Jewish Traditional Wedding Music

Below is our repertoire list for your Jewish Wedding Ceremony. There are often two processional pieces to choose. One processional is for the entrance of the Rabbi, your family, the groom and his parents, and bridal attendants, and the other is for the entrance of the Bride and her parents. Occasionally the Rabbi will vocalize through his entrance, and then the quartet will begin playing afterwards. Once the bride approaches the Chuppah she will circle the groom. The Rabbi may choose to vocalize this part as well or the quartet will continue their music throughout the circling. Generally there is no music played during the ceremony but often times the Rabbi or cantor will sing during this part. At the end of the ceremony the Groom will stomp on the glass and that signals the Recessional where your guests will often times clap and sing along. We always advise our Jewish couples to consult with your Rabbi to see determine if they would like specific pieces played for certain parts of the ceremony. It may be helpful to print the list below and bring it to your meeting.
