In memory of Rabbi Gavriel & Rebbetzin Rivkah Holtzberg HYD - Shluchim to Mumbai, India*
The Torah is concerned about one’s money. Therefore the Torah wants one to use his money on Torah oriented issues. If there is a surplus of money, it should be given to charity. Therefore, I find no Torah support to spend money for brothers and sisters to travel overseas to a sibling’s wedding! Conversely, it’s very important for parents to be at the wedding.
