Couple Reinterprets the Sheva Brachot

Why not recreate the Sheva Brachot? When Miriam and Babak got married on top of a mountain at sunset, they re-examined all of the ancient Jewish wedding traditions and found personal twists to add. One powerful reinterpretation was a water ceremony created by Miriam and Babak to represent the Sheva Brachot (שבע ברכות‎ literally “the seven blessings”), traditionally chanted beneath the chuppah during a Jewish wedding ceremony.


This project was made possible with generous support from The Koret Foundation, as part of its Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.
