Weddings at Bet Ha'am

The Jewish ceremony of marriage is called Kiddushin, which means holiness. The linking of two lives together is a sacred moment in Jewish tradition, which occurs in the presence of witnesses who make the union of the loving couple valid in Jewish law. Taking place under the chuppah, a wedding canopy, a couple makes a pledge of commitment to one another in accordance with the traditions of Judaism, symbolized through the exchange of rings.

As a Reform congregation, Bet Ha’am believes that the union of two loving people of any gender is worthy of celebration. Our beautiful sanctuary is an ideal location for this integral moment in the life of a couple, and we welcome the opportunity to provide a sacred space in which to celebrate your union. If you are planning a Jewish wedding, please contact Rabbi Saks to inquire about having your ceremony at Bet Ha’am. In the meantime, mazel tov, congratulations!

I’m interested!
