What is the minimum needed for an Askenazi wedding ceremony in the back yard ? My son plans a wedding G_D willing this summer. He does not have a rabbi to officiate and set up what is necessary. He lives in Long Island NY and would like a frum rabbi to arrange and officiate. Can have a few names? thanks
A relative of mine just got engaged and I asked her how they met. She told me that a “matchmaker” introduced her to her fiancé. Is that still practiced today and not just something from Fiddler on the Roof? Thanks.
I have a question for your "Ask the Rabbi" series. At a Jewish wedding the groom places the glass under his foot and smashes it into several pieces. What is the significance of this act? I have a friend who is soon to be married and he asked me this question.
