NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — A major street in New Brunswick will be closed Thursday night to accommodate hundreds attending an Orthodox Jewish rabbi’s wedding.

Rabbi Ephraim Carlebach of Holmdel is marrying Rochel Klein of Melbourne, Australia. Carlebach is the son of Rabbi Yosef Carlebach, the executive director of Chabad House Lubavitch of Central New Jersey.

College Avenue, which runs through the Rutgers University campus, will be closed from Senior Street to Richardson Street from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The traditional chuppah, or Jewish wedding ceremony canopy, will be located in front of Chabad House.
