At this challenging time for Jews around the world, we want to focus on love and celebration in our traditions and culture. We want to make it very clear that we desire to see all couples who connect to Judaism in some way and include Jewish elements in their special day. Same-sex unions, mixed-race unions, and people who had a Jewish grandparent but feel connected to Judaism are all welcome.

Submissions must be in no later than Saturday, February 10.
