The wedding of Lori and Lee

There is a tradition in Judaism to plant a tree when a child is born - cypress for a girl, cedar for a boy - and use the branches of each to make the chuppah (wedding canopy) upon their marriage. The Rabbis told this story under Lori and Lee's chuppah, and reminded us all about the glory of tradition, the strength of love, and the beauty that comes from blending branches. Mazel tov to Lori and Lee!
