Change is inevitable. This is evident today in not only with the technological improvement but also the intertribal and also interfaith marriages. Traditional is important and we ought to uphold ours hence the reason as to why making clear to your partner on some of the vital ones as stated and embraced in your community is important. A marriage journey especially the one that brings together two different communities is not an easy venture as it sounds. There ought to be a deep understanding of the two communities, especially by the couples to avoid bridging some traditional information considered vital. Discussed are some of the things you are likely to come across in Jewish and Christian Wedding Rabbi.

Consider the arrangement of that procession. In the Christianity marriages, the groom is not supposed to walk down the aisle but is expected to wait at the front with the groomsmen and the clergy. After the bridesmaids enter, the bride will then come in with the father and handed to the husband meaning the woman is now being passed from one man to another. Afterward the mother of the bride is processed in, and the ceremony commences.

With the Jew ceremonies, the function commences with huppah bearers. The rabbi will then enter the venue. After then is when the groom and the groomsmen will enter the building with the parents of that groom. The last group to entering will be that of these bridesmaids and her parents before the ceremony commences. The marriage procession matters to each of the couple and hence they should be in agreement with what should be followed.

Inquire about how they take their vows. The Jews would normally record their vows in the ketubah, and they will not be recited by the couple rather they would be read to the congregation. The Christians would, however, recite their vows in front of that church and the clergy. They will say their vows and close them by saying I do.

The place where the event takes place differs in both ceremonies. In the Christian ceremony, the church the couples attend plays a big role in the selection of the place e. G. If they are Catholics then the place will be in the church then followed by a reception in a serene place. On the contrary, Jewish ceremonies are done in the synagogue or an open-air area only.

Look at the aspect of lighting a unity candle. In most Christian weddings, lighting candles is a common phenomenon. The mother of the couple will light each of those candles and then take to each of these couples to light together one single unity candle. That is not a traditional ritual among the Jews. However, candles are significant in most Jews practice and hence will not be an offense.

The pronouncement that is made after the making of those vows and signing of that document that you are now publicly husband and wife are only among Christians. The Jews do not make such an announcement after the ceremony. However, this is acceptable to most of the Jews and will not be an offensive message.

Jews have a vital glass breaking ritual which is not known among the Christians who take such an incidence negatively. Thus, it is important for them to know and respect the ritual too.
