Only in Israel gives us the story of Bride vs. Power Co.
The next day he called and in a happy voice conveyed his best wishes for the upcoming wedding. He asked me to tell the bride Mazel Tov [congratulations] and that she would have electricity because he personally went to look at the location and he found a solution.
So we get up bright and early on Sunday, and lo and behold, there is a generator parked right outside of our building. That’s right – our building was hooked up to electricity all day from our own private generator while the rest of the neighborhood had a blackout!
It was truly amazing. There are people here with big hearts who made it clear that our happiness was important to them as well.
We sent a warm thank-you letter to the electric company along with the attached pictures.
Indeed, only in Israel! How can you beat an amazing story like this? Truly Mi K’Amcha Yisrael — “who is like your nation, Israel” — with all the stories we hear about Israel’s bureaucracies, this is truly heartwarming.
Oh, and Mazal Tov to the Chosson and Kallah!
