Brides and Betrothals: Jewish Wedding Rituals in Afghanistan (Softcover)
This wonderful and richly illustrated book features one of the smaller ethnic communities that comprise the multicolored fabric of Israeli society. The rituals of the wedding serve as a window opening onto the public and private lives and customs of the small Jewish community of Afghanistan, which emigrated to Israel almost in its entirety in the early years of Israeli statehood. This book was prepared for an exhibition at the Israel Museum and show the richness of the rituals and ceremonies which illustrate the traditions of the community.
