AARON’S GETTING MARRIED
Mea Shearim, Jerusalem
Aaron Kreus, 18, is the oldest out of 15 syblings, he lives in the Ultra Orthodox neighbourhood Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, where family is the core. One of the most important days in the life of a mother and a father is when their first born child gets married.
As a son or a daughter approaches the age to be wed, the family does its best to find a partner that fits. There is no romance involved. The point is to find a partner with whom a family can be built.
This is the day Aaron got married to Hannah Rivke. They used to play as kids but had met only once before as teenagers, behind open doors, with parents close by.
