Wedding, Felicia Kahn, 1949
As a child I romanticized weddings as playing bride. My mother's wedding picture was placed in an important spot in my grandmother's house and I knew my mother was the last one to marry in the old Temple Sinai. Few people had weddings in synagogues when I married but I wanted mine in Temple Sinai. My veil had lace from my mother's veil. When one of my daughter's married, she too had a wedding at Temple Sinai and she wore my wedding dress. The flowers at my daughter's wedding were built into a chupa, a change in the times to a more traditional setting.
