Samaritans Celebrate First Wedding in Years

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

The fast-dwindling Samaritan community here had a rare occasion to celebrate recently — a wedding.

The group of 200 persons has quite a marriage problem. The shortage of women leaves a score of men unmarried since no marriage is permitted outside the group.

The wedding was the first in years and followed intense competition for the dusky lady’s hand.
