29 Jan A special wedding in Cali
This month a very special event took place in Cali, Colombia that touched the hearts of many, particularly the Shavei Israel team. We want to congratulate Rabbi Asher Abrabanel and his wife on their marriage and wish them a life together full of blessings, peace, harmony and love. Rabbi Asher contributes to Shavei’s activities and is a representative of the organization for his city. We greatly appreciate his valuable work for Shavei Israel and for the Maguen Abraham community of Cali, Colombia.
The wedding was attended by Rav Shimon Yechua, Shavei Israel’s emissary in Colombia, as well as Rabbi Shmuel Tawil and Rav Yitzchack Abud from Mexico, who led the wedding ceremony (mesader kiddushin). Rav Elad Villegas, director of ACIC (Association of Israeli Communities of Colombia), spoke a few words and offered a toast to the new couple.
