A Wedding for the Jewish People

A Wedding for the Jewish People

Her father and brother were murdered days before their wedding. Now Sarah Litman and her groom Ariel have invited everyone to their wedding.


Sarah Litman and Ariel Biegel were supposed to get married Tuesday, November 17. Instead the bride sat shivah for her father and brother who were gunned down in their car outside of Hebron, on the way to celebrate the Shabbat Chatan, the Shabbat before the wedding. The terrorists shot at the car, killing Rabbi Yaakov Litman and his son Netanel, 18, wounding Sarah’s mother, Noa and four siblings.

“This evening, instead of wearing the bridal dress, I will sit on the floor with a torn shirt,” Sarah told the Yediot Aharonot on 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.”

The Litmans and Biegels have decided to deliver a powerful message by inviting the entire Jewish people to their wedding, next week, Thursday, November 26, 14 Kislev, at Binyanei Hauma in Jerusalem.

“This will be the million-person wedding,” the couple said. “Multitudes will come to make us happy.”

Here is the invitation they released to the public:

The family also sent out the following message in Hebrew:

Don’t make our enemies happy. We fell, we got up, with God’s help, our wedding will take place next Thursday, 26 November, 14 Kislev, at Binyanei Hauma in Jerusalem. The Nation of Israel is invited to get up from the dust and rejoice with us….
