"Diamant is a treasure. She has become teacher and sage to thousands. The New Jewish Wedding was great before--now it is essential."--Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, Dean, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies
"An extraordinary revision of an extraordinary book--the first and still best guide to what every couple should think about in planning a Jewish wedding."--Rabbi Lawrence Hoffman, Professor of Liturgy, Hebrew Union College and cofounder of Synagogue 2000
"In a thoughtful and sensitive reworking of her wonderful guide to Jewish marriage, Anita Diamant shows us, once again, that her finger is firmly on the pulse of American Judaism in all its aspects. Inclusive, accessible, and enjoyable to read, Diamant's work now offers an expanded, updated treatment of the questions all Jews ask when they marry: from the rabbi to the reception to the reality of life afterwards. If you are a couple with wedding plans, the parent of a bride or groom, or simply a person interested in delving into the subtle beauty of our tradition, it is hard to imagine a better book than this to accompany you on your journey."--Rabbi Aaron D. Panken, Dean, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, New York
"I am very impressed by this book--by the air of openness and spirituality that pervades its pages. It's a 'how-to' book of the highest quality, for in essence it teaches us how to prepare for and experience the loveliness and sanctity of one of life's most glorious moments: the wedding."--Chaim Potok
"This is a special book, the product of excellent research, spiritual sensitivity, and the author's genuine empathy for the reader. It is complete, informative, and thoroughly enlightening. Instead of giving directions, it gently provides options. It makes me envy anyone who is planning a wedding. I wish it had existed when my wife and I were planning ours."--William Novak, coauthor of Iacocca
"This book glows with love of Judaism."--Susannah Heschel, editor of On Being a Jewish FeministSee all Editorial Reviews
