The Chupah

The Chupah

"In honor of the marriage of Rebecca to Harry on the 15th of Tamuz, 5772 - July 5, 2012"

The choson stands tall, his eyes closed, deep in prayer,

The kallah circles around him, her gown sweeping the air.

Candles burn brightly held aloft by parents solemn and proud,

While generations of ethereal ancestors stand silently amidst the crowd.

 

The entourage completes the last circle; she comes to stand at his right,

Together they prepare to greet the future, filled with promise so bright.

They sanctify themselves to each other with words ancient and holy

Their hearts and souls join as one, belonging to one another, solely.

 

Every eye is focused upon them, wishing them a wonderful life

Blessings of happiness are sung for this brand new husband and wife.

May Hashem smile upon them always, fill their lives with revealed good

May their every prayer be heard on High and answered, as it should.

 

The glass is placed upon the floor, the choson stomps with all his might

At no other time does something broken become such a joyous sight!

Mazel Tov! Mazel Tov! The music blasts loud and clear

A new life has begun! May it be filled with peace and good cheer.
