Chuppah

In the Jewish tradition the chuppah (canopy) symbolizes the creation of a new home and family and the divine protection and peace spread over a couple joining in marriage. Wendy weaves each chuppah with the intention of love and harmony focusing on each couple’s commitment to one another and the future they are building together during this sacred ceremony.

Chuppah Tallitot

Two “ikat”-style prayer shawls were sewn together for the wedding ceremony and then separated as individual tallitot for the couple’s first blessing as wife and husband.

Tallitot and Tallises

Whether given for a Bat or Bar Mitzvah, wedding, anniversary or spiritual renewal, tallitot / tallises serve as bridges between the spiritual and physical worlds. Wendy’s contemporary prayer shawls make a personal statement of faith and “hiddur mitzvah” – adding beauty to a ritual object to enhance observance. Atarah (blessing band), tzitzit (ritual fringes for the four corners), kippah / yarmulka (skull cap), and a bag are available as well.
