The Modern Jewish Wedding Details We’re wrapping up our week of Tu B’Shevat (the Jewish holiday celebrating the New Year for trees, and very good wine) inspired posts with a vintage backyard summer wedding. What is today’s special Modern Jewish Wedding touch?  We’re glad you asked.  It’s the Ketubah signing.  Done in front of all the guests at this intimate affair, underneath the chuppah.
