A Gift of Love
A few years ago, two good friends came together with a purpose in mind: help people meet their Bashert (soulmate). The two friends meticulously thought through all of the people they knew and decided to introduce Alicia to Larry. Weeks later, and following a somewhat turbulent start, Alicia and Larry grew inseparable.

Soon, their love will be solidified under the chuppa and Kiddushin, according to Jewish Law.

Alicia & Larry have chosen their special way to say “thank you” for their fortune of meeting one another. 

To honor their matrimony, please click on the donation button above.

Lovely words from Alicia & Larry’s gift registry: WE ARE BLESSED . . . . We don’t want anything more except to experience the pleasure and joy of celebrating this simcha with the people that matter most to us. So we do not want you to bring gifts. If you’d like to do something, we can think of nothing better than honoring the two women that brought us together and donating to their very worthy causes. So thank you Ayelet Lichtash and Manette Mayberg — there are no words to express the gratitude we have for your efforts in helping us find each other. We will, and hope that others will too if they are so inclined, donate to the very worthy projects you have created, Alef Bet Montessori School and the Jewish Women’s Renaissance Project. With love, Alicia and Larry
