The number seven also symbolizes the wholeness and completeness that they cannot attain separately.
The kallah then settles at the chatan's right-hand side.
The dawning wedding day heralds the happiest and holiest day of one's life.
This day is considered a personal Yom Kippur for the chatan (Hebrew for groom) and kallah (bride), for on this day all their past mistakes are forgiven as they merge into a new, complete soul.
Wine, a symbol of joy in Jewish tradition, is associated with Kiddush, the sanctification prayer recited on Shabbat and festivals.
Marriage, called Kiddushin, is the sanctification of a man and woman to each other.
As on Yom Kippur, both the chatan and kallah fast (in this case, from dawn until after the completion of the marriage ceremony).
The tallit is then held by four young men over the head of the chatan and kallah.] Two cups of wine are used in the wedding ceremony.
In Jewish law, a marriage becomes official when the chatan gives an object of value to the kallah. The ring should be made of plain gold, without blemishes or ornamentation (e.g.
stones) ― just as it is hoped that the marriage will be one of simple beauty.
Now comes the reading of the ketubah (marriage contract) in the original Aramaic text.
The ketubah outlines the chatan's various responsibilities ― to provide his wife with food, shelter and clothing, and to be attentive to her emotional needs.
[Sefardim do not have the custom to fast and wear a kittel.] It is customary for the chatan and kallah not to see each other for one week preceding the wedding.
