a bit more about those experiences

There is something truly beautiful about both the spiritual and cultural traditions in Judaism. The religion I grew up with (some bizaar mix of an evangelical/presbyterian/Korean world) didn't really have that. Early on, I was swept away by the festivities of the night. The groom dancing out in an entourage of friends and family to greet his wife before the ceremonies. The bride walking around the groom seven times in a promise of love and support. And the blessings sung to the happy couple thoughout the night. And people danced, surrounding the bride and the groom in giant circles and occasionaly, they would be lifted unto chairs and celebrated around the room. The night was filled with perfect moments of bliss...
