Shulamith Gruskin, Rabbi Y. Zuckerman
Married in Traditional Orthodox Ceremony

In a traditional Orthodox wed-
ding April 6, Shulamith Gruskin
was married to Rabbi Yehoshua
Zuckerman at the Light Guard
The bride is the daughter of
Rabbi and Mrs. Solomon Gruskin
of Kenosha Ave., Oak Park; her
husband the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Meshulem Zuckerman of Brooklyn.
Among those officiating at the out-
door ceremony were Rabbis A. H.
Leibowitz, dean of the Rabbinical
Seminary of America in Israel,
and C. P. Scheinberg, dean of the
Brooklyn Yeshivath Torah Ore,
which next week will transfer its
entire operations to Israel.
The couple plans to live in
where Rabbi Zuckerman
id the Brisker Kollel Tal-
900 guests were present for


the ceremony and dinner, at which
men ate and danced separately
from the women. The latter were
requested to wear modest attire
and hats at all times, in accord-
ance with the Shulhan Aruch, Code
of Jewish Law.
The ceremony followed a re-
ception, called "kabbolas po-
nim," in the bridegroom's room
and another in the bride's room;
Maariv prayers; and, finally the
"veiling" ceremony, when the
bridegroom saw his bride for the
first time in a week.
Conducted under the canopy
from the old Bnai Zion Synagogue,
the ceremony began after the stars
first appeared in the sky, another
Accompanying the bride to the
canopy were her parents and im
mediate family. Beside his family,
the bridegroom was escorted by
fellow students from the Lake-
wood Yeshiva, where he was a
student in Brooklyn.
The bride, in an A-line gown of
rose-pattern brocade with a high
neck and long sleeves, wore the
Orthodox "shetl" or wig. A pillbox
of matching material held her cir-
cular silk organza veil, which hid
her face from guests until after
the ceremony. She carried a bou-
quet of roses and Stephanotis. Her
bridegroom wore a long, white
robe (kitel), similar to a shroud,
as a traditional reminder that man
is mortal and that all sins are for-
given on his wedding day.
The couple retired to a private
room before joining the guests at
dinner which had been personally
supervised in its preparations by
the bride's parents. Although al-
coholic beverages are not to be
served in the armory, special per-
mission was granted by the state
attorney general to serve sacra-
mental wine. According to ritual,
all present washed their hands at
specially arranged tables and said
a benediction before dining.
To assure that all fdods were
prepared in accordance with the
laws of kashruth, the bride's par-
ents had imported some of the
provisions. In kashering the uten-

fred A. Kiunover, Saul Gordon and
