What is the difference between a Masorti wedding and an Orthodox wedding?

By Masorti Judaism 19th Feb 2021

Most wedding ceremonies in the Masorti movement follow traditional patterns. The couple stand under the huppah (marriage canopy), traditional blessings are recited, a ring is given, a glass is broken at the end. Some couples choose to add innovative elements to their ceremonies while others opt for alternative, non-traditional weddings such as an egalitarian ‘shutafut’ (partnership) ceremony. You can discuss all the options with your rabbi.
