Rabbi Menachem Lazar and Rebbetzin Lazar, directors of Chabad Piazza Bologna in Rome, embarked on a meaningful journey to Israel to officiate the wedding of two former students, Shamil and Shachar, who blossomed into accomplished doctors at La Sapienza University in Rome. The couple, integral members of the Chabad family during their time in Rome, found solace and guidance in their Jewish heritage, particularly under the mentorship of Rabbi and Rebbetzin Lazar.

Shamil’s journey in rediscovering his Jewish roots flourished during his time in Rome, nurtured by the supportive environment of the Chabad community. His growth in Judaism became intertwined with his academic pursuits, culminating in his and Shachar’s transition into the medical field.

The decision to have Rabbi Menachem Lazar officiate their wedding in Israel symbolizes the enduring impact of their time in Rome and the profound connection they maintained with their spiritual mentors. Against the serene backdrop of Kibutz Shfaiim, Rabbi Lazar presided over the joyous union, blending tradition and modernity in a heartfelt ceremony.

“For Shamil and Shachar, their journey is not just about academic achievements but also about spiritual growth and connection,” Rabbi Menachem Lazar reflected. “To be entrusted with officiating their wedding is a humbling honor, reaffirming the bonds forged within the Chabad family and the enduring legacy of our teachings.”

The wedding celebration, attended by family and friends, was a testament to love, faith, and shared values. Amidst the lush surroundings of Kibutz Shfaiim, Shamil and Shachar marked the beginning of a new chapter in their lives infused with the richness of their Jewish heritage.

As Rabbi Menachem Lazar and Rebbetzin Lazar witnessed the union of Shamil and Shachar, they were reminded of the transformative power of mentorship and the profound impact of fostering a vibrant Jewish community. The wedding in Israel served as a poignant reminder of the far-reaching influence of Chabad and the enduring bonds that connect individuals across borders and generations.
