The essence of attending a wedding


The Chafetz Chaim (Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan, 19th-20th century Poland) was once at a wedding of a needy couple, and when the bride and groom left the chuppah and came to a point near where he was, he raced forward to greet them.

He explained to his students: It is practically theft to attend a wedding and not gladden the bride and groom, for that is why you are invited to the wedding!

Have a great day,
