6/26/2013 10:32 PM The names of the bridal pair are:n Aryeh son of David Prensky ... has the community he is from which I'm not trying to decipher ... to
Rashe daughter of Zisel Hempel (The H and G are often interchangeable) from Vilki

Marriage took place on 2 Tishri, supposedly 2nd Sept. But perhaps there is a difference becasue of a gregorian calendar, because I could not find an instance in the calendars we use, where 2 Tishri = 2 Sept.
Regards,
Madeleine
6/30/2013 9:42 AM September 2, 1901 in the Julian calendar is indeed 2 Tishrei. It is highly unlikely the wedding took place on that day, though, since it is the 2nd day of Rosh Hashanah.

The note on the bottom explains, but I can't fully decipher the handwriting. I would observe that according to Jewish law there are several ways in which a marriage occurs.
