As with all aspects of our relationship, we were looking for the right way to give expression to the beliefs and values that are important to us as a couple, and important to each of us individually.
Bearing in mind that women’s rights are not at the forefront of the rabbinate’s eyes, and that the State of Israel restricts the Jewish wedding to the walls of the rabbinate only, we understood that this is not the way we were seeking.
At the same time, it was important for us to undergo a Halakhic Jewish marriage, as our parents and grandparents got married before us, as Jews around the world marry every day.
Through “Mavoi Satum” we received an answer to all the things that were important to us, with guidance to the halakhic considerations and legal meanings. We were fortunate to experience a ceremony that was meaningful and right for us.
