Life cycle

The wedding ceremony (chupah) and funeral (levaya) with its shivah-week of mourning are important occasions in the life cycle. Below you find sheetmusic and recordings of both ceremonies.

Wedding – chupah

Texts of the chupah are written in a special booklet for these occasions and in the LJG-siddur (pp. 580-585). The text of Simeni chachotam (Shir Hashirim – Song of Songs 8:6-7) can only be found in the chupah-booklet (pp. 8-9).
