There are a few good lessons to be learned from Covid19. Hopefully, they will remain with our community long after this is over. !) Extravagant l’chaims are a total waste of money and completely unnecessary. I’m married B”H over 30 years, and my “vort” was a beautiful, self-catered evening in my parent’s dining room. 2) Family and friends should wish well and understand, that weddings are more meaningful and enjoyable without the “gallons of alcoholic beverages” and everyone you are related to, live near, happen to know, work with, etc in physical attendance – even if “just” for the (costly… Read more »
