New Section: Jewish Marriage

A new section recently unveiled on Chabad.org is "Jewish Marriage - Becoming One". This section is focused entirely on Judaism's take on love, relationships and the ultimate act of devotion, getting married.

The launch of the new section corresponded with Tu B'Av, the day in 1188 BCE that Jewish tradition marks as the end of a civil war between the tribe of Benjamin and the rest of the Jewish people. A decree banning intermarrying with the tribe was then lifted. The 15th day of the Hebrew month of Av was also when preparations for all of the wood for use in the Holy Temple for the following year was completed.

At this site you can peruse a wealth of material, from rabbinical advice to a wedding handbook outlining all of the traditional elements of a marriage ceremony, complete with a checklist and guidelines. There's even a section devoted to married life itself.

The site presents the reader with three "portals" depending on the reader's interests and situation: "Finding your Soulmate" for those that are looking to marry; "The Wedding" on how a Jewish Marriage ceremony itself is conducted, and more; and finally "Married Life" - how to enhance your union with spiritual and practical tips, with the special mitzvot of marriage, and by understanding the spiritual infrastructure of your relationship revealed in the teachings of sages and the kabbalistic masters.

This new section can be accessed via: www.Chabad.org/Marriage
