To whom this may concern. Let me start by saying, I’m not a ‘frummie’. That said, I attended a wedding recently, and was very disturbed at what I encountered. As I approached the main men’s entrance, I honestly had to double check the sign to see if I’d mistakenly approached the wrong entrance.
Men, women, girls and boys were all gathered at the entrance, smoking, shmoozing and drinking in what looked like nothing less than a bar.
Is this what a Yiddishe wedding is supposed to look like?
If you come to a wedding to hang out, that’s not my business, but doing it at an entrance I’m supposed to be entering at, is my business. There is no reason I have to encounter this Shmutz, when attending a Yiddishe wedding.
I’m hoping the hall owners address this issue for future weddings.
