In a traditional Orthodox and sometimes Conservative only the groom speaks his vows, which can be recited in both Hebrew and English. The original vow is (in English transliteration), “Haray at mekudeshet lee beh-taba’at zo keh-dat Moshe veh-Yisrael,” which translates into, “Behold, you are consecrated to me with this ring according to the laws of Moses and Israel.” In Reform, some Conservative, and other contemporary Jewish ceremonies, the man and woman both recite vows, slightly altered from the traditional Hebrew version: “Haray ata mekudash lee beh-taba’at zo keh-dat Moshe veh-Israel.” Another version of non-traditional vows is a phrase from the Song of Songs: “Ani leh dodee veh dodee lee,” which means, “I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.” Got your suitable christian wedding vows now?
