Recently, a couple in the Indian state of Odisha decided to have a unique wedding celebration. Instead of hosting a feast for friends and family, they arranged a special treat for nearly 500 stray animals to celebrate their big day. Social media users in India shared an October 11 news report, congratulating the couple.

Ever since Eureka Apta, a pilot-turned-filmmaker, and Joana, a dentist, started dating three years ago, they both discussed how to make their wedding special. The couple started saving money to donate for a charitable cause.

Earlier this year, the couple happened to visit an animal shelter, where the sight of disabled and abandoned hybrid animals moved 27-year-old Apta. He said: “Early this year, we rescued a dog which had met with an accident.

Family and friends from Northeast Florida and beyond couldn’t come to Mark and Nicola Pollitt’s pandemic lockdown wedding in England, so they passed around a cellphone and had the few people there video it to post on Facebook.

The whole day was a rousing success, even though one of the filmers inadvertently turned the camera backward and filmed themself instead of the wedding for a good 10 minutes.

“This mobile phone was like a hot potato,” Nicola said. “No one wanted to touch it.”

Still, even the weather cooperated — which was hardly a sure thing in notoriously rainy York, the ancient city where the Pollitts were married near the little village where they live.

It was a “magical day,” Nicola said, but one tinged with sadness that family couldn’t be there.

“Heartbreaking,”

School of Law gift will strengthen Creighton’s ties to Jewish community | Sponsored Features

In 2021, law students will attend local high school visits coordinated by the Institute for Holocaust Education during its “Week of Understanding” — a program in which Holocaust survivors share their experiences. With fewer and fewer survivors remaining, Creighton will strive to keep their stories alive.

“Through this innovative partnership, Creighton is equipping our most precious asset, our students, to address this particular form of racism in a profoundly meaningful way — one which builds on a historically strong relationship with our Jewish community,” says Michael Kelly, JD, Creighton professor and State Sen. Allen A. Sekt, JD’36, Endowed Chair in Law.

Kelly, who accompanies students on the annual trips, says the program continues the law school’s long relationship with the Jewish community. He notes that the namesake of his own endowed title was Jewish, as were Milton Abrahams, BA’26, JD’27, HON’86, and Philip Klutznick, JD’30, HON’56, who endowed the legal
