Times: Non-Jewish Couples are Using a Huppah Wedding Canopy

The Times has a surprising account of how non-Jews are adopting the Huppah as a part of their wedding ceremonies, "Exchanging Vows Under a Canopy, No Matter the Faith," by MARIANNE ROHRLICH.

The article explains, "In Judaism, a traditional huppah typically consists of a prayer shawl or other cloth attached to four poles, which is held aloft over the couple by family members, and is intended to signify the newlyweds’ new home. They are purposely open-sided to welcome the guests."
