  1. I hope we continue with these simple weddings but I am wondering why we need 250 guests why isn’t a total of 30 to 40 guests total not enough in a nice basement especially when most of our struggling to pay tuitions and the basic necessities.

  2. What does the number of guests have to do with anything? You can have 250 guests and spend who knows how much. All that would cause is machlokes through people getting insulted. Why not something like no portions invite as many as you like but buffet only. Just saying

  3. I happen to agree with this simcha initiative. I’m just wondering why this is what everyone is taking from this mageifa. How about the huge houses people are building to shtuch out everyone’s eyes. For who? For what? And when mashiach comes you’re going to want to leave your huge house? The 3400 SW ft house is already too small! Now we need minkmum 5000 sq ft? No busha? How about the fact that people don’t have cleaning help now. Maybe we are too trusting, allowing our cleaning help to take care of our precious children? Or keeping the kashrus in our homes??? We seem to be managing with out them now even erev pesach…. how about working on that?
    Just saying

  4. How about e/o look inside yourself and work on what u need to work on, and let’s not judge others! The churban came cuz of Sinas chinum. Let’s bring the geula w ahavas yisroel bezH!!

  5. The only time in Jewish history the Rabbonim successfully toned down on “Gashmius” is at Levayas. People were emotionally vulnerable and spending way too much on coffins, flowers, processions, etc.
    It only worked because the Rabbonim themselves insisted on being buried in the simplest way possible and it would be embarrassing to have a nicer funeral than the your Rebbe.
    Until the Rabbonim and Rebbes start making simple weddings with 30-40 people it’s all talk.

  6. i dont think a 30-40 person wedding is a thing at all. why’s it over the top for the chosson/kallah’s grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins to be there? thats most probably already of 40 ppl… and yes there are supposed to be some friends at your wedding… so to me 250 sounds pretty decent…

  7. This initiative is beautiful and should be done if chas V’shalom we don’t get the message!!!!
    Hashe-m wants us back!!
    He is taking away every shtus so that we FINALLY really want him back in our lives!
    EVERYONE, PLEASE DAVEN FOR MOSHIACH TO COME and then we won’t need these takanos.
    Can you imagine being in the presence of the Shechina and discussing these petty issues??
    Let’s all daven to reunite in Yerushlayim ir Hakodesh with Moshiach Tzidkaynu B’miheira V’yamainu AMEIN!.

  8. Around 80 percent of Todays tzedakos (pre corona) are for hachnosas Kallah. That is insane. The vast majority of frum yidden cannot afford to make a chasuna. It would be a huge thing to get this going.

  9. Great initiative. Would add limits on jewelry gifts, band size and fresh flowers, which seem basic to a commitment to a simpler wedding.

  10. How about abolishing seminary in Israel.

    $30,000+ savings right there.

    And btw , Theres enough low budget wedding packages that have been out there and available for years.


  11. two main reasons for very large weddings
    1: large extended family,
    2: people dont want to insult people by not inviting them

    These two reasons still exist. what is going to change?
