Wedding Location

Where can weddings be held

The policy of the Minnesota Rabbinical Association affirms that because of the spiritual nature of a Jewish wedding the ceremony may be held only at the synagogue, at home, or in an outdoor public setting such as a park.  Wedding ceremonies are not conducted in hotels or country clubs or private clubs that serve as catering halls.  For the Se’udah Mitzvah (the festive celebratory meal after a wedding) which follows, if not held at Beth Jacob, needs to be either dairy or acceptable fish, or if meat is served needs to be in a place under Rabbinic supervision.  We encourage you to hold your reception at the synagogue, at home or another location where kashrut will be observed.
