In traditional Jewish literature marriage is actually called kiddushin,
which translates as "sanctification" or "dedication."
This tapestries show the Jewish Ketuba and the Jewish Chupah in its unique culture and character.
"Sanctification," indicates that what is happening is not just a social arrangement or contractual agreement,
but a spiritual bonding and the fulfillment of a mitzvah, a Divine precept.
"Dedication," indicates that the couple now have an exclusive relationship,
that involves total dedication of the bride and groom to each other,
to the extent of them becoming, as the Kabbalists state, "one soul in two bodies."
