Weddings

Joshua Skootsky, 32, of San Francisco, married Dr. Rochela Neiman, 30, of Suffern, New York, in Rockland County, New York, on a sunny May 26, 2024. The wedding was officiated by Rabbi Dovid Rube of Wesley Hills, New York, and was attended by family and friends, who were entertained by a lively staged sword fight between husband and wife. Both have undergraduate degrees from Yeshiva University, where they first met. They were reintroduced late last year by a mutual friend. The couple plans to live in New City, New York, where Neiman works as a veterinarian.
