hi there, fiance and i are having a culturally jewish wedding (i’m jewish, he is anti-religion but ok with jewish ceremony as long as he doesn’t have to acknowledge god) and want to write our own ceremony, using the traditional jewish cermony as our base. Anyone have any transcripts or examples of the actual ceremony they’d be willing to share? much appreciated!

Check out “the new jewish wedding” by anita diamant – it should be very helpful for this purpose!

Are you having a rabbi or other Jewish officiant for your ceremony? If so, I’d suggest talking with him or her for ideas. We are doing an interfaith ceremony with all the Jewish traditions but wanted to “downplay” the references to the Jewish people and G-d in order to be more inclusive. Our officiant is a reform rabbi who happily does interfaith ceremonies, and he’s been enormously helpful about coming up with language and ways of doing things that we’re comfortable with.
I skimmed “The New Jewish Wedding” but found it to be pretty traditional and not terribly useful for us. You might also check out the Interfaith Family website which has some good resources.

@spring-bride: thanks – we are not having a rabbi – we are actually going to use either a family member or a good friend of the family, hence the needing to do some research to develop the script for them. appreciate the website rec!
