From Days Gone By: Chanukah Wedding, 1971

We present to our readers recently uncovered video footage from the wedding of Rabbi Joshua B. Gordon, OBM, longtime Shliach to The Valley in L.A. before he passed away earlier this year. In the video several notable guests can be seen, including the Chosson’s brother-in-law Rabbi Manis Friedman and the latter’s younger brother Avremel, who was still a child at the time, singing on the stage. Can you identify anyone else in the video?
