Marrying outside their ethnicity and marrying someone non-chassidish isn't the norm by Biyaners, but this guy did it and he and his wife are very happy. Anyway, the Moroccan wife decided to dedicate a sefer Torah, which called for a huge celebration.
What ended up happening was a huge celebration was organized and in addition to the Biyaner Rebbe and other important Biyaner personages, important Sefardi rabbis attended too.
This also called for a mix of music.
Happily, when Sefardi songs were played, the chassidim danced and sang with the Sefardim to Sefardi music using the Sefardi Hebrew pronunciation. Then when chassidish songs were played, the Sefardim danced and sang to the chassidish music with the chassidish Hebrew pronunciation.
And all the participants danced and sang to each others' nusachim with great gusto.
"If Am Yisrael would be like this all the time," enthused my neighbor, "then Mashiach would already be here!"
Then she emphasized that she was just repeating what everyone else at the celebration was saying.
And she's right.
Yet again, I see how much regular Jews want to unite with each other.
May this aspect of us always shine through!
