The Definitive, Completely Up-to-Date Guide to Planning a Jewish Wedding Since its original publication in 1986, The New Jewish Wedding has become required reading, assigned to engaged couples by Conservative, Reform, and Reconstruc-tionist rabbis alike. In this new revision, Anita Diamant, one of the most respected writers of guides to Jewish life, continues to offer step-by-step guidance to planning the ceremony and the party that follows -- from hiring a rabbi and wording the invitation to organizing a processional and hiring a caterer. She also includes:
A new chapter focusing on converts, non-Jews, and same-sex couples
Essential Web sites
All new art, with examples of ketubot, invitations, and other wedding paraphernalia
New poems and new translations of the seven wedding blessings
Complete, authoritative, and indispensable, The New Jewish Wedding is a must-have resource for anyone who wants a wedding that combines spiritual meaning and joyous celebration.
