How will you integrate Jewish customs, rituals and traditions into your daily lives?
Begin by communicating with one another. This will be an ongoing process. The decisions you make today are not cut in stone.
As your lives grow, shift and change the way you choose to practice your Jewish religion will change and shift with you.
Will you set aside time for Shabbat dinners? Will you be part of a congregation, visit a mikveh, or learn to speak Hebrew? Will you keep a kosher diet? How about your children? Will they go to religious school and someday be called to the bimah for their bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah? How will you celebrate Jewish holidays?
Now that you have those wonderful wedding gifts, maybe it's time to learn how to make your grandmother's noodle kugel, kreplach, or matza ball soup.
The Jewish customs and traditions you chose to practice will enrich your lives.
