This collection includes items that are typically included in the ceremony itself:
- The Chuppah or wedding canopy, dates back to the tent-dwelling Jewish nomadic days in the dessert. Its temporary structure and openness recalls the tent of the biblical Abraham who kept his tents open on all sides so that visitors would know they were welcome. The Chuppah creates an intimate, sanctified space and symbolizes the home you and your partner will build together during your marriage.
- There are countless interpretations for the tradition of breaking glass, among other things: a symbol of the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem; a representation of the fragility of human relationships; and a reminder that marriage changes the lives of individuals forever. It's also the official signal to shout, "Mazel Tov!"
- Joy and Celebration, as the wedding couple is wrapped in a talit as a symbol or creating a new life together. A talit can also used as a Chuppah-Wedding Canopy creating a new home together.
