dancing at a wedding is supposed to be for simchas chosson ve’kalleh. not just for fun, because there is a party.

Surprised

being a bochur, when i saw the title i thought that this article was an “april fools” in december? This is unheard of. That bochurim, in kevutzah, supposed to be spending a year with the rebbe, can take time out of their day to dance, and drink for no purpose, and with no toi’eles. I highly doubt that any of those bochurim, dancing as seen in the pictures like grob yakken, have any shaichus.

No a "mock" wedding, a "remote" wedding

were the siblings of each of these bochurim getting married to each other? i.e – was it the same wedding that both missed?

Not a mock
November 25, 2009 1:30 pm

This is not a mock wedding as there was no chosson and kallah. I think that there is another term for this

...
November 25, 2009 1:25 pm

the bochur didn’t want to go to the wedding because he’s in the kevutzah oh bochrim that learn a whole year non stop

Which picture is the suspenders sandals guy?

good band!
November 25, 2009 10:10 am

I think i use these boys in the band for any simchas (IYH) i make, i thought the clipping was nearly as long as a chasnah!!

nice
November 25, 2009 9:47 am

Its really nice that they did that for their friends, a lesson to be learned, however the dude with the sandals and suspenders is by far the coolest!!!

November 25, 2009 9:29 am

Doesn’t matter why they didn’t go. Yasher koiach to whoever was thoughtful enough to make them happy here.

Maybe they didn’t go because they couldn’t afford it, and they didnt’ want to walk around shnorring money like so many others, and then you can complain about the tzfasim laydegayer shnorrers.
Kol Hakovod to both of them and their friends for making the day special to them.

Sooo funny!
November 25, 2009 8:12 am

Love it! Enjoying and celbrating the simcha from thousands of miles away! Awesome! 🙂

November 25, 2009 8:04 am

November 25, 2009 8:03 am

BH

Moshiach Now!

November 25, 2009 7:47 am
they are good buchrim
November 25, 2009 7:27 am

They didnt go because when you make a comitment to learn for a year you keep to that, showing the importance of learning

Why?
November 25, 2009 7:25 am

Why couldn’t they go to the weddings? This was a nice thing to do. not the same, but thoughtful.

So Nice!
November 25, 2009 7:21 am

So nice that these guys care for their friends to do this for them when they cant go!
