Around 25,000 guests showed up for a wedding in Jerusalem on Monday night after a member of a prominent ultra-orthodox Jewish family got married.

Shalom Rokeach, 18, got married to 19-year-old Hannah Batya Penet in a traditional ceremony this week. The ceremony lasted several hours until the early morning, reported the Daily Mail.

Rokeach is described as the future leader of the Hasidic dynasty Belz Rebbe, which dates back to the 14th century in Poland.
