Chabad Custom: Walking Over a Silver Spoon at a Wedding


Why does Lubavitch walk over a silver spoon at a wedding?

  1. According to “Minhagei Chabad,” the reason is that the wedding ring used to be made of silver – “kesef” in Hebrew. It is similar to the Hebrew word “kosef,” which means yearning and love. Because most people use gold rings today, the silver spoon represents this same affection.
