My son isĀ 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.

The young people satĀ outside in the heat, while the oldies (like me) were inside with the air conditioning.
