Jewish Wedding Returns to Lubavitch Mazal Tov, Mazal Tov, what a glorious and wonderful simcha (joyous event)!
We can not underestimate the fact that Jewish weddings and real Jewish Chasidic life are back to the heart of the historical birthplace of the Lubavicher chasidim movement.
Mazal Tov and many more Jewish weddings in Lubavich! Reply
