Marriage by Document

By Benj Kamm, Elizabeth Richman, Ben Dreyfus, Emma Kippley-Ogman

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, June 2010

The authors, two couples, describe their processes of studying the laws of Jewish marriage and what they decided to do for their marriage ceremonies and documents. The central text of these documents, similar to the central text of most kiddushin, is, "You are hereby sanctified to me with this document according to the law of Moses and Israel." How we understand this law continues to evolve and grow.
