While my usual posts are on serious issues like politics or religion, the Mid-East crisis or public relations, prior to the onset of Shabbat in New York wanted to post a beautiful, fun post (ended by a game of Jewish geography.)

Recently viewed the most beautiful and moving chuppah entrance I have ever seen and wanted to share it. The melody “Con te partiro” by famed Italian singer Andrea Bocelli is of course a gorgeous one many will recognize – but this exquisite, emotional wedding entrance is just amazing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BM9EIbHRSh0&feature=youtu.be

Gorgeous voice and amazing how kids were the choir as part of this simcha. May this couple – and all of Am Israel – know only peace, happiness and health.

Who can name this couple and location? (I don’t know the answer). But we can decipher some hints – with the presence of the Israeli Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, clearly it’s a Sephardic family.  And at 1:14, someone who resembles (and could be) a well-known New York Rabbi appears to kiss Rabbi Amar’s hand.

There are some hints which can be deciphered from the video – with the presence of Israel’s Sephardic Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar it is clearly a Sephardic family.  And at 1:14, someone who appears to be Rabbi Haskel Lookstein, the Rabbi of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, and founder of Ramaz School kisses Rav Amar’s hand.

Shabbat Shalom from Ronn Torossian.
