Couple invites public to wedding

The young couple who postponed their marriage by a week after the terrorist murder of the bride’s father and brother has invited the public to their wedding.

Sarah Techiya Litman and Ariel Beigle will be married Nov. 26 in the Jerusalem International Convention Center. Litman’s father, Rabbi Yaakov Litman, and 18-yearold brother, Netanel, were killed in the West Bank.

“This evening, instead of wearing the bridal dress, I will sit on the floor with a torn shirt,” Sarah said, the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharonot reported. “But very soon, we will marry in a large and happy wedding. We will go on and be happy as Father and Netanel always were. We will not be crushed.”

The couple is calling it the “million person wedding,” according to Yediot, which quoted the couple as saying, “Multitudes will come to make us happy.”

Litman told the newspaper that her fiance has already begun to fill the void left by her father and her brother, who were shot to death near the West Bank settlement of Otniel as they drove in a car with five other family members to the Shabbat prewedding celebrations. (JTA)
