To plan your wedding with TBI, please contact us several months in advance of your preferred ceremony date.

In its most basic form, a Jewish wedding simply codifies a contract between two individuals. From the standpoint of Jewish law all that is required is for both parties to sign a ketubah (wedding contract) in the presence of two witnesses, or for the groom to give his bride, in the presence of two witnesses, a simple metal ring with words of promise of a life together. Other meaningful rituals include the use of a chuppah (canopy) and the breaking of the glass.

A TBI wedding ceremony may take place either at TBI or in a suitable external location.

A TBI wedding honours Jewish heritage while encouraging couples to express their individuality. Couples learn about the traditional rites, but have the opportunity to adapt them in a personally meaningful way.

We welcome and celebrate all members of our diverse community, including same-sex attracted couples.

For your Jewish marriage, TBI is able to facilitate every step of the way.

After your initial first appointment and your intent to marry has been established, we can also schedule in your aufruf, kiddush and chuppah, and assist you with all of the documentation required for a Jewish wedding.
