Oprah Winfrey’s cable channel “OWN” showcased a Chassidic Lubavitch wedding this week, as Michoel and Chava Shapiro tied the knot.

The program “Our America with Lisa Ling” filmed couples from different religions, all of whom chose “a traditional path to engagement and marriage,” according to the community website

“Chava and I believe that this is a great opportunity to represent the beauty of Yiddishkeit (Judaism) to the broader public,” Michoel Shapiro told COLlive about appearing in the film. “We consulted with well respected leaders in the Chabad community and everyone said the same thing: ‘Go for it!'”

    Jesus turns water into wine? *Revelation 6:6 and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine. *Matthew 25:4 But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. *Isaiah 65:8 Thus saith the Lord, As the new wine is found in the cluster, and one saith, Destroy it not; for a blessing is in it: so will I do for my servants’ sakes, that I may not destroy them all. *Psalm 106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, *1st Timothy 5:15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.

    BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m not very observant, but I’m (very) informally associated with the local Chabad community – truly a wonderful, spiritual, joyous and giving community! And, luckily, I’ve been invited to all 3 of the Rabbi and Rebitzen’s daughters’ weddings (but could only attend two). They were extremely moving and both provided enlightening & inspiring experiences for which I’ll always be very grateful. You can’t imagine how amazing it is to see so much DANCING!!
