Danny and Shoshana met at a mutual friend’s wedding, and when he told all his friends she was Jewish, they were thrilled! A nice Jewish girl for our friend Danny, they thought. There was, however, the tiniest of issues… Danny is from Taiwan and is not Jewish. How would the family of this nice Jewish girl react?
After meeting Shoshana, and seeing her and Danny together, their friends all agreed that they couldn’t help but notice how perfectly they complemented each other. It was obvious they would spend the rest of their lives together. However, prior to doing so, they would need to overcome some hurdles, which they did and did so beautifully! Danny took classes with Shoshana at a local synagogue. Shoshana designed and hand cut their ketubah and included the Chinese character for double happiness. Their wedding was a beautiful blend of Jewish and Chinese traditions, including a chuppah and a tea ceremony. They danced the Hora and invited lion dancers to entertain their guests. Their love and respect for one another won the hearts of even the most staunch opponents of interfaith marriages. Their marriage is an example of the fact that love should and does prevail and that the blending of cultures and traditions is beautiful.
Mazel tov, Shoshana and Danny!
