  1. R’Ze’ev is a magid shiur par excellence in MKT Belmar. All of us from Belmar wish him and his family a gigantic mazel tov. May they see much nachas from the chassan and kallah ad meah v’esrim.

  2. First time I ever saw a wedding announcement and not even a mention of the existence of a Kallah! Is this some weird type of chumra?

  3. We inadvertantly omitted the kallah’s name. We apologize. The kallah is Chayala Gross, daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Menachem Gross.
