TEHILLIM: Israeli Chassan In Critical Condition After Falling At His Wedding
February 14, 2022
A wedding in the city of Modiin ended on a frightening note after the chassan received a serious head injury from falling from a height of almost ten feet (3 meters), Ynet reported

As is done at countless weddings, the friends of the 34-year-old chassan had lifted him up on a table as part of the dancing and he somehow fell backward off the table, hitting his head on the floor and instantly losing consciousness.

Paramedics were called and he was evacuated to Sheba Medical Center in Tel HaShomer, where he was hospitalized in the ICU, sedated and ventilated. Unfortunately, his condition did not improve overnight and doctors reported on Monday morning that they are continuing to fight for his life.

HaRav Yehudah Meizlik, who officiated at the chasunah and has been close to the chasan since he became frum ten years ago, told Channel 12 News: “They lifted the chassan on a table and at a certain point he apparently lost his balance and fell on the back of his head from a height of three meters. He lost consciousness and the soundman at the wedding, who’s a senior MDA paramedic, administered emergency medical aid.”

“There was screaming and commotion. He’s a wonderful bachur, a successful accountant who waited a very long time to get married. It was such a happy and big wedding and it ended in tza’ar. His wife accompanied him to the hospital in her wedding gown. We have to stop this dangerous minhag of lifting [the chassan and kallah] at weddings.”


The dancing at the wedding prior to the terrible accident.
Israeli singer Amiran Dvir responded similarly to the incident, stating: “Perhaps it would be worthwhile to end the minhag of lifting the chassan on a table. This isn’t the first chassan that was injured as a result of it.”

The soundman, Pini Rotshtein, later posted a video on social media, saying: “I can’t get the sound of the screaming of the kallah and his parents out of my head. All the members of the band and myself are accepting upon ourselves, and I hope that other bands join us, to stop the music if they lift the chassan in a dangerous way.”

The public is asked to daven for Itai ben Ahuva l’refuah sheleimah b’toch shaar cholei Yisrael.

May he have a refuah shelaima. Heartbreaking, and hopefully the dangerous trend at weddings and bar mitzvahs will end.

Chareidi site Kikar hashabbat has an article with many singers and musicians pledsing begging and screaming to stop this dangerous thing! There is no excuse whatsoever why this should be accepted.

Kudos to them for taking an actionable lesson. It's no help to this victim but I never did understand why people aren't scared to throw people around like that.

Praying for a refuah sheleima. I don't believe in laying blame after something happens but I do believe in being proactive and avoiding unnecessary risks.

Oy Hashem Yishmor.

I also think they need to stop the juggling of fire at weddings.
I was at a wedding where the juggler dropped his torch and had to be taken to the hospital for burns.

While it's tragic, and I wish the chassan a refuah shlayma, there are ways to do it safer to prevent injuries. In the decades that it has been customary at weddings there have been relatively few accidents.

Relatively few is a few too many!!!!!!!
Even one accident should be enough to stop this practice. Its unnecessary so why take even a tiny risk.

There was a wedding a few days ago in Bnei Brak where they brought some type of party popper that exploded and a few people were injured.

That custom should IMHO be abolished. There is a mitzvah of " ve nishmartem meod"

Correct. Last week. It was a home made party pepper which caused people to be hospitalized! And not light injuries!

I often find myself holding my breath at Israeli weddings. There is also this thing where 2 rows of people facing each other throw the chattan or kallah around. It makes me crazy.
I hope this is a wakeup call
