A story about
Chet has the very important job of holding up the chupa at weddings. A chupa is the canopy that a bride and groom stand under when they get married. How did Chet get such a great job? Well, one day after shul on Shabbat, Chet’s Rabbi came over to it and said, “Chet, it looks like you have the perfect structure to hold up a Chupa, you have 2 strong legs and a solid beam across, just like a Chupa! You’re the perfect match to ensure that every Chupa is standing strong and tall.” Chet was very excited about its new job. The following year, Chet itself was getting married and became the groom. In Hebrew a groom is called Chatan. Chet was so excited to learn that both the Chupa and he, the Chatan start with the letter Chet!
