L'Chaim!

I went to a l'chaim - engagement party last night.

A simple and interesting explanation can be found here [jewishweddingnetwork.com].

Some partial explanations for the (obvious in the pics) gender separation can be found here [chabad.org] and here [chabad.org].

All iPhone pics

At some point during the celebration, the “choson” (groom) recites a chassidim “maamar” or very deep discourse. Some of the women have come over to hear it. Some people are listening intently.
