Last night hundreds of Jews gathered to celebrate the wedding of Esti Shemtov and Shua Hecht.
Esti, the daughter of Rabbi Shemtov of DC’s Chabad, has been a pillar of the DC Jewish community throughout her time here. Most recently, she has been leading online and group learning classes for women, organizing Shabbat dinners for hundreds of local young professional Jews, and much more.
Rabbi Shua Hecht, from Nice, France, has been learning and teaching in the US for the past few years. With his black hat, he is quite possibly the tallest Jew in DC, even towering over Steve Davis, Stephen Richer, and Aaron Wolff.
We wish Esti and Shua the best, and hope that they will come visit us in DC!
