Planning Your Jew-ish Wedding: Seven Blessings Just for You – Online
May 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT$15
Seven Blessings Just for You
Are you engaged and looking for a way to personalize your Jew-ish wedding ceremony? Join Molly Kazin Marshall and Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe for an interactive workshop exploring the traditional sheva brachot (seven blessings—a Jewish wedding ceremony ritual), and creating a custom version with your partner to use in your wedding, your anniversary, your original wedding date that had to be postponed—you name it!
The seven blessings are one of the most recognizable parts of a Jewish wedding, and in this workshop, Rabbi Malka will teach about the traditional blessings and guide couples in a creative process to write seven blessings of their own. In addition to the device you join us with for this Zoom workshop, couples should come prepared to write with pencil/pen and paper.
This session is part three of a four-week series on planning your Jewish/interfaith wedding. Register for one session, a few, or all four! Individual sessions are $15/couple. Register for all four events at a discounted price of $45/couple.
