The Chatan and Kallah were Anna and Leib Engel. The name of the Rav is Avraham Israel Jacobson, sitting to the far right. Most of the guests were survivors who came to the town of Orebro (capital o with umlaut) in Sweden. The wedding took place in Orebro around 1953. I am looking for more names. Photo found in my late parents album.

2/19/2016 12:42 AM Daniel, ser att du nu publicerat fotot. Kol Hakavod! Tänker försöka trycka upp kopia på söndag och visa för Ika, en gammal dam här i Jerusalem som var i Sverige ett antal år efter kriget och fortfarande talar svenska. Kanske kommer jag på några fler man kan fråga. Shabbat Shalom, Seth
