Not as taboo as you thought: Slow dancing at a frum Jewish wedding

From the side matter: It was the wedding of the year in the Hasidic world. More than 10,000 guests arrived at the Sanz Hasidic headquarters in Netanya to celebrate the wedding of Meir Meshulam, son of Sanz Grand Rabbi Tzvi Elimelech Halberstam, the Klausenberger Rebbe of Netanya, to his cousin, Bracha Unsdorfer. The Sanz-Klausenberg Hasidic dynasty, considered one of the largest today in Israel, was started in Europe by the author of "Divrei Chaim," Grand Rabbi Chaim Halberstam of Sanz. The dynasty in Israel numbers a few thousand households, most of which are located in Netanya's Kiryat Hahasidut.

Short list of things that no American RWUOJ would dare permit:

  • Public hand holding
  • Public slow dancing
  • A sheer, see-through mechitzah.  
Its not for now, but I owe you a post explaining why the Hasidim have their own rules, and why American RWUOJ persist in thinking of Hasidim as a more authentic version of themselves, and not as something altogether different
