The Traditional Jewish Wedding Meal

| |

As in other Jewish celebrations, Jewish weddings involve festive meals. The food served during the wedding reception will mainly depend on the ethnic origin and historical backgrounds of the Bride and Groom.

  • Know your historical background. Ashkenazi Jews are of European origin and their menu traditionally composes of meats, roast potatoes and vegetables. Sephardic Jews, on the other hand, often serve spicy foods, lamb and rice.
  • Prepare for the challah. Cover the bread and have it blessed before the start of the meal. During the meal, the bride and groom will distribute pieces of the challah to the guests.
  • Choose a kosher dessert. Discuss this with your caterer. You can choose to serve cakes and fruits.
