The Vort (Engagement Party)
Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 10, 2014
My son is engaged! Here are some photos from the Vort (engagement party). The mothers break a china plate (inside the pillow case) to symbolize the finality of the commitment. We broke an ordinary side plate, not the painted one in the photo above. Full photo set is on Flickr.
Power failure in the middle of the evening. They’re used to it.
The young people sat outside in the heat, while the oldies (like me) were inside with the air conditioning.
