Bride vs. Power Co.
Only in Israel gives us the story of Bride vs. Power Co.
The next day he called and in a happy voice conveyed his best wishes for the upcoming wedding. He asked me to tell the bride Mazel Tov [congratulations] and that she would have electricity because he personally went to look at the location and he found a solution.
So we get up bright and early on Sunday, and lo and behold, there is a generator parked right outside of our building. That’s right – our building was hooked up to electricity all day from our own private generator while the rest of the neighborhood had a blackout!
It was truly amazing. There are people here with big hearts who made it clear that our happiness was important to them as well.
We sent a warm thank-you letter to the electric company along with the attached pictures.
Indeed, only in Israel! How can you beat an amazing story like this? Truly Mi K’Amcha Yisrael — “who is like your nation, Israel” — with all the stories we hear about Israel’s bureaucracies, this is truly heartwarming.
Oh, and Mazal Tov to the Chosson and Kallah!
Thank you for this post.
May we all look for the positive and good and heartwarming rather than the evil and divisive.
