Veiling Of The Bride

After the signing of the Ketubah, a short ceremony called Bedeken - the veiling of the bride - takes place.

In Genesis 24:60, it describes the story of Rebecca's first meeting with Isaac. As Isaac, who is to be her husband, approaches, "she took her veil and covered herself." Thus, when the groom lowers his bride's veil, she is blessed with the words offered to Rebecca by her mother and brother, before she left for her marriage to Isaac: "Oh sister, may you grow into thousands of myriads..." The Rabbi recites verses of blessing as the groom veils the bride.
