Chuppah under the stars


It's interesting to note the tension in Judaism between our biblical opposition to superstition and omen-reading, and our love of 'good signs' and their psychological benefits.

"Some say we should hold the chuppah under the heavens, as a good sign that the couple's children should be as the stars in the heavens."

(Rama, Shulchan Aruch Even haEzer 61:3)

Have a great day,
