What does a Jewish marriage mean?
Jewish marriage is the cornerstone of the Jewish family. Traditionally, marriage is called Kiddushin, which means “sanctifications”. This term alone sums up the quintessence of Judaism: no single religious life, no break with the world.
It is at the heart of the community, within men, that faith takes all its meaning, to accompany us in our spiritual journey. teaching us the wise teach us “Whoever lives alone, lives without blessing“. In marriage, man and woman become true blessings for each other, loving each other, helping each other, sharing their day to day, and supporting each other.
What role does the Rabbi play?
At the wedding, the couple begins building an altar before the Lord. The ceremony under the nuptial canopy, Hoppa, is the first stone. The rabbi is the best guide for the young couple, his closest to being a marriage consultant. He helps the young couple to prepare this special day, in accordance with religious rules.
How does it guarantee harmony?
The marital life, in all its aspects, as intimate as they are, is in the image of the sanctification of Gd. The body, mind and soul contribute together to this divine service. The harmony between the husband and his wife is then sealed by the laws of family purity, Taharat Hamichpa’ha, according to the will of the G-D. Happiness is transmitted. Thus, marital equilibrium contributes to the well-being of the offspring and the relatives of the spouses.
