From Henna To Honeymoon: Personalizing A Jew-ish Wedding (4 sessions)

Planning your wedding ceremony? Performing a wedding for others? Curious about ritual, ancient and modern? Join Rabbi Getzel to deeply explore the ancient form of Jewish weddings and how they can be adapted to meet modern values and families. All are welcome regardless of Jewish background, observance or relationship status. All will leave with a basic knowledge of how to craft a wedding ceremony and tips for how to make the wedding sacred, meaningful, and fun.

From Henna To Honeymoon is the first part of ZIVUG: Envisioning Your Wedding and Marriage, along with ZIVUG: Transition to Marriage. Couples are welcome to register for and attend either the combined course or either class separately.

Rabbi Getzel Davis works with couples both individually and in groups to envision, plan, enrich and repair their partnerships at all stages of their lives together. In addition, he serves as a rabbi and chaplain at Harvard University and is a certified trainer of other clergy in Prepare-Enrich premarital counseling. In addition, he founded Unorthodox Celebrations, which has, since 2016 helped almost 3000 Jews (and those who love them) find inspiring and relatable officiants for their weddings, bnei mitzvah, and baby namings.
