I haven't played at a ton of Jewish weddings, but Erev Shel Shoshanim has been part of every one that I've been in. Someone once requested Tzena Tzena as a recessional. The suggestions by others have been good, too.

Another Jewish wedding musician chiming in....   In addition to what Ken has suggested, I've played:  Y'did Nefesh (Song of the Soul),  Los Bilbilicos (The Nightingales) , Kol Dodi (Voice of My Beloved), Erev Ba (Evening Comes), Sunrise Sunset (from Fiddler on the Roof) and  L'chi Lach by Debbie Friedman (On Your Journey I Will Bless You). Most of these songs have multiple tunes.   At some weddings Siman Tov is sung after the breaking of the glass - the couple should provide you with guidance on this.  As you are planning your set list, be aware traditionally  the processional of a Jewish wedding includes parents of both the bride and the groom.  I usually start out playing Erev Ba for the processional and then change to Erev Shel Shoshanim (Evening of Roses) for the bride and family.  As Ken noted, you can find theses tunes on the 'net.  Also feel free to email me off list.

Does anyone have experience playing dulcimer for Jewish weddings?  Any info you can share is appreciated.

Thanks!
