History of Chuppah
The word chuppah originally appears in the Hebrew Bible (Joel 2:16; Psalms
19:5). The chuppah represents a Jewish home symbolized by the cloth canopy
and the four poles. Just as a chuppah is open on all four sides, so was the
tent of Abraham open for hospitality. Thus, the chuppah represents
hospitality to one's guests. This "home" initially lacks furniture as a
reminder that the basis of a Jewish home is the people within it, not the
possessions. Historically, in Talmudic times, Jewish weddings comprised two
separate parts, the betrothal ceremony and the actual wedding ceremony.
These two ceremonies usually took place about a year apart. The bride lived
with her parents until the actual marriage ceremony, which would take place
in a room or tent that the groom had set up for her. Later in history, the
two ceremonies were combined and the marriage ceremony started to be
performed publicly. At this new ceremony, the chuppah, or the portable
marriage canopy, was included as a symbol of the chamber within which
marriages originally took place.
In a spiritual sense, the covering of the chuppah represents the presence of
God over the covenant of marriage. As the kipa served as a reminder of the
Creator above all, (also a symbol of separation from God), so the chuppah
was erected to signify that the ceremony and institution of marriage has
divine origins.. The "chuppah" may also represent the home
of Abraham and serve as a reminder that he was a foreigner in a strange
land, looking for the place God had promised to him. Before going under the
chuppah the groom covers the bride's face with a veil, known as the badeken
(in Yiddish). The origin of this tradition is in the dispute of what exactly
is the chuppah. There are opinions that the chuppah means covering the
bride's face, and that by this covering the couple is to be married. Thus,
some insist that the marriage witnesses also see this act of covering, as it
is a formal part of the wedding. The groom enters the chuppah first to
represent his ownership of the home on behalf of the couple. When the bride
then enters the chuppah it is as though the groom is providing her with
shelter or clothing, and he thus publicly demonstrates his new
responsibilities toward her. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
