We chose to get married in a Halachik Jewish wedding, in front of witnesses, family and friends – this is our tradition and it was important for us to follow it properly.

We also chose not to marry through the Chief Rabbinate. Marriage is a public status, and what is done in public testifies to our values ​​and the norms we are willing to accept. The narrow way that the rabbinate dictates, its preoccupation with who is Jewish enough, and their treatment of women in general – do not fit our values.

Mavoi Satum helped us in the preparation process, and allowed us to have a wedding that fit both our tradition and our values.
