Is this your wedding, or one of a friend or family?

I have never been to an Orthodox wedding. I asked my Dr about the Mitzvtanz. I am glad I had guess correct.

She was so thrilled by my reaction to your photos, she is sharing all her excitment and the Girls plans for the upcoming wedding of her son in August.

Where I live near Toronto we have a very large Orthodox community. We stand side by side yet I still feel so ignorant and a bit unworthy in their presence. Not by anything they exude, but from my desire to know more about them.

Hi Lynn
This is the wedding of the Grand Rabbi of Kretchniv's son, which was in Kiryas Tosh, right outside Montreal.
Orthodox Jews are supposed to represent God in their daily lives. Some of us do it better and some of us worse. :-) Underneath it all, we're just people like everybody else and people aren't worth feeling unworthy about. Maybe it's telling you something about your feelings in relation to God though.

Hi,

Now you mention it, it probably has alot to do with my relationship with God.
Eventhough I feel my relationship with God is pretty whole now, when I was younger I was kind of adrift and alone in my faith beliefs.
I was told to hide my beliefs by a Mother who had no faith, yet I still followed the faith of my Grandmother, where my Mother feared to tread.
So I was raised without a sense of Religious Community, which is probably the part which makes me feel unworthy.
I have the best direct relationship with God I can perceive, and I feel I evangelize my faith and beliefs as the plain ole human I am on this earth.
I have find myself gravitating closer and closer Hasidic ideals. And at this point in my life I find myself surrounded in messages from the Hasidic community. As an adult I see the worth of it. Funny how God gives us connections when we may be looking at the horizon in two directions.

Anyhow your photos are wonderful. Very beautiful. You did a great job.
Captured the spirit wonderfully.
