What is a chuppah?
What is a chuppah anyways? A chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy) is a beautiful wedding tradition that symbolizes the home the couple will build together. A chuppah is open on all four sides, welcoming the community to be part of the couple's new life together.
What are the requirements for a chuppah? A chuppah should have four poles and a fabric "roof." The fabric can be made from just about anything. Traditionally, a cherished family tallit (prayer shawl) is often used. Some couples use a family heirloom, such as a tablecloth or blanket. Another popular choice is to buy a chuppah from the artist. After the wedding, you can hang the chuppah in your home for a beautiful daily reminder that surrounded you on your wedding day?
