Say “Jewish wedding” and everyone has a memory and story about a specific joyous celebration that they loved. Jewish weddings have evolved thoughout history and are central to our rich Jewish life. “My Beloved is Mine: Jewish Wedding Rituals, Stories and Sacred Objects” exhibits historic 19th century Ketubbot from Jewish communities in Afghanistan, Persia (Iran), Italy, and Uzbekistan, as well as modern and contemporary Ketubot from The Temple Museum collection. Beautiful wedding gowns from the Weidenthal/Saltzman and Rosenfield/Hardis families and many other special objects from Temple congregants share intimate family wedding stories.The Temple chuppah structure is featured, covered with a silk chuppah top, designed and hand painted by Temple congregant Sally Price Ross.
Many thanks to the Museum Committee, who together created this exhibit.
