Jennifer and Aviv
Unlike in America, the custom of creating a wedding registry does not exist in Israel. Instead, wedding guests traditionally give the bride and groom money to help them start their lives together. We have decided to combine the customs of our home countries by creating a special honeymoon registry. Your help in making our adventure of a lifetime in Sri Lanka and the Maldives possible is tremendously appreciated -- and you can be sure we'll be thinking of you while we're tracking elephants on safari, swimming in the rain forest, and snorkeling in the Indian Ocean!Maldives
