To whom this may concern,
This issue has gotten so out of hand, I feel I need to bring it up.
I was at a wedding last week, and when I walked in I literally immediately double checked my calendar to make sure I was at the right wedding.
Why? The music.
I am not lying when I tell you I thought I was at some modern orthodox or ‘frie’ wedding, when in fact it was a wedding of two yeshivish families.
The music sounded like it was straight off the goyish radio. There was not a hint of Jewishness in it. Zero.
To make it worse, in the lobby, there were young bochorim and girls shmoozing, and some were dancing to the booming music as if it were a club or something.
I was supposed to be there for the meal, as this was a close friend from the yeshiva days, but I went in, told him mazel tov and just made a b-like straight for the door.
I was horrified.
It’s time to bring back the values and the yiddish taam to weddings.
