The Toldos Aaron Rebbe Shlita has announced a new takona, prohibiting bochrim in yeshiva gvoha from participating in weddings, Chadrei Chareidim reports. Roshei yeshiva in the chassidus have spread the word to their talmidim.
The rebbe explained in recent months there were many weddings in which many talmidim took part, and now, it’s the winter zman and many more chasanas are planned. He feels there is simply too much bitul Torah from the third seder and night sedorim.
The new takona will take effect gradually. In stage one; the chosson’s friends will not be permitted to attend with the exception of his friends from Shiur Gimmel. In stage two; a משמחים vaad will be established, made up of a number of avreichim, and the vaad members will be the only ones authorized to attend and dance at the chasenah, representing the others.
