Before The Jewish Wedding


“Tena’im” is the actual Yiddish name for an engagement.In the culture, it carries a great deal of weight, and even more so than the American culture. It binds you in the realm of a legal Jewish status. There is a signing that takes place at what the Jewish people refer to as “the groom’s table”. The reading of the “Tena’im” is given either by a dear friend of the groom’s or a Rabbi.

Te’naim is a contract between the parents of the bride and groom.

It reverts back to the third century C.E.; It is predominantly done through the orthodox custom.


Eirusin refers to the ring being given. In essence, the bride cannot wed anyone else.


Kiddushin means the ring is now accepted.


Nissuin refers to the couple sharing a home together.
