 +The Jewish wedding ceremony is done underneath a Chuppah or a wedding canopy. This is generally made of a tallit or a tapestry with the corners attached to four poles. ​ This represents the roof of the home the newlyweds will be living in together. However, the Chuppah has no walls to it, as walls would make the canopy a place of seclusion, which would then represent the room where the marriage was consummated,​ something done in private. The Chuppah is also used to separate the bride and groom from the rest of the people and create a small place of serenity for the two to marry in.
