`Badeken'

A

n old and beautiful
custom is the ceremony
of veiling the bride by the
groom (in Yiddish, Badeken,
meaning "to cover") which
takes place before the wed-
ding service, usually in con-
junction with the signing
of the ketubah. It is prac-
ticed at Orthodox and
some Conservative wed-
dings. It may take place in
the rabbi's study or in the
bride's room. Generally, on-
ly the immediate families,
the maid of honor, and the
best man attend.
It is not clear why this
ceremony was introduced
into our tradition, but it
may have had something to
do with the fact that mar-
riages were arranged, and
the groom, having had lit-
tle opportunity to see his
wife-to-be before the wed-
ding, wanted to make cer-
tain that he was marrying
the girl promised him.
