My wife, Marine and I live in Paris, France. We were very fortunate to be taught and guided by Rabbi Sabbah in preparation of our wedding.
Knowing Rabbi Sabbah from a trip to Australia, we didn’t want anyone but him to prepare us for this momentous occasion, the happiest day of our lives.
At first, the time difference between Paris and Australia and the means to communicate seemed to make this impossible. However we were very relieved when Rabbi Sabbah explained his new online study website.
We arranged one to two appointments each week with Rabbi Sabbah, using the online calendar, that allowed us to choose a time that suited us best, based on the sessions that were available that week.
During these exchanges by video conference, we particularly appreciated his sensitivity and the pedagogy used to explain the meaning of the laws that we did not yet know. We also had the opportunity to see his knowledge, always brought with clear and practical examples. Without judgment and always with kindness, we learned at our own pace, what constitutes the foundation of our married life today.
This program was so important to us, that we asked Rabbi Menachem Sabbah to marry us in Paris. It was with pleasure that Rabbi Menachem agreed and made the trip from Australia to be present on the day of our wedding.
The memories will be with us forever.
