as “the bible” for planning meaningful, beautiful and personal ceremonies and celebrations. Revised and updated The New Jewish Wedding provides couples – gay, straight, and intermarrying — with options about everything from old/new wording for the invitation, to making a do-it-yourself huppah (wedding canopy) to explaining why the receiving line is not a Jewish custom.
This is not just a “how-to” book but a “why to,” that provides history and context to contemporary choices.
The New Jewish Wedding has generated extraordinary loyalty among readers. One Amazon.com commentator writes, “Not only did my sister-in-law give us a copy when we announced our engagement, but our rabbi made it compulsory reading. My love and I are both grateful that they did. If you only buy one book to help plan your wedding, this should be the one. Mazel Tov.”
