    'Our ceremony is completely secular'
    Irit Rosenblum marries 400 couples annually in a civil union
    TEL AVIV - Irit Rosenblum, chairwoman of the organization “New Family,” marries 400 couples annually in a thoroughly secular context.


    In contrast to the groups seeking a blend of tradition and modern secular approaches, Rosenblum does not use Jewish symbols at all, and calls herself a performer of civil unions.



    She says participants in her ceremonies generally don’t break a glass, and if a glass is broken, don’t say ‘If I forget Jerusalem.’


    “In my opinion it’s embarrassing to combine religious elements in a ceremony for people who chose not to be connected to religion,” she says.
