Library Journal - Library JournalIn the United States today, some 40,000 couples enter interfaith (Jewish/Christian) marriages each year, and the trend is increasing. Compiled by the editor of "Dovetail: A Newsletter by and for Jewish/Christian Families" (LJ 5/15/94), this eminently practical guide helps couples plan a wedding ceremony that will reflect their own differing religious backgrounds, traditions, and beliefs and also be sensitive to the beliefs and traditions of their parents, other relatives, and guests. Included are pointers on choosing an offciant or officiants as well as suggested vows, blessings, benedictions, and musical selections. Seven actual interfaith ceremonies are given, with comments by the main participants. This is an excellent addition to public library collections.Marcia G. Welsh, Guilford Free Lib., Ct.

Interfaith Wedding Ceremonies based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
My fiancee and I have read almost 10 books on interfaith marriages, and this by far is the best I have found. It help to intertwine the two religions into a beautiful ceremony. We wrote our own ceremony with the help of this book and we can't wait for the wedding date!
