Stu Shiffman and Andi Shechter will celebrate their betrothal with a Tenaim ceremony in Seattle on July 18. They made the announcement on CaringBridge today, June 19:
We have been together for 25 years. On June 13, 2012, Stu suffered a serious stroke from which he has recovered to a major extent, although he still has more healing to do. In March of 2013, Andi turned 60 years old, while Stu will have his 60th birthday in February of 2014. We feel that we have good reason to talk about love and commitment.
We hope that about a year from now, we will have our wedding ceremony, again with the support of Rabbi [Jessica K] Marshall and that you will be able to attend. We sort of figured we’d better start planning the party early. We hope you’ll celebrate with us, now and in the year ahead, virtually or literally, from near or far.
Congratulations! – this is exciting news.
