ARTHUR AND MIRIAM'S WEDDING

Brooklyn, New York

 

In a synagogue somewhere near the end of Coney Island, my uncle Artie and aunt Miriam married, subsequently moving to the surrounds of our nation's capitol.

 

"The wedding took place in a lovely Reform synagogue in Brighton Beach. It seemed like it was the hottest day of the year, and there was no air-conditioning. There was no caterer, so everybody pitched in and brought sandwiches, potato salad, coleslaw, something to eat."- Miriam
