BEDEKEN – Veiling of the Bride
Before the Chupah ceremony, Yitchok, escorted by his father and (about to become) brother-in-law, and accompanied by relatives and friends, goes forward to veil the bride.
Before the Chupah all knots on the groom’s garments are untied. All jewlery is removed.
This symbolizes that at the moment of marriage all other bonds are eliminated, except this intimate one made between the bride and groom.
Yichud time – the first moments that the bride and groom are alone together.
Yitchok’s Father and 2 of his 9 sons! Wow!!
