All of Klal Yisrael is invited to celebrate in the marriage of Sarah Tehiya Litman and Ariel Bigel, to take place at Binyanei Hauma in Jerusalem.
Sarah Tehiya is now sitting shiva for her father, Rabbi Yaakov Litman, and her brother Netanel, who were murdered by terrorists on Friday on their way to celebrate the Shabbat preceding the scheduled wedding. The simcha, originally planned for this week, has been postponed by nine days due to the family’s mourning.
“This evening, instead of wearing the bridal dress, I will sit on the floor with a torn shirt,” Sarah told the newspaper Yediot Aharonot Tuesday. “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.”
“Do not rejoice over me, my enemy, for I have fallen but I have gotten up” (Michah 7:8) the couple chose to precede the announcement of their invitation.
“This will be the million-person wedding,” the couple said, reported by Arutz Sheva. “Multitudes will come to make us happy.”
