In other news…
My family was blessed to celebrate the wedding of my niece and newest nephew on New Year’s Eve! The happy couple happened to honeymoon in Israel, which prompts me to mention a new-ish Israel travel program similar to the Birthright program.
It’s called Honeymoon Israel, which offers highly subsidized trips to Israel for married couples or committed life partners! At least one partner must be Jewish, and at least one partner must be between the ages of 25-40.
Do you know someone who was engaged recently and is looking for a Jewish or interfaith wedding officiant?
Ahava officiates both Jewish and interfaith ceremonies, and is honored to do so! Ahava takes great pride in crafting beautiful, moving wedding ceremonies that make all family members feel wholly embraced, included, and entirely comfortable with the process and event.
Wishing my niece and nephew, along with all couples newly married or engaged, a hearty mazel tov!
