Dr. Mitzvah and the Missing Wedding

Yaffa Ganz

Cedarville was making a wedding and everyone was in a flurry of excitement. Judy Levine, the town artist, and Danny Simon, the town’s new, young dentist were getting married!

Mr. Knocker the carpenter built the chuppah; the girls collected flowers to decorate it, and the boys hung all the flowers up. The men in the ElderHome painted the dining hall; and Mrs. Mendelson, Mrs. Morgenstern, and Mrs. Moscowitz baked cakes and cookies. Mrs. Samsonoff and Mrs. Shveig helped sew the bridal gown; Mrs. Skolnik fixed Judy’s hair; and Mrs. Slutzkop and Mrs. Mitzvah arranged the couple’s new house. Dr. Mitzvah oversaw all the arrangements.

“I think everything is in order,” he said on the day of the wedding. “The food and decorations are ready; Danny’s rav is on his way here. Mr. Eini will play his violin and Mr. McMorfig the zookeeper will play his trumpet so we can have both Quiet and Noisy Music.”

“All we have to do now is hope it won’t rain!” said Mrs. Greenwald.
