A brother tells me that the reason people make fun of the chasan during this time is because people are jealous. So they make fun of the chasan to prevent the ayin hara.
Is this the real reason?March 19, 2013 5:19 pm at 5:19 pm #938858abra cadabraParticipant
I never heard anyone make hurtful jokes at any Sheva Brochos. And I’ve been to many.March 19, 2013 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #938859FerdParticipant

Need I say more?March 19, 2013 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #938860🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
I’m chassidish and I’ve been to many sheva brachos. I’ve never heard anything but praise for the chassan, kallah and their respective families. Sometimes humorous anecdotes are mentioned, but never anything to bring down the chassan.March 19, 2013 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #9388612scentsParticipant
Please explain how chassidim come into play?March 19, 2013 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #938862
I never heard anyone do this either, but I’m on the ladies’ side, maybe I missed it.
achosid – sorry I don’t know where chassidim come in here either.March 19, 2013 7:26 pm at 7:26 pm #938863abra cadabraParticipant

The speakers whisper so low that those on the other side of the mechitza cannot hear them? What made you think the men were cracking jokes at the expense of the choson?March 19, 2013 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #938864
abracadabra: We’re usually talking… and most of the vorts/lchaims etc that I attend are not in halls, they’re in homes. And I only come for a few minutes. It’s entirely possible I missed something like this.
Besides there are enough references to it that it must happen.March 20, 2013 12:57 am at 12:57 am #938865SecularFrummyMember
Jokes at the aufruf is a regular thing, in my experience. But its mainly between a guy and his close friends….and whichever of the parents’ friends are in the room.
