I chose my mom and dad’s huppah as my object. A huppah is a piece of fabric that people get married under at Jewish weddings that represents the home the married couple will build. It started in Europe. You can choose any fabric you want and you can also decorate the poles that hold it up. By doing this it makes the huppah unique since it represents the home the couple will make. My mom chose a tablecloth from the 40’s or 50’s with a nice pattern and my parents also put ribbons around the poles. In the book The Keeping Quilt they used the quilt as a huppah, and it showed that what you use as a huppah can be really important to you.My parents had their siblings hold up the poles to have family involved in the ceremony. Except for the fact that one of my dad’s sisters wasn’t there so a friend of his held one pole up.I chose the huppah since it represents the home the married couple will build. And my family lives in the home. This object is connected especially to my parents. My mom is Jewish so my parents wanted to have a Jewish wedding but my dad is not Jewish and he immigrated here from England. We still keep the huppah at home because it represents our family and it is really special to my parents. The huppah still looks like it does in the picture from 2005. My parents have taken very good care of it. And when I wanted to see it my parents showed it to me but they made me be really careful with it. I can tell that it’s really important to my parents, and it also is to me because without it = no me.
