Wedding Joy Multiplied at Center for Russian-Speaking Immigrants

July 10, 2008
The Russian-speaking Jewish community in Hillside, N.J., celebrated its 23rd mass wedding with the nuptials of nine immigrant couples at the city’s Bris Avrohom center, a Chabad-Lubavitch institution co-directed by Rabbi Mordechai and Shterney Kanelsky. The festivities also saw the dedication of the new Bat Sheva-Chaya Esther Mikvah, a Jewish ritual bath sporting a line of upscale accoutrements, including Jacuzzis, heated floors and plush towels.
