>I went to Eric & Irene’s wedding today, and beaming through the mechanical, electrical, and emotional stutters, was the beautiful radiant joy of a couple in love. It was a small ceremony; most of the guest were related to either the bride or the groom, so those of us who were not part of the clan felt honored to be included as family. I think that one of the main reasons I like going to weddings is to see lovers in love celebrating their union; it is heartwarming and inspiring to witness happiness.

A word used several times in the ceremony was Bershert. Bershert is a Yiddish word which translates to mean “It was meant to be”, sometimes people use it to mean their beloved.

May we all know the experience of bershert.
