Non-Jewish couples embrace the faith for weddings!
Today I read a story on a couple from New York that are planning on having some not so traditional traditions at there wedding. Have you ever herd of a ketubah? Well, a ketubah is a marriage certificate that uses images and words to express the love and commitment of your marriage vows. While the ketubah has its roots as a Jewish wedding tradition, its beauty has become embraced by couples from all different religions and cultures. I think that it would be absolutely beautiful to have a ketubah at my wedding, whether I am jewish or not.
When the couple first told there parents about the ketubah, they has absolutely no idea what it was. After they explained exactly what a ketubah was, they thought that it was really cool! One of the things that the bride said was, "We love the spirt of it!".
