A rabbi once said that God making a match for a man and woman is as intricate as splitting the atom. So be it.
Doug MacIlroy’s picture of Maui is a sight to behold. Thanks, Aloha, Doug! 😉
Chairwoman of the Blog, Rochelle “Cousin Shelly” Wisoff-Fields invites you to participate in the Friday Fictioneers.
Remember to look at the pictures at the end of the story … this thing really IS real! (no pun intended, but, hey, if the shoe fits …)
I huppah you like it! (pun intended that time).
P.S. Rochelle has MANY talents other than writing.
At her Hanukkah party, Shelly gave her cousin Chaim two wonderful presents: a homemade gold-fringed prayer shawl and an introduction to her friend, Nina Abramova. Nina admired both the shawl and Chaim. They sat at the table noshing on potato pancakes while Chaim offered Nina rich and meaningful conversation all night long.
On their wedding day, no one at the synagogue could find the canopy, just the poles.
Nina panicked. “What are we going to do?”
Chaim smiled, removed his shawl, attached each corner of it to the poles with rubber bands. “It brought us together once, now forever.”
