Joan and Verne’s Wedding

Welcome to a traditional Jewish wedding in Capetown! The difference is that this same-sex wedding, performed in 2008, is sanctioned by the South African Union of Progressive Judaism. South Africa is one of only five countries to recognize same-sex marriages. Rabbi Greg Alexander, the officiating rabbi, says that unless religions find a way to embrace same-sex couples, they will be seen by many as irrelevant.
