From “Jews in Minnesota,” by Hyman Berman and Linda Mack Schlof:
“The wedding of Clarice Sherman and Mel Zuckman at Tifereth B’nai Jacob in North Minneapolis, 1951.
“At a Jewish wedding, the bride and groom stand under a chupah or wedding canopy symbolizing their future home.
“As long as Jews remained in the compact geographical areas where they were a dominant majority, they continued to attend Orthodox synagogues while moving away from the strict requirements as individuals. American secular life increasingly challenged the rigid traditionalism of Orthodox Judaism.”
