Chabad’s visiting hospital service helped lead to a Jewish wedding in Berlin. Israelis Enbal Edri and Sharon Levi married in Berlin on Jan. 10, at the German Heart Institute in Berlin. The couple, who planned to wed in Israel last summer, had rushed to Berlin instead when the heart condition of Edri’s 2-year-old daughter, Chanie, worsened. Chanie, Edri’s child by a previous marriage, is awaiting a transplant. Rabbis Yehudah Teichtal and Shmuel Segal got to know the couple and Chanie during hospital visits that are part of Chabad’s chaplaincy in Berlin. The Chabad rabbis organized and performed the couple’s belated wedding ceremony at the Chabad center there, before a crowd of friends, family and guests from the Israeli Embassy, including Israel’s consul general, Gad Lahad.
