My spouse is secular, from a secular home and I am a religious from a religious home. It was important for us to get married in a way that would respect both of our family’s traditions. It was important for both of us that we reach the egalitarian level that the law allows, without restrictions that have a political or religious-power background. Beyond that, we do not feel that we align religiously with those who are appointed to the rabbinical institution, and on the contrary – we feel aversion to it. We were looking for a system that could support us in a Halakhic wedding outside the rabbinate, and we found what we desired 🙂
