Putting the Finishing Touches on Hawaii’s First-Ever Chasidic Wedding

November 21, 2007
Preparing for 500 guests from around the world is no small feat. But when the location is Hawaii and the occasion is the state’s first-ever Chasidic wedding, nothing is left to chance. Three days before the Wednesday nuptials of local Rivky Krasnjansky and Rabbi Avremel Chazanow of New Jersey, the parents of the bride, Rabbi Itchel and Pearl Krasnjansky of Chabad-Lubavitch of Hawaii, were supervising the caterers and kashering the dishes. They also made sure no Jew walked past without performing at least one mitzvah.
