A Former Talmid and Talmida are Marrying Jewish! (And Each Other!)

6 and 7 years years ago respectively, when I was doing college outreach work at several campuses in the midwest, I ran a couple of New York trips for the students, similiar to the ones described in this article. Out of the blue, after not being in touch with this guy in several years, I get the following e-mail. What nachas!!!!!!!!!!

Rabbi "Dixie Yid",

Long time no talk! How are things in New York? I hope all is well with you and "Mrs. Yid" and the children. What's new with you?

You remember "Plonis bas Ploni" and I, right? Now seven years after the New York trip that you put together in which we met, we're finally going to be getting married. We got engaged 9 days ago.

We're trying to find a wedding date and we've heard many different things regarding which days we are not supposed to get married by the rules of the Jewish calendar. We figured you would be the best authority for this information?

I look forward to hearing from you and thanks for your help!
