Catholic Jewish Wedding Ceremony by Minister

Recommended Posts

I need your suggestions. Mark is Jewish and I'm Catholic, we're doing our legal ceremony at home and our symbolic in Cabo on the beach by a minister. We are trying to incorporate both faiths, we're signing a Ketubah before the ceremony and so far I think we're doing the following:

 

Opening Remarks

Explanation of the Ketubah

Acknowledging Loved ones who have died

General marriage blessings and prayers

Remarks by the officiant

Affirmation of the families and of the guests

Exchange of vows

Exchange of rings

Lighting the unity candle

Closing readings

Breaking of the glass

Kiss

 

Any suggestions, opinions?

 

Thank you for your help

Your ceremony lineup looks great - what specific advice were you looking for? There are lots of other beautiful and symbolic components from the Jewish faith, but it is just a matter of how much you wanted to incorporate.

 

As long as you are working closely with your officiant to create just the right blend of your backgrounds, you will love your ceremony. That is the most important thing.

 

Also - I highly recommend that your officiant explain anything and everything that pertains to a religious tradition or ritual, so everyone feels included.

 

Hope that helps,

Debbi

Hi Debbi,

Here is a helpful tip for you when replying to threads - always check the date the thread was started and when the last post was - if you look up at Sandra's info - you will see that she posted this in February 2008 and her wedding (already happened) was in March 2008.

Thanks,
Alyssa
