put a square into a hole

Why in the world is he still wearing those clothing?
Is he going to wear a striemel for the wedding?
If you cut off your beard & payos put on a tux for the wedding.

Yochanan Lavie

Mazal tov! You can't force a Skverer peg into a round hole.

Unorthodox Yidden

Praying in a different shul is worse than shaving a beard?

Outcast Yid

Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, the prominent clean-shaven Modern Orthodox rabbi who re-vitalized Lincoln Square Synagogue in the 1970s and is now head of several institutions in Ephrat, wears a kappote on Shabbat along with his big white kippah s'rugah. Nu, so some people like a kappote.

Zisha looks like a nice guy. If he still enjoys some of the old ways, kol hakavod. Mazal tov.


What a bunch of disfunctional family,but i tip my hat of for zhisha twersky he escaped the madness that is called new square.


Her forearms are showing. She's obviously a hussy who enticed him into sin.

Chaim Z

Mazel tov. May they find only joy and happiness in their lives ahead.


The chassidim won't attend but I'll bet the pig of a rabbi hits them up for big money.

No need to hit them up for any money, he anyway owns everything they have.

Yankel Pheffercorn

Why is she wearing a sheitel if the wedding hasn't happened yet?

steven k

Looks like a nice boy.
Wish him and his wife to be a lot of luck.


Mazel Tov! Shmarya next?

At least not until the wedding night! Ouch!


We all know what speaks from the body language of arms crossed as she is doing. Never seen such a thing in a photo of betrothed.


She may just be cold


>> Zisha Twersky was threatened and intimidated because he was not considered to be religious enough to meet village standards.

sounds like real estate discrimination if you ask me.

ahavas ysroel

mazal tov,mazal tov.
may they be zoche, of yihus atzmi,to build bayit neeman byisroel.
a foundation of emes is a rarity.
stop your rechilus and sily talk.
may ey and the entire family have nachat one from the other as we await the geulah on Nissan


>> Zisha Twersky was threatened and intimidated because he was not considered to be religious enough to meet village standards.

Do you have a source for this?

>> This is reportedly the first family wedding not held in New Square's grand synagogue since New Square's founding in the 1950s.

This is a blatant lie. Until the mid '90s (when the New Square synagogue was significantly expanded), weddings of the Skvere rebbe's family were all held outside of New Square.


I have a photo somewhere that my grandfather, a"h gave to me. It is from the wedding of the old Lisker Rebbe, HY"D. The wedding took place in the 1950's and the young Admo"r is wearing a Kapote and Shtreimel with neither beard nor Peyes.
Also, I have been told by the Galician side of my family that before the War, many Galicianers were clean-shaven and free of Peyes, yet they wore the Chasidic garb on Shabbos and Yom Tov and maintained allegiance to their respective Rebbes.


There are a thousand reasons why she would have her hands folded for this picture. One reason could be because this is probably the only engagement picture they took where she couldn't be touching him. It was awkward and that was probably why she has her hands folded. Or she could be self-conscious posing with him wearing the get-up. Or she didn't want to take a picture with him in that costume, but agreed, even if not happily.

Anyway, wishing them a great big Mazal Tov!

And Kein Yirbu! May he be an inspiration to many.

Yochanan - that was a GREAT line! One of your best puns ever! LOL!

Stop lie

Well lets straiten this out.
She is wearinig a shaitel cuz she was married b4.
The oifrif, and choson mohl (if u know what that meens) eas in skivra and so will the sheva brochos motzs"h be there.

To all u fucking haters stop 2 lie

I'm still chuckling over this one..

Moshe Aron Kestenbaum

I commend the square rebbi for taking a mechutan that's a bal tsuvah and a lawyer also the mectanasta , the brides mother wears pants, smokes and drives a cool sports car I heard, some turn around for the rebbi of sqaure


The bride's mother has been in a better world than this one, also known as the World of Truth, where wicked people such as the commenters here will get their just reward.


they look pretty frum to me...

Yes, because that is precisely the reason God exists - to wreak vengeance upon the people who piss you off.

Doresh el haMeisim

Note that the invitation says הכלה המהוללה, no mention of בתולה. And the rebbe had as much say in this shidduch as I did. I wonder if Heshy Breier was the "Best Man".

Some people wear wigs purely for fashion's sake.

Moshe Aron Kestenbaum Williamsburg

A good friend of mine who was at the wedding just told me that the wedding was very nice , it all passed without a hitch, the was some tense moments , like they chassidim feared that chosen kallah will kiss in public in the hall when the rebbi grand father is there, that's of course a no no in the chassidim world, but it didn't happen , even the dancing was more modest with not so much mixing, actually some said that this chosen would be a good candidate for rebbi of new square , after all these scandles and bad publicity that new square went thru , to modernize the place , to enhance it more into becoming a more civilized less dictatorial town, I guess will have to wait and see


Steven K - it looks like a regular chassidish wedding with only chassidish there! Was anyone not wearing a shtreimel??


A lot of young couples from Chabad or Chasidishe families will wear a kapata or bekisheh at the wedding and on shabboss even if they aren't particularly very religious and there are many varying reasons that thy do this. Many people here apply their own reasoning and think as to why someone would or wouldn't do something without having a clue as how these people think. It's one thing to condemn improper, illegal and immoral behavior but many people here go way beyond that.There is nothing to make fun or look down upon about this wonderful couple.

Yehoshua Halevi

Why is he wearing a bekiske and velvet beaver hat it just doesn't look good on a modern guy without beard and payos.

Dress like a Gentleman!!! put on single breasted
suit with tuxedo bow.

This outfit looks ridicules on him
