“The happiest moment of my life was when I got married last year, just down the street from here! When we got married we decided to take the traditions from Judaism that were most important to us. Jimmy is actually not Jewish, but he loves all of the traditions. We were able to introduce them to his side of the family, who didn’t necessarily know about those things, and being able to share all of the fun was a very happy moment for us.
The hora was probably the happiest moment of the day! It was so wild and so much fun and everybody was really getting into it – even people who didn’t know about it before. My best friend, who I met at camp, was the one who married us. It was nice to be able to tie everything together, and make the traditions our own.”
