THE UFRUF One important custom is the ufruf, which is Yiddish for "calling up." The Ufruf refers to the groom being called up for an aliyah, recitation of a blessing over the Torah, in the synagogue.
In the Ashkenazi Orthodox Jewish tradition, the ufruf ceremony takes place on the Shabbat before the wedding.
In Sephardi and Mizrachi traditions, the ufruf is called the Shabbat Chattan, which means the groom's Shabbat.
The Shabbat Chattan typically takes place on the Shabbat after the wedding.
After the Torah reading, the members of the congregation sing songs and to throw soft candies, raisins and nuts at the groom as an expression of the community's wishes for a sweet start for the new life the bride and groom will soon begin together.
There are also those who say this is a reference to the verse in Shir Hashirim, the Song of Songs, "I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits of the valley, and to see if the vine had blossomed, to see if the pomegranates were in bloom." In many Ashkenazi Orthodox communities, the bride does not attend the aufruf because of the custom for the bride and groom not to see one another for a week before the wedding.
HISTORY OF THE URFUF It is thought that ceremony evolved from an practice in the Beit Ha Mikdash, the Holy Temple, in Jerusalem.
