Wedding and birth

R Yisrael Najarah wrote a famous "ketubah" for Shavuot, a document to ratify the marriage between God and Israel. For a nice, short analysis, see this article. And mazal tov to the author (of the article) and his wife on the birth of their son on Monday!

Note this in the Wikipedia article (unfortunately, footnote 7 in Itay's article is missing):
For his hymns on the marriage of God and Israel, Najara was severely blamed by Menahem Lonzano (Shete Yadot, p. 142) when the latter was at Damascus.
