The wedding of JJ Deitsch and Fraida Jacobson was meant to take place at Oholei Torah ballroom in Crown Heights on Thursday night with a large crowd of family and friends.
But with the widespread outbreak of coronavirus and instructions to remain isolated, those plans were changed for a small venue and a crowd of only 10 people.
Nevertheless, the kallah received an amazing surprise as she stepped outside her parents’ home on President Street dressed in a white wedding gown.
Neighbors on her entire block and friends had joyous music playing on loudspeakers, sending Mazal Tovs greetings from afar and drivers honking away in a grand send-off on her special day.
Following the chuppah, the family arranged for the newlyweds to drive around Crown Heights in a convertible so that the entire community can celebrate together with them.
“We would like as many people as possible to come out on their porches if you live on this route and do anything and everything to add energy and joy for them on their special day,” the family wrote in a message.
“Sing, play instruments, dance, wave, clap and cheer! Please forward around so every block will be filled with joy as we pass,” they said.
They will be driving through Crown Heights between 6:45 and 7:00 the family said.
