It is always a joyous time to be invited to a wedding and one can do tremendous Chesed (kindness) in selecting ones wedding gift with care. In Israel, many people give money as a gift. Money certainly is very useful to any couple starting out on their new life together. Very often though, one wants to give something that the couple can remember you by.
To help the couple in building a Bayit Ne’eman there are all manner of beautiful Judaica that one can give. For some ideas, please take a look at our Shopping for Goodness Store, especially at:
Here you will find many wonderful ideas. By clicking on an item you enjoy, you will find it very easy to purchase the item and have it sent to the lucky couple.
There are some who enjoy giving a mezuzah or mezuzah cover as a wedding gift. Please note that if you are going to give a mezuzah as a gift, it would be a very great kindness to make sure that the mezuzah itself is written in the script that is appropriate for them. For example, Ktav Sefardi for a Sephardic couple, Ktav Ashkenaz for an Ashkenazi couple and for those who follow Chassidus or Kabbala, Ktav Ari would be appropriate. Please also make sure that the mezuzah is kosher. It is a very huge disappointment for a couple to take their new wedding gift to be checked only to discover that it is not actually kosher.
If you would like to know more information regarding how to know if your mezuzah is Kosher and the importance of it being Kosher, please visit A Dwelling Place Below
Please also consider that there are various Jewish laws regarding whether a mezuzah can be taken down. If the couple is not in a position to purchase an apartment, many follow that a mezuzah put up on the door post of an apartment you are renting has to remain there when one leaves. For more information regarding this please ask a competent Orthodox Rabbi.
If you are close to the couple, you might want to give them a book to help them build a home in keeping with the beauty of what it is to be a Jew.
Please take a look at just a few ideas of books in our Shopping for Goodness Store. Amongst others you will find some very good books on Family Purity, Kashrut and more.
