VIDEO: Highlights From Gur And Belz Weddings, 17 Sivan 5783

Tuesday saw two enormous weddings in Jerusalem when the grandchildren of the Belzer Rebbe and the Gerer Rebbe were wed in their respective Batei Midrash, located in the Romema neighborhood of Jerusalem barely 500 meters apart.

Tens of thousands gathered on Yirmiyahu Street close to the well-known Beis Midrash of Gur for the Gerer wedding, which was held first.

The chupa was performed by several distinguished rabbis, including Rabbi Yitzchak Zilberstein, Rav Yitzchak Yosef, the Boyaner Rebbe, and Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau. Immediately following the chupa, the audience broke out in song.

Thousands of chasidim came close to the Beis Midrash for the nighttime wedding of the Belz family, celebrating with the Rebbe, his son Rav Aharon Mordechai, and grandson, the seventh grandchild to wed.

After the chupa, the party relocated to Jerusalem’s enormous Arena center, where the lunch and Mitzva Tanz were held.

The fact that the rebbe could dance with them just two months after undergoing extensive back surgery pleased the chasidim.
Prominent litvish rabbis also attended the Belz wedding, including Rabbi Boruch Mordechai Ezrachi, rosh yeshiva of Aterest Yisrael (who also participated at the Gur wedding), and Rabbi Moshe Hillel Hirsch, rosh yeshiva of Slabodka.
