Note to all you singles out there: your bashert might be on a KlezKamp bus. In a week when all the last names in the New York Times “Weddings/Celebrations” section scream INTERMARRIAGE (Schulman/Walden, Melville/Golding, Cohen/Hessel), Yael Kornfeld and Avram Mlotek get a massive piece on their big Yiddish wedding.  For those of you who aren’t in the know in terms of the Yiddish world, this is about as big as the Chelsea Clinton wedding:
