The same thing as a Shabbos Kallah. Kind of. For the Choson.
ok thank you.
just another excuse to party. they already have something like the Shabbos kalla for the chosson its called the aufruf.
Sounds like play rehearsal, to me.
The opposite of a nochspiel.
Forshpiel is usually a celebration for a “Rebisha” chosen before the chasene. Often the Chassidim will leave an envelope to help cover the Chasene or give the young couple a helpful monetary start.
