Zahkor, Remembering our Ancestors

The Hebrew word (Zahkor) Remember is crucial to our lives and it projects the past into the present and the future.

In some Jewish wedding ceremonies one is supposed to honor and remember ones ancestors. Instead of merely conjuring up the memory of those that have left us in the mind’s eye, we decided to create a visual representation of our respective family members who have passed away by using photos of them and projecting our ancestors onto the Chuppah so that their larger than life images hovered above us watching over our celebration if only for a moment and then receding back into the void.
