RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: SAVANNAH JEWISH WEDDINGS: CUSTOMIZED: HISTORIC INNS +SQUARES

RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: SAVANNAH JEWISH WEDDINGS: CUSTOMIZED: HISTORIC INNS +SQUARES

From 2017 June's The Bluffton Sun and Hilton Head Sun : Learning to disagree agreeably. Rabbis Hillel and Shammai.   Blessings, RABBI DR Arthur Segal of Rabbi Arthur Segal's Jewish Spiritual Renewal of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Shalom: This year we will learn about Judaism's Talmudic rabbis' universal lessons.  

One of Judaism's most famous sages, living circa 50 BCE, is Rabbi Hillel. He studied in what is now Iraq, the center of Talmudic Judaism, and at the age of 40, moved to Jerusalem, where his fame from teaching was established. His quote from Talmud Pirket Avot "If I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when? '' is still used today.

In the first century BCE, Hillel   migrated to the Land of Israel to study and worked as a woodcutter, eventually becoming the most influential force in Jewish life. Hillel is said to have lived in such great poverty that he was sometimes unable to pay the admission fee to study Torah, and because of him that fee was abolished. He was known for his kindness, gentleness, concern for humanity.  Hillel and his descendants established academies of learning and were the leaders of the Jewish community in the Land of Israel for several centuries. The Hillel dynasty ended with the death of Hillel II in 365 CE.

Hillel's friendly adversary was Rabbi Shammai, a native of the Land of Israel about whom little is known except that he was a builder and engineer , known for strict views. He was dour, quick-tempered and impatient. Both lived during the reign of King Herod (37-4 BCE), an oppressive period in Jewish history because of the Roman occupation of Israel. Shammai was concerned that if Jews had too much contact with the Romans, the Jewish community would be weakened, and this attitude was reflected in his strict interpretation of Jewish law. Hillel did not share Shammai's fear and therefore was more liberal in his view of law.

Hillel was the more popular of the two scholars, and he was chosen by the Talmudic academy,  to serve as its president [Nasi]. While Hillel and Shammai themselves did not differ on a great many basic issues of Jewish law, their disciples were often in academic but peaceful conflict, but they married one another's sister, and were family.

JEWISH WEDDINGS OFFICIATED BY RABBI ARTHUR SEGAL: TRADITIONAL, INTERFAITH, CO-OFFICIANT, DESTINATION

http://jewish.server272.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/262868_10150265476508494_113476883493_7846773_2284419_n.jpg

"One of the Joys of being a Rabbi," says Rabbi Arthur Segal," is working closely with the bride and groom and officiating at their wedding." He can do this with couples living nearby or with couples having a destination wedding in the greater beautiful Hilton Head Island area.

Rabbi Arthur Segal helps develop a custom ceremony with the couple so that each word in the ceremony rings true to them. His ceremonies can range from the very traditional to whatever the couples desires. Rabbi opines that this is the couple's special day, and to treat each wedding as unique.

For those who are having an interfaith wedding, Rabbi takes special care to respect both traditions, again with total input from the couple. He will be pleased to co-officiate at weddings, using non-Trinitarian language.

Rabbi Arthur Segal also will do recommitment marriage ceremonies with the same care as he does weddings.

Rabbi will work closely with the wedding planner and/or caterer to make sure the wedding is seamless, and the bride and groom can totally enjoy themselves on their special day.

Rabbi Arthur Segal is available, and actually prefers, to be at the rehearsal, to ensure all is going smoothly, and to get to know the bridal party, and family, before the actual wedding day.

For those that wish to have a Ketubah, rabbi will work closely to make sure everyone's name has correct calligraphy on the document, in English and Hebrew, so the signing ceremony is flawless.

Rabbi Arthur Segal tries to limit his weddings to Hilton Head, SC, Bluffton, SC, Palmetto Bluff, SC, Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC, but has been known to make himself available elsewhere, even out of the USA. He will also conduct weddings and recommitment ceremonies on cruise ships. In keeping with Jewish ethics, if the couple resides in Rabbi Arthur Segal's town, Rabbi will ask, unless there are some special circumstances, if the couple has first asked the local pulpit rabbi to officiate. http://jewish.server272.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/chuppah-beach.jpg
