Under the Chuppah with God

Whenever I officiate at a wedding, I invite my own guest to stand with me under the chuppah.

God chants with me, chuckles with me, whispers the vows with me as together we bestow blessings on the loving couple.

The fuller my relationship with God, the more authentic my rabbinate becomes.

Last week as I witnessed the making of another Jewish marriage, I reached deep
into my spiritual well to create a holy matrimonial memory.

God agitated for love and laughter.

I obliged.
