Couple gets engaged at the movies

JERUSALEM, Dec. 30 (JTA) — An Israeli computer student made sure he and his girlfriend didn’t miss the previews when they went to the movies this week. Ronen Gotlieb, 26, arranged for the Tel Aviv Cinematheque to screen a short clip prior to the feature that had him in a starring role — proposing marriage to his girlfriend, 26-year-old Limor Tirkel. Tirkel, a law student, burst into tears. She accepted the proposal — to the congratulations from the rest of the audience. The happy couple didn’t stay for the film, but instead went out for dinner to celebrate.
