In the first full-scale religious Jewish wedding in Kosice, Slovakia, in 60 years, Los Angeles-born Shawn Landres married Zuzana Riemer in an open-air ceremony. Landres, a graduate student at both Oxford University and the University of California at Santa Barbara, met his bride during a winter sports camp for Slovak Jewish youth in 1998. Kosice is home to several hundred Jews, the country’s second largest Jewish community after the capital, Bratislava.
