25,000 ultra Orthodox Jews attended one of the largest weddings Jerusalem has ever seen this week, when Belz hassidic dynasty rebbe, Rabbi Tissachar Dov Rokeach, married off his 18-year-old grandson Rabbi Shalom Rokeach to 19-year-old Hannah Batya Penet, also a member of the Belz Rebbe family. The ancient family's roots date back to 14th century Poland.
