Lots’a Chasidim

Lots'a Chasidim

Some 25,000 Belz chassidim packed the wedding ceremony of Rabbi Shalom Rokeach, Grandson of the Belzer Rebbe, and Chana Batya Pener, May 22, 2013, in Jerusalem.

Pretty amazing images. It says something about these people’s comfort with one another in close quarters. I find it very difficult to be standing or sitting so close to so many other people for long stretches of time. I guess the secret to these folks’ obvious sense of ease in the crowd is that they’re used to it, and they know the people they’re huddling with.

Here are a few more crowd images from the same wedding:
